    I am new to this but pretty adventurous. I have a DJI Phantom 2 just bought two months ago. My Zenmuse H3 3D bottom aluminum bracket broke in a 50 foot loss of power fall. I decided to by a cheaper gimbal from goodluckbuy online and didn't pay attention that it was for a phantom 1 where the power connects directly to a cable attached to the battery. Is there anyway I can get this to work with DJI Phantom 2 with the intelligent flight battery 5200 mAh? I saw a thread that described attaching these two wires (red and black) to the red and brown wires that plug into the cam spot, but that has the onboard receiver for fpv plugged into it. I got a hub board and plugged the brown and red wires into the vtx outlet. If I strip and join the wires will that work. Or am I out of luck and just need to sell this one on ebay and buy one for the phantom 2? Sorry for the long post, first time on here, wanted to get all the info on here.
