  1. When I power up my P2, the GoPro "on" light illuminates. Is there a reason why?
  2. Is my GoPro camera receiving power from the P2 via the cable I plug in to the port ?
  3. Why does the gimbal respond to the yaw stick commands. It is probably supposed to move, but why do you need it when the copter yaws?
Thanks in advance

3. It looks a bit weird when it's standing still but that's how you get the smooth video - the gimbal responding immediately to the movement of the Phantom.

The cable supplies power to your GoPro which is why the red light comes on - it's the equivalent of plugging your battery charger in.

I thought that might be the reason. Thank you!

I kinda guessed at that. Thanks for the confirmation. So if my GoPro battery is low, it won't matter with it plugged in? Nice to know. I probably want a fully charged GoPro battery as to not put any further load on my P2's battery. Thank you!
