    Can you install the P2V+ gimbal and camera on a P2V or are the electronics inside the Phantom too different? If you could can the gimbal and camera be purchased? Cost? Just a thought on improving the video.

    I'm very new at this, but I would think that you'd be better off putting an H3-3D/GoPro rig on it instead, unless you got the P2V+ gimbal/cam for free. The GoPro has better picture quality.

    The P2V camera has the 2.4GHz (including antenna) stuff inside while the P2V+ has that gear inside the main aircraft. As a result the cable from craft to camera for the P2V carries the flight info so it can be transmitted to the Android/IOS app while the P2V+ does all that inside the main craft.

    There's little chance (unless you are very smart) that you could transplant the P2V+ camera into a P2V

    No, not worth it. Cheaper and easier to buy a p2v+

    I kind of thought that would be the answer.
    Thanks for all comments.
