    Thinking of moving my Phantom electronics to a Tarot 650. Already have upgraded Tiger Motors, will add 30A Escs and was wondering if this would work with my current Naza-M V2? It appears to offer better control than the current GPS/Compass setup.

    Yes, you will definitely want that, as the Phantoms GPS is not protected at all, and would have to have the compass
    set up in a very similar fashion to the way it was on the Phantom.

    Naza should work perfectly, as long as you keep the side with M-1 F-2 facing the front.

    Was thinking of putting it above the shell like of my 550. Would that work?

    Certainly. You just have to make absolutely sure it's pointing the right direction. And don't allow the cable to get
    caught by the props.

    There was another guy who posted a few months ago, that did the same thing. He had the most beautiful paint job on
    his Phantom I had ever seen.

    Don't ever let yourself and creativity be slowed by tradition, or convention.. Let your mind free, to imagine, let your hands
    create what you have imagined, and show the uninitiated what is possible.
