    I m among the many that that have had a minor crash and suffered a complete loss of the camera and gamble on my Vision 2+. I was wondering if anyone has replaced the camera with a GoPro and gamble? How would I go about that and maintain my FPV capabilities?

    Any suggestion are appreciated

    You can't. You would have to install a gimbal and add a telemetry module and fpv transmitter.

    Interesting. Looks like he's still using the original camera and ribbon cable which rules it out for most of the people with broken gimbals/cameras. Maybe when we can get ribbon cables it might be an alternative, but wonder how much it's really saving vs fixing the original..
