    Please be patient with me, as I'm a novice at the modification of a Phantom.

    I have a Phantom 1. I'm getting the Zenmuse for the Phantom 1 with the GCU, and currently have the PMU for it.

    My question is this; Can I add the mini iOSD (original version) to the setup without a Can-Bus Hub?

    Thanks in advance

    Check out YouTube, I think I recall seeing a video showing how to do this.

    I appreciate the video, but that's for a Phantom 2. I have a Phantom 1 with a Zenmuse, and iOSD Mini.

    I'm hearing I can avoid the Can-Bus hub and just daisy chain the IOSD in between the CGU and PMU.

    The Mini iOSD have a can bus port on it. So fitting one will still mean you have just as many ports as before.

    So regardless of your set up, you can add a iOSD mini without lossing a can bus port.

    There is a way to add the can bus to the phantom 1. There is some soldering and peeling off some contacts and making some cables. I found the video on YouTube. Do some searches
