    I have some question about walkera g2d gimbal en boscam fpv. I have 3 questions and maybe someone knows them:
    1) How do I power the gimbal? I know the aux cable, which is 11.1v right? Can that be connected with jst plug straight to the gimbal?
    2) I also bought the boscam ts321 and rc302 fpv. It's on 2.4G (i need that because i have the 5.8G FC40). Can i power the transmitter with the same cable?
    3) And can i power the receiver (rc302) with a 3s lipo?

    This is the boscam i bought:

    I hope someone can help with this.

    1) Yes you can use the aux cable to power the gimbal
    2) Yes you can also use the same cable to power the TS321
    3) Not sure, I have the RC805, but I use a 450MaH 2s LiPo (It was 1/3 the price)
    I get about a hours worth of use out of it.

    Hope this helps.

    I have basically the same setup here (and here is +31)

    FC40 guts in a Phantom2 shell (bad crash, broke the original shell).

    You can power both the gimbal and the transmitter with the aux power cable.
    And you can power the receiver with a 3s lipo. I run both the receiver and a 7 inch tft off one. I've soldered the powerlead that comes with the receiver to a xt60 splitter cable so i can connect the lipo to both the screen and the receiver.
