    Great! I'm considering putting on osd and fpv on my P2 (which has Zenmuse). I noticed you have a P2V, too. Why? (this is an honest question - I'm considering getting one even though I have the P2 with the better gimbal). Do you think it will be useful since you have the other two versions?

    just took the phantom 2 with gimbal out on my go pro wow what a difference just put it up against my vision footage and i started to get sea sick lol from the vision footage ... too cut a long story short the vision camera bricked itself on monday after the latest firmware update so i took it back to my dealer who is also stumped on what is wrong with it so while trying to fix it the phantom 2 was there on his counter staring at me ... some how between trying to fix the vision and my credit card i walked out with the phantom 2 leaving the vision to be repaired .. maybe a blessing in disguise maybe i won't go back lol ...
    no i still love my vision but apart from them looking the same they have there own applications on what you could use them for . It has just make the tool box just a little bit more flexible ... looking at icemans kit i think he knows what im taking about each one of his phantoms will have its own appplications you could use it for..

    Re: My new DJI Phantom 2 set up completed today very pleased

    Do you have any specifics? What will the P2V do better than the P2 with gimbal (and osd and FPV)? And, vice versa...
    Need help with what the P2V is better at - and I'm not trolling or baiting, I really want to hear from users who have both.

    edit: And so I'm not stealing the thread - as much -. I had a P1 and went to a P2 with gimbal and the difference in the video was night and day. I can really identify with the OP being pleased.

    same here.

    iceman, how do you like the black pearl? and how come you are only using a rubber duckie on the p2?

    what's the range you get from it?

    Thanks.

    Iceman, are you experiencing any compass issues with your video TX antenna being so close?
