    I've found many links for attaching a Tarot T-2D to a Phantom 1, but I'm looking at buying a Tarot T-2D v.2 for my Phantom 2. It looks like I need an adapter plate made specifically for the P2. I believe that I've found a couple options for this that are from the US (where I'm located, meaning a little quicker shipping).

    My questions are, what else do I need to order to get this gimbal mounted and working (battery, battery cables, etc.)? It looks like I should have a separate power source vs getting power from the Phantom. It also looks like the S3 lipo battery is the way to go, or is it???

    It also looks like I will need either longer legs or leg extensions also. If I go with leg extensions / spacers, how much extension should I look for? I've seen 10mm and 30mm. I'm sure the 30mm would do the trick, but can I get away with just the 10mm?

    Also, any mounting suggestions, tips or tricks that others have learned with this gimbal?

    Thanks for any help!

    Wow, no one else has ever set up a Tarot T-2D gimbal on a Phantom 2?
