    Hi all, newbie here.

    I am gonna buy a p2 with the H3-2d gimbal in a few weeks for use with my GoPro's. I am wondering if the remote controller comes with the ability to control the tilt on the gimbal or is that an upgrade?

    I look forward to flying!

    Yes, on the back of the remote there is a gimbal pitch lever. Comes stock like that.

    Are you sure you want the H3-2D and not the H3-3D?

    There are reasons for that choice just wanted you to know the latest gimbal is a 3 axis whereas the H2-2D is a 2 axis.

    Yes that is definitely something I need help with.....trying to figure out what the newest bestest stuff is. How hard is it to upgrade to fpv?

    I would say to upgrade to FPV you are looking at about $350. That would be a monitor, video transmitter and antennas.

    To upgrade is not difficult. There are ready made cables so no soldering is needed.
