    Sorry, very new to the whole RC thing, I am a photographer who wants to learn enough to get great video, but also like to tinker. I ordered a P2 and also a Banggood gimbal. I am not sure if I screwed up, seems like it may have just been for the original Phantom if you want the tilt, but it seems like it should be an easy hack with an adapter for the 8 conductor ribbon or a spare ribbon with a wiring diagram. Is there such an adapter or hack? Thanks a bunch, and I sure I have a few more beginners questions to come!

    If it's a generic gimbal, I think you plug the pitch connector into the F2 connector of the Naza module. You will not use the 8-pin ribbon, since that works only for DJI gimbals. Well, you could take power from there, if you want.

    I think you are correct, from watching the video on how to install on a P1, is it marked F2 inside or can I split the ribbon with a diagram? It would be nice if there was an adapter to take the ribbon to raw ends or something
