    I'm so confused because there are videos saying the Gimbal needs soldering But I just talk to a guy with a phantom to that said that it was the easiest installation ever.

    He swore that to install his Gimpel he just plug it in and screwed it to the bottom of his phantom.

    What am I missing here?

    If you are talking about a Phantom 2 it is plug & play if using the made for P2 Zenmuse HD-2D gimbal.
    I am not certain but I believe the Phantom 1 requires soldering and a possible board upgrade.

    If the phantom has naza 1.0.0 or 1.1.1 you've got some soldering to do, and possibly a board upgrade. Naza 2.0.0 is more or less plug and play. Unless you want to get fancy and solder the power so you don't have to plug into the second plug on the battery. Phantom 1's have 1.0.0 or 1.1.1. fc40, phantom 2 and vision have 2.0.0
