    Hey guys,

    I have a Phantom 2 with Zenmuse H3-3D installed ("Phantom 2 version" of the gimbal), but would like to utilize the H3-3D in another mulitrotor build with a "standard" NAZA M V2 setup (with PMU V2).
    Is it as simple as mounting the H3-3D to the new machine, buying a GCU V2 controller, and connecting the 8-pin gimbal wire to the GCU V2?

    Thanks.

    The gimbal controller also needs power as well,sure you knew that :)
    It also needs a can bus connection,if you have the PMU V2 there is a can bus port on there you can connect the GCU into.
    When you see the "extras" that are needed to fit a H3-3D to a non Phantom it makes you wonder how they got it all in the Phantom 2.
    I had one on my F450 breifly and the one thing I couldn't figure out was how to get the gimbal tilt up and down to work.
