    Swop the DJI Camera to GoPro in Seconds and still use the FPV link on the Vision APP.
    Amazing what this guy is developing, check it out.

    I have used my gopro camera and noticed no more than 50 feet or so I lose the video feed, how would I use the app, and were do I buy gimball from?

    Will be a good option when I break my original camera. However I hope they come out with a nice connector as I am not sure I am liking the circuit board contacts I see in the video.

    I love my P2V+
    - its RTF
    - fairly simple to use, especially with the Vision App.

    But I wish I could put a better camera on.

    Perhaps the DJI guys who are reading this will

    1. Do a camera upgrade
    - allow P2V+ owners to purchase newer, better camera that can be easily replaced

    2. Do a Phantom 3
    - with GoPro mount and Vision App connectivity.

    Judging by the raw ability of the camera stills, I think the camera is able to perform better even with the limited CCD on the camera.
    The problem seems to be the rate of data storage to the SD card. They provided 4gig class 6 speeds.
    If they went with class 10's, they could have upped the rates. Maybe they can address this with a new firmware update.

    I can't wait till the hot swap camera is released.
