    Hey everyone...

    After getting a Phantom asap after the release, been really enjoying it. Added DJI video FPV, carbon props, bearings, running current updates with no issues, etc etc

    All is good, used it nearly daily & had very good success. Few little issues both were my errors, once was I took off before proper start up & another took it out too far, then had little damage on rough landing because battery ran out of juice. Kept machine maintained properly, etc.

    OK... update to today, time for another ship.

    Bought NEW Phantom, Carbon Props w/ better bearings, Futaba T14SG, 5.8G 1000mW Transmitter & Receiver, PolarProFilter, Carbon GoPro Isolation mount.

    My problem is my footage now is very decent, and my skills are holding their own also. Fact is I keep hearing all these issues with Zenmuse & it bothers me some.

    Tomorrow I will begin the build, Zenmuse OR not is the question?? Also should I stay with screen or try goggles??

    I have it all here ready to go! (other than goggles)

    Thanks guys!!

    love my goggles.

    heard some people are doing just fine with their zenmuses,.. but of course, others are having issues.
    (same with other gimbals apparently).

    I've put together 2 Zenmuse / Phantoms. Both work great and the footage is fantastic. If I didn't read this forum every day I probably wouldn't know anyone was having problems.
