    Is it possible to mod the Phantom Vision or Phantom 2 to use regular batteries?
    I hate the fact that I am investing thousands on a machine only to have it tied down to a consumer-able part supplied by only one vendor (at inflated prices). What if they jack up the price or just don't make it anymore?

    Does the Phantom 2 / Vision uses a regular NAZA?
    If so, then something else must be sensing for the authenticity of the battery and either telling the PMU to not function or telling the NAZA to shutdown. If that is the case, then perhaps we can by-pass that or use a different PMU entirely and re-wire the power.
    If they use a different NAZA, then maybe the solution is to replace the NAZA.

    This is the single biggest frustration I have with this new product, otherwise it would be great.
    There must be a way to jail-break it
