    To the owners of DJI Phantom FPV Kit for HERO 3... Hopefully this will be voted the dumbest post of the year... because that would mean the solution is outrageously simple but here goes...

    I decided to assemble my FPV kit yesterday and what I thought would be the easiest part has proven an obstacle. I can't for the life of me figure out how to properly do the following: "Then remove allen bolt and set washer from bracket. Reattach with bracket on controller hook."

    This seems relatively easy on the video, It is easy to remove the bolt and the washer but to reattach... I and two others could not figure out how to reattach the bracket properly to the controller hook. We tried all possible combinations but it always slides to and fro and is not firmly attached. From the video the guy just seems to use the allen bolt to fasten bracket to the hook. I tried with the washer as well but could not make it work either.. Please help! I hope the solution is terribly simple and makes me embarassed... :)

    Here are images to go with this problem - is the bolt the right size? .. it does go through the hook and comes out on the other side threaded but it is seems too small to hold the controller hook on its own.

    btw... there is a screw attached to the controller hook that was not on my hook as it came out of the case. So could that make a difference although I do not see how that would help fasten the bracket to the hook itself?
