    I have a Phantom 2. Which GoPro is compatible with it? I was looking at used GoPro Hero 4 but not sure if I need that or a Hero 3? Which is compatible

    The P2 3D H3 and H4 are compatible. I would suggest the H4 as it has more functions.

    HX = X denotes the Gopro Hero Series
    H3 was made for the Hero3 and H4 was made for the Hero4.

    There is 4 variants in the Zenmuse Gopro gimbal range.
    H3-2D is a 2 axis with 30pin rear port (obsolete - new remotes with side tilt dial may not work on newer firmware).
    H3-3D 1.0 is a 3 axis with 30pin rear port
    H3-3D 1.1 is a 3 axis with side USB
    H4-3D is a 3 axis with side USB

    You can use a H3-3D 1.0 and 1.1 with a Hero4 with slight modifications.
    Both 1.0 and 1.1 require neutral balancing (use a coin).
    Both will need the padded tape for the wifi button clearance (stops it activating in mid air).
    If you want to use the GoPro H3-3D 1.0 via the rear 30pin port, find an LCD bacpac and playback a file on the gopro. This will activate the rear port.

    The H4-3D uses the same hardware as the H3-3D. The only difference is that its balanced/weight for the Hero 4 and have made more clearance for the Hero4 side button.
