    The 25mW TX draws very little current and can be powered from anywhere between 6 to 25v so the 3s phantom battery is fine.
    Power can e taken from the Aux cable that is pre fitted in the Phantom.

    Which version of the Phantom do you have? That will determine where you can find the aux power lead The Editor mentions. And if it's a P1, we'll need to know if it has the upgrade board (necessary for H3-2D/H3-3D gimbals).
