    Hi All,

    We have a P1 which came with an H3-2D gimbal. We've added a Fatshark video TX. I am thinking about buying a GP Hero 3 but need to know if we need anything else apart from a cable to connect the camera to the video TX.

    I've opened the P1 up and the black cable from the gimbal connects directly to the main PCB. There are no other modules or interfaces. My confusion has been that on the DJI website the manual for the gimbal suggests you need interface module(s) in order for it to work. Is that correct?

    Cheers
    Daz

    It may not need anything. There were two models of H3-2D. If you got an older one it will have a plug on the right side that fits into the back of the GoPro that provides power and video interface.

    That's what I have. We also need, I think, the ribbon cable and connector which runs from the P1 PCB to our Fatshark video TX. Any clues as to where to get one from?
