    Hi,

    Finally received my Phantom. It's v 1.2

    Upgraded the software to 4.02.

    It has props with black and white nuts, self tightening. (Nuts are separate)

    Strange is that the tx does not beep at startup, so I can't check if its in European mode or US mode for tx power....?

    Tx version is not reported in the software, neither can I find a usb connection point in the tx?

    Transmitter mode is ppm, not d-bus....

    Transmitter is also v 1.2

    Haven't opened her up yet.

    No beeps for the tx seems strange to me, looking at the software it seems to work fine......

    You have a somewhat "rare" model there! The v1.2 was only a brief production. To the best of my knowledge the chain went V1.0 > V1.1> V1.2 > V1.1.1 . > . . vision. When you read details of what others have done to upgrade etc make sure they are referring to the "original" phantom. I have a V1.0 and I've never had to "update" my transmitter, I have done some mods to it and calibrated etc, but never connected to the computer (physically anyway). I'm pretty sure that's a Phantom Vision upgrade step :)

    First flight, uneventful, stable as a rock. Easier as the Hubsan, easier as the Guai in Phoenix RC sim. Next flight with shielded Mobius on my special camera mount :)

    (if the rain stops)

    Second flight, with Mobius. Still jello. Now waiting for the Gimbal to arrive, and the sun to shine:
