    So -- How about this for an easy PV+ beater...

    1/. Get a P2, with 3D gimbal and camera of your choice, which has wifi (Gopro, A5000....).

    2/. Swap out the rc receiver in the P2 for a PV 5.8GHz unit, hooked to gimbal to use the usual pitch mod.

    3/. Add a wifi repeater to the P2 to bridge to a high power repeater back at the PV transmitter end (could even use the existing PV one).

    Bingo -- You have a PV++ , with full wifi control of your camera....

    Discuss.. :D

    Well, it works for me... The trouble with all the P2 setups I've seen discussed it the lack of P2V style full camera control...

    So, all I need is a spare PV tx and rx... Anyone got a crashed PV they want to sell as parts? :)

    No PVs for scrap out there? To turn into cash for a PV+? :)
