    Unless the phantom has full physical optic zoom, You will lose quality as it will most likely be digitally zoomed.
    Your best bet would be narrow field 1080 or changing to (an expensive) 5.4mm.

    Most people find it difficult enough to fly let alone zooming and tilting. Lets hold off until optic zoom is available and an additional ch8 knob is added.

    i was looking for this too!
    but maybe planning to do a optical zoom
    http://www.m12lenses.com/2-8-12mm-F1-4- ... 02812a.htm

    and control it with the 8th back channel on the remote

    its just an idea!
    but maybe its possible to make this fit on the standard camera

    i only hope its not to heavy and the gimbal will still work!

    maybe sombody have a simmilar idea??

    Your field of view with this camera is way too small. Max is 92 while I believe stock camera is 140 degrees.
    There are other similar lenses but they are not matched to the CCD of the P2V+, and the latter also does not have the mechanical mount required.

    yeah i know, im still looking for something to make this work, maybe you already seen something?
    in like 2 months i get my own 3d printer and hope to fix the mechanical mount problem.
    but ofcourse still there will be a weight problem on the gimbal
    and i wonder if this even possible.
    like for the gopro i also not seen a servo drive optical zoom lens
    but that would be assome he!!
