    Hello everyone,

    a while back I had a stupid mishap with my H3-3D and Phantom 2. Long story short, I was too eager to test something and as a result, a couple of stripped wires crossed. Cue a puff of smoke and one dead H3-3D. Yes, I'm an idiot, no need to rub it in.

    Remarkably enough the Phantom 2 was undamaged and flies like new. I purchased a new H3-3D and was just about to install it when internal warning bells went off. What if the short damaged P2 motherboard in such a way that it will fry the new H3-3D?

    For peace of mind I would like to measure pins of the ZENMUSE connector on P2 motherboard, to see that it outputs the voltages it's supposed to. I asked DJI Tech Support for the pinout of that connector, and unsurprisingly, they were unable or unwilling to help.

    So, would anyone here have that pinout? I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    I've been searching for the pinouts on that connector for quite some time, no luck so far :(

    As DJI's Support is not helping I thought sod it, let's see what the pins push out when the power's on. I hope this helps someone.

    pin: voltage

    8: 0v
    7: 0v
    6: 12.3v
    5: 12.3v
    4: ground (0v)
    3: ground (0v)
    2: 2.3v
    1: 2.3v

    ---- edge of motherboard -----
    battery door
