DJI FPV Transmitter cable modified for GOPRO3 black

Postby Meettyrone » Tue Aug 27, 2013 7:12 am

hi guys
just wondering if i can get some help on the right 'cable' to buy?

basicly, i bought a few things so i can hook up my Gopro3 black and use it as FPV. as its my first time, i bought the wrong downlink system. well, technically its not wrong, but i should have bought the modified version from helipal (as its got the right cables and its all setup plug and play).

so this is what i bought... from ebay
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/DJI-5-8GHZ-V ... 1e7d4c944e

i realise i should have get this DJI downlink setup instead. as the Gopro and power connection cables have already modified.
http://www.helipal.com/dji-avl58-fpv-sy ... tenna.html
(it can connect to Gopro3, and use phantom battery to power the transmitter)

i like to know if i can get a replacement transmitter cable somewhere?

many thanks!

Does Helipal sell just the cable on its own? I did get my full setup from them and I know they sell the Hero3 cable but that is the last part that connects to the main cable so you would still need the main cable to connect the hero3 cable to. If you get in contact with them they may be able to sell you just the cables you need as I didn't see that on their site separately.

Yeh. I have already email them regarding the issue. I really hope I can get that cable.
Didn't see it selling on their site either. :(
And I have already bought gopro3 connecting cable.

maybe I might need to pay someone to modify my existing cable.

Stumbled into this thread because I have the same problem. The cable doesn't seem to allow me to connect to the go pro, was this resolved? Can't seem to email the original poster

All you needed to do was buy this and make the other end a JST female

Seems like there should be a more elegant solution that doesn't require a total of three different cables just to connect the Tx to a GoPro?

Which gopro cable did you use with the new helipad setup? Looks like most gopro cables I have seen have a servo type connection instead of what the photo looks like (a 3s power connection?)
