    Has anybody tried combining the best of all worlds?
    +A phantom 2 with a 1000m range and a remote control that can control a gimbal
    +A Phantom 2 VISION camera with the telemetry and phone app (http://www.heli-world.com/detail.aspx?ID=11500)
    +A 2 axis gimbal

    The P2 + the P2V camera cost almost as much as the complete P2V set but you get 3 times more range and the P2 is ready for a decent gimbal.

    What do you think of the idea?
    As anybody tried this setup?

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Nope, not possible. The Tx for the P2 uses 2.4Ghz , So you can't use the Vision camera because they are on the same frequency. (also 2.4) You'll get interference.

    But....t's not that hard to achieve a range between 900-1500 meters with a p2vision.

    Did you see this topic:

    Just use a TP-Link antenna and that s it.

    I didn't thought about the frequencies. Good call.

    I wonder thought how http://droneexpert.nl/ makes its "drone packet 6" work with the Phantom 2 vision camera and the 7th channel remote (I assume is the P2 Remote)...

    Product Description
    Drone packet 6 is included with:
    > DJI Phantom 2 Vision
    > Professional flightcase
    > 1 Phantom vision battery
    > 1 Phantom vision battery charger
    > 1 dronexpert keychord
    > 1 extra propellor set
    > 4GB storage card for Vision camera
    > DJI Vision Gimbal
    > 7th channel feature on DJI Remote
