    1. Is the name DJI Phantom 2 Vision or DJI Phantom Vision?

    2. Is it possible to use the P2V+-camera+gimbal on the P2V? This one:

    P2V doesnt have the same Wifi-Module...

    There are three cables from the gimbal-card. One that splits to CAM onto mainboard and the other to the Wifi-module.
    Cable two goes to the Wifi-module. And the third cable goes to the little board on the mainboard.

    No doubt it could be made to work but realistically no, there are so many changes including inside the phantom.

    In the P2V, the camera and wifi module are all in the same unit.
    In the P2V+, the camera and wifi module are separate. To upgrade the P2V to a P2V+, you'd need:
    - camera/gimbal assembly with mounting bracket
    - grey 3-ribbon cable set
    - anti-interference board with its cable
    - wifi module with the extra cable to the mainboard
    - antennas for the wifi module

    Thanks. I had opened both Phantoms and then I got it pretty quickly. :)
    My plan is to skip the gimbal (doesnt seem to work, but I guess it should, if there was en egg-camera FC200) and replace it with a GoPro-gimbal + other video-link + ...
