    It will work, you just need to link them by pushing the button underneath the phantom. You should consider buying a Fubata though - the stock transmitter is such a dinky toy.

    I got a bargain for TradeMe (like eBay but in NZ) - was only $250 and came with 2 receivers. I got the T8J which is perfect - lots of helpful setup videos online. Do some homework though because the slightly better models (not sure which ones) will talk to the existing P2 receiver so you won't need to open the P2 and swap receivers. I had to and didn't find it too difficult - and I'm fairly noob.

    futaba 14sg is way better then the DJI, Especially if you shoot video with the gimbal, as the gimbal stick has no response when u move it for like the first half inch then jarring movement, the futaba sliders are awesome and programmable to have slow movements if u want
