    Are the two transmitters exactly the same? My P3S controller was defective, i sent it in for service, got an email saying service complete,and sending back to me, no charge.
    I got package today, it is a new in box controller with Phantom 2 Vision + on the box, red wrapping just like the P2 ones ive seen, and it has a little mounting device in a bag included.
    I thought the P2 V+ needed that external signal amplifier and the P3S was built in.
    I compared it side by side with a P3S, only difference i see is the camera tilt wheel is metal on the P2 and plastic on the P3.
    Just wondering if they are both the same, incase a mistake was made. I dont want to find out its the wrong controller when i put the aircraft in the air.
    Any help appreciated,
    Kevin

    The Plus has the metal scroll wheel and that mounting piece is for the extender . 2.4
    You have the wrong TX.

    Ok, I finally heard back from DJI, they wanted me to send photos showing that I did have a transmitter from a phantom 2 vision +.,their response was that they did send the correct transmitter.
    This just does not make sense to me. I just looked at specs off DJI website...
    P 3 STANDARD transmitter shows 1000m range for FCC and 500m for CE.
    The Phantom 2 VISION+ shows 500m FCC 300M CE.

    HAS ANYONE TRIED A P2V+ Controller?

    I'm gonna try it, but gonna call service and ask a human at dji repair facility. I will see if it connects but I want a person's name from DJI that says the P2V+ TX has the same range as P3S...

    I saw the pics of the wheels. I noticed that the P2V camera tilt wheel looks more metallic than the P3

    Yup as expected, my P3S will NOT CONNECT to the P2V+ controller.
    How do I make Dji understand?

    I would contact DJI Tim and see if he can help. Probably can.
