    Hey guys..

    I really want to the H3-3D zenmuse on my phantom. Since my
    original gimbal and camera both broke I don't want to replace it
    with another DJI Camera. Said that, I was wondering it it would be
    possible to buy a Phantom 2 Body and move over the internals of my
    Phantom 2 Vision Plus into there? As that may give me the opportunity
    to intall H3-3D Zenmuse gimbal?

    Any thoughts? Also, what are some of the troubles that you think may arise?

    There's really no advantage in changing the body since you can put a go pro and gimbal on any phantom. The problem is the go pro can't be bound to your wifi extender. You will have to get a different wifi transmitter for the go pro. See the FPV section on this forum...lots of people use go pro cameras on their phantoms. ;)

    Not a fan of DJI camera. Is doesn't hold up to the GoPro. Anyhow, I will just sell it and
    get the Phantom 2. Would you be able to explain to me the difference of 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz? What
    does that pertain to?

    the GHz is just the different wavelengths used for communications - cordless phones, mobiles phones, laptops etc.

    The vision series uses 5.8Ghz for flight controls and 2.4Ghz for FPV streaming.
    The NON vision series, ie Phantom 2, is the other way around. It uses 2.4Ghz for flight controls. If you want to have FPV, you need to look 5.8Ghz FPV kits.
