    For that connector there.

    1 - To pin 1 of CAM connector on Central PCB
    2 - To pin 2 of CAM connector on Central PCB, has 11.5M Pull-Down
    3 - Battery Voltage, Switched on off by MCU on Central board
    4 - Battery Voltage, Switched on off by MCU on Central board
    5 - GND
    6 - GND
    7 - CANH
    8 - CANL

    The pinout of the connector on the Central PCB is reversed though, I didn't design it so don't ask, but it's not the first time I've seen that stupid crap done.

    1 - CANL
    2 - CANH
    3 - GND
    4 - GND
    5 - Battery Voltage, Switched on off by MCU on Central board
    6 - Battery Voltage, Switched on off by MCU on Central board
    7 - To pin 2 of CAM connector on Central PCB, has 11.5M Pull-Down
    8 - To pin 1 of CAM connector on Central PCB

    Great, thank you so much RDCF550!

    Wow, really tech info there, at least for me at this time,
    I was wondering how to connect my basecam gimbal controller to the Naza,
    you know the FC_pitch and FC_roll pins on gimbal, thought that maybe this cable is the answer,
    but looking at schematic, not sure now.

    Welcome.

    You'll need to use the F1 (Roll) and F2 (Pitch) connections on the actual NAZA, they're not broken out on a cable anywhere.

    Sorry for extend this, I'm already using the F2 signal for Tilt of the Pitch, on stock RC,
    but if I connect the F1 and F2 to the FC_pitch and FC_Roll,
    then i will loose the Tilt control option right?

    Here is a diagram of connections
    RC pins are for tilt control, FC pins are for camera(gimbal) stabilization.
    I'm trying to keep the tilt function and get gimbal stability at same time,
    but guess with P2 not possible yet, at least with third party gimbals.

    I've never used that Gimbal, so I'm spitballing some here.

    It seems that if you were to use F2 on the FC_Pitch, that it would adjust the Pitch to the new setting from you moving it, while then using that data for stability compared to it's own sensor. Not going to hurt anything to try it.

    If it doesn't work that way, and you're on the stock DJI radio, you may want to upgrade to something with some more channels so you can have everything connected like they show.
