    So, I just ordered a HD-3D Gimbal from buzzflyer, heres the link.

    https://www.buzzflyer.co.uk/product.asp ... rtRecord=1

    On arrival I unboxed it, and started watching this video on how to fit it...

    Got halfway through it and realised my Gimbal didn't come with a PMU V2? I am assuming it was meant to come with this as I dont see how to set it up without it :( Please can someone advise? I can buy one here

    However it would be a waste of money if it was meant to come with it in the first place..? Please advise me :(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(

    Looks like you bought the gimbal for the Phantom 2.
    Your best path forward is probably to buy the Phantom 2 mainboard to replace the mainboard in your FC40.
    The worse path is to buy the PMU V2 and the GCU. Both of these are integrated onto the Phantom 2 mainboard, which is cheaper and lighter.

    Thanks for the swift reply! Could you link me to the phantom 2 mainboard somewhere? My FC40 has the Naza Multirotor V2 at the moment!
