    Hello, I am in need of a new controller.
    The model controller I need to replace is PVT581.
    I'd like to know your recommendations for where to buy one.
    I'd like to know if there is an updated version of that controller with the usb on the outside.
    Also, how do I bind a new controller to my vision?

    Thank you

    yes i bought one from quadcopters uk with the usb on the outside. you can also buy from here http://www.helipal.com/dji-pvt581-5-8g- ... iever.html
    binding is easy, theres a small button that lights up red on the underside, you push this in when you turn on your new controller, plenty of info on google for rebinding, i dont want to give you false information!

    check out my video for a mod to allow straight down filming

    Hey Funkdoobies. Thanks you.
    I ordered and bonded the part from helipal but unfortunately it isn't the version with the usb on the outside.
    It did though come with a connector with a button on it. I'm not really sure what it's for.

    sorry to hear it wasn't the version with external usb. you can however mod the case and extend the internal one so you end up with the large end of a usb cable hanging out the bottom of you controller... just out of interest why don't you upload a picture of the connector you got?

    I received Model No. PVT581
    Like I said before, it also came with a circuit board type thing which is mostly covered in white rubber. It has two 3 pronged connections on it as well as two single leads coming from it which are about 8 inches long. I'm thinking it is a DR16 Receiver but I'm not sure what that is used for.

    yes you got the option that comes with a new receiver for inside the phantom. the two long wires are the antenna that go into the legs.

    Thank you funkdoobies. Will this get me better range or is it just a stock replacement?
