    I flew my Phantom 2 with Zenmuse H3-2D, Fatshark transmitter, and IOSD mini for the first time yesterday. Moments after I took off my fpv video went out from the camera. I could still see the OSD so I know the Transmitter is working. I hear there are many problems trying to use the video from the gopro, but does anyone have a suggestion other than getting a different camera that might help? The recordings come out fine in case you were wondering.

    Also I am having a problem with the Gimbal. It almost seems as if the roll motor will stop and the camera will tip as if there is no power. It comes back and works for a bit, but then will do the same thing. Someone mentioned it might be overloading but I have no idea how to adjust it so this will not happen.

    Thanks for any help

    Go into the Gopro "Set Up" menu, find the "Manual Power Off" function and set it to MANUAL. The other settings will turn off the camera if you are not recording and no buttons have been pushed within XX seconds.

    You had me all excited for a moment, but when I got to that setting it was already set to manual :-( but thank you just the same. Sometimes something so simple could fix a problem. Take care
