    Hi guys I have an unusual question. I know that you cant use a Phantom 3 radio on an Inspire but that you can use an Inspire radio on a Phantom. I was wondering if anyone knew what the reason was? I don't mean like DJI's business concept but rather what in the radio has been switched or changed. The reason I ask is that I have fitted my P3 radio to have the new HDMI output module and was wondering that now as it is pretty much the same as the Inspire radio would it work as the camera radio for an Inspire. I want to buy an Inspire and would like 2 controllers but don't want to buy another radio if I don't have to as they are very expensive. Thanks for any help

    Cheers
    Jason

    Yes you can use an Inspire controller w/ your P3. It doesn't work in reverse because the Lightbridge in the Inspire is more powerful than what's on the P3, so the P3 controller can't handle the Inspires LB signal.
