    I have the Fatshark predator and now I use the Phantom battery balance lead to power the tx.
    Would it be possible to power the Fatshark straight from the Phantom board? I,m already using that to power the Tarot gimbal.
    If that's possible would it be possible to power both from the same place?

    firstpersonview.com makes a number of cables for this type of thing. I got one for my IRC vtx that required no soldering and even connected to the mini iOSD. Plug and Play!

    Thank you. I might check that out. The thing is I think the Tx balance lead supply is broken and I need it the Fatshark working asap. So if I have another option I would go for that. :)

    What I´m thinking is if I can simply remove the balance lead tx and connect straight to the power lead inside the Phantom.

    Ok, I got a confirmation that it's possible to power it that way here: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KzpT_A9K-18
    Now all I need to know if it is possible to power both gimbal and transmitter on the same power lead.
