    I had a bad experience this past week. I found out Phantoms can't swim! Unfortunately, my craft was blown toward a palm tree where it clipped a frawn just enough to cause the Phantom to drop about 5 feet to the pool deck below. The impact tore the Gimbal and GoPro from the mount (that was a good thing) then the craft took a bounce and landed in a swimming pool. I was fortunate enough to recover the craft with in a couple of minutes. I took it home, opened it up and put it into a trash bag filled with rice to aid in drying it out. In my haste to assist in the drying process, I disconnected the connections to the Naza 2 without marking exactly where they reconnect. Now, I want to reconnect the Naza and cables to see if the machine will come to life and also hook it up to the Phantom 2 Assistant software to check out the unit. I can't seem to find any instructions or better still photos of exactly where these connectors go. The board of the Phantom 2 is not marked that I can see to make a logical connection. So, if any of you can provide some closeup shots, I would greatly appreciate it. My craft has the ground station, the 5.8GHz transmitter and the iosd-mini attached to it. Non of these items were disconnected.
    Thanks,
    Embarrassed,

    Hello,
    I have the P2V, but here is my P2V NAZA hook ups:

    Here is the correct ( Stock ) P2V NAZA-M wiring.

    Picture 1:
    [​IMG]

    The Camera Servo wire connects ( Vertically ) up-down on ( F2 slot on NAZA-m box )
    ( see pic 1 above for correct color placement )

    The wire next to M2 plug on MC ( main controller ) plugs ( Horizontally )
    Side-side ( bottom most pins ) across ( M1/M2/M3/M4 ) pins!
    ( see pic 1 above for correct color placement )

    Ok,
    Picture 2
    [​IMG]

    USB Com port wire, ( plugs Horizontally ) top most pins, across
    ( A, E, T, R. Pins )
    ( see pic 2 for correct color placement )

    Picture 3:
    [​IMG]

    This wire hooks ( horizontally ) across ( U, X1, X2, X3 ) pins ( top most pins
    ( see pic 3 for placement )

    Picture 4:
    [​IMG]

    Wire #1 hooks ( vertically ) on X1 slot ( goes under pic 3 wire )
    Wire #2 hook ( vertically ) on X2 slot
    ( also goes under pic 3 wire )
    Wire #3 hooks ( Vertically ) on X3 slot
    ( goes under pic 3 Wire )

    Hope this helps!

    Take Care, Fly Safe!

    Thanks so very much. I have the Phantom2 with the H3-3D gimbal and GS as well as iosd-mini. I think I have like 5 connectors that need to go back on this thing.

    1. Cable from the gimbal (8-pin) plugs in to the only port on the mainboard that it fits.

    2. Canbus cable from iOSD mini plugs in to port on front leg.

    3. Canbus cable from GS air end plugs in to port on side of iOSD mini

    The rest of your wiring will depend on what video transmitter you have.

    Thanks,
    I am good on all of the connections you mentioned. My concern is the connectors that plug into the NAZA 2. This is where I need great clarity and detail as I don't want to blow anything that may not be blown! I did plug a battery into the unit today an turned it on. All the lights lit, the gimbal moved around as if to try to find center and the craft made a beeping sound. So, I guess it is not totally dead. Once I get the NAZA 2 plugged in properly, I can hook the Phantom2 up to my computer and run the PT2 software to see how it checks out.

    I cannot begin to thank you for taking time to send the pictures and explanation of connections. They were invaluable. I am pleased to report the Phantom started up, fly straight and the camera and gimbal worked like a champ. Your pictured and description made all the difference in the world.

    My pleasure,
    Always willing to help a fellow pilot
    Get back in the air! I'm so glad to hear
    It is back together and flying CORRECTLY!

    I personally HATE down time ( rain, wind,
    ( forgetting to charge batteries ) ect.) {:0)

    Luckily, I've not had anything more than a
    Slightly hard landing, no crashes, or such.

    Mostly bad weather, and stupidity, is my down
    Times! LOL

    If you ever run into any other issues, you know
    Where to find us! Feel free to keep in touch
    ANYTIME!

    Take care, Fly safe!
