    The 5.8ghz RC Controller types are:
    • Upgraded Version: NPVT581 <-- newer controller with camera tilt wheel on the left side
    • Basic Version: PVT581 <-- original controller with no camera tilt wheel
    • Alternative Version: RB-P58FS <-- third option coming

    For the Phantom FC40:
    Check if the Assistant PC program for the FC40 supports enabling the upgraded controller version.
    DJI's website info:
    For the Phantom 2 Vision :
    I assume the same as the Vision+. (or is it?)​

    For the Phantom 2 Vision+ :
    Must use the DJI Phantom 2 Vision Assistant_3.8 PC program to upgrade the Phantom 2 Vision firmware to support using the camera tilt wheel. There is a specific configuration check box indicating which type controller (new or old). ​

    • Both the Upgraded Version and Basic Version 5.8ghz will work on the the FC40 and also will work on the vision or vision + to
