    Hello To All
    My name is Chris and I love in Southern New Jersey. I've been a longtime fan of the DJI Phantom Quads and finally getting a chance to purchase one. But not sure if I should go with Phantom original or Phantom 2? I'd like too add at some point a brushless gimbal but can't right away. I hear it's easy to install one one Phantom 2 rather than original? True? Just not sure which direction too go do I figured I'd ask everyone here. People with knowledge.

    Thanks So Much
    Hope to learn a lot here.

    Chris

    Welcome!
    Hello from Eastern MD. I'm just on the other side for the ferry from you.
    I can't comment on the gimbal install since I have a +.

    Get a Phantom 2 with a Zenmuse already installed. Save up your money until you can purchase that package.

    Phantom 2 without gimbal: $689.95 on B&H
    Phantom 2 with H3-2D gimbal: $869 on B&H (You pay $179.05 for the gimbal vs $349+ street price)
    Phantom 2 with H3-3D gimbal: $959 on B&H (You pay $269.05 for the gimbal vs $379+ street price)

    Either way you save money buying the package deal plus everything's already installed for you.
