from what I understand of it. the reason the license is required is because the band that we use for FPV were give to the amateur radio operators. basically is on there frequency range.
kinda wish I wouldn't have let my license expire.
but the posts are correct it isn't hard to get a...
I was looking at getting into an FPV system when I came across a disclaimer that states you don't need a license in the US to buy FPV but you need a license to use it. I see allot of posts about FPV and I am just wondering if this license is something I need or don't need?
I would hate to...
yeah I am. but it will have to wait till tomorrow to fly.
hooked something up backwards some place. tried to fly earlier today and it wouldn't take off.
finally started the motors, picked up the phantom and increased the throttle. found it was pushing itself down.
double checked and all...
even with out the upgrade board.
the gimbal should be hooked the f2 port on the naza.
from what I have read, the upgrade board just added the control cable for the zenmuse gimbal.
main mistake I made was not having the gimbal enabled in the naza
and as far as where to hook it up on the...
I GOT IT WORKING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I watched some more videos on youtube, talked to Gizmo3000 here.
took the videos advice, ran that black and white cable to the f2 port on the naza
from there to the left set of 3 prongs on the gimbal
enabled the gimbal in the naza and to my shock and surprize...
no I sure didn't.
from what it sounds like. the upgrade board I bought was for the zenmuse gimbal. doesn't sound like it will work with the gimbal I bought.
not sure how to hook it up.
although on the bright side. looks like I installed that upgrade board correct. phantom functions fine...
I don't have the futaba box in my phantom. mine is just a stock phantom. with the stock dji radio.
after some more digging through help videos and wiring directions
not exactly sure on which wire gets hooked to what.
but this is how I think it would have to be done.
the black and white wire...
I understand your confusion on how to connect this.
I purchased the phantom upgrade board
then I purchased a gimbal. looks like just about the exact same one as you have. only difference that I can see is that the power on my gimbal is run off of the balance port from the battery.
found a site that shows this as a battery upgrade for the phantom:
DJI Phantom Battery Upgrade Thunder Power RC 2700mAh 3S/3-Cell Lithium Polymer
has any one tried these? good idea or bad?
any info would...
I had the same problem with mine when I first got it last week.
upgraded to the 4.0 software before my first flight. did my advanced calibration.
was getting the continuous yellow flashing
finally corrected the problem by doing an advanced calibration from the naza assistant software for a...
as far as where to order: the best deal I could find last week was at helipal.com, they are in china so it did take a few days to get here. I ordered mine on the 12th and it got here today.
I only have one flight under my belt so I am definitely a novice with the phantom. but it was a joy to...
