    Hey everyone,

    I'm very interested in buying the Phantom 2. I've got a Panasonic GH2 and I was wondering, being a lighter camera, is it possible to mount a GH2 on the Phantom 2 instead of the GoPro? And if it is mountable, can you still see a live stream of the camera footage to fly the quadcopter?

    I'm moving up from a AR Drone 2 and looking to take things to the next level. Any help would be much appreciated! :)

    This GH2? http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/PanasonicDMCGH2

    It's almost 400g, so you might be able to fly it (if you don't pile on much else), but you'd have to get creative since there's not many off-the-shelf mounting options for cameras other than the gopro. I also have no idea how big it is in relation to the Phantom but you might be able to get away with it.

    I don't believe you'll be able to use the video output from that camera for flying or anything, unless it outputs some other way than HDMI.
