    My camera is in the shop getting repaired. Can I fly without the camera and will it only be in atti mode? I do not show any satellites when I start it up without the camera.

    You can still fly in GPS mode but you lose all wifi when the gimbal is removed

    Yes you can fly without the camera installed and you'll still have full GPS mode available however you won't have the telemetry and the app will not connect without the gimbal installed so know your LED indicator codes :). Also a compass calibration is needed since magnetic distortions change with the gimbal/camera assembly missing.

    The reduced weight makes a big difference even without the 9450 Props
