    Does anyone know if the 4k p3 camera will slot onto a p2v+ gimbal? Will the ribbon cable connector be the same? ( Im just talking about the camera itself that is slotted onto the rod poking out of the gimbal with 1 screw). If not the how about just swapping the lens from 1 circuit board to the other? I have the option to buy a 4k p3 complete camera and gimbal but the gimbal is damaged so i wondered if i could use part of it on my p2v+.

    To further clarify why I don't feel you should bother is as follows. The camera is meant to be used with and operated from the dji pilot app. The Phantom Vision uses a different app and is made to recognize and control a completely different camera and firmware. Also even if that wasn't an obstacle already the CA!era itself is a different size and weight than the Phantom Vision plus it would not be calibrated to function on it. If you want a 4k camera for your vision plus there are ways of using a zenmuse gimbal and gopro with it thogh you won't have manual camera control.

    Just buy a P3P. You won't regret it.

    It definitely won't work on the P2V+.

    It would be amazing if it did, but I'm guessing it's not that easy. I'd easily do it if it was possible though, any day of the week.
