    I flew my Phantom for the first time last night, and I when I watched my gopro2 footage (set on R4- 960 - tall and narrow) there are a number of angles where the landing gear are still in view of the camera. I would like to fly the helicopter without the landing gear, but I don't know if the Atti modes will operate properly if I disconnect the wire to the metal compass that is located on one of the landing gear legs.

    Is there an internal compass that functions when the landing gear one is not present or should I relocate the metal compass to the bottom of the body in absense of the landing gear?

    Thanks for any opinions or advice!

    I've seen some videos from the Phantom but I didn't see the landing gear, perhaps you could change the video setting on the GoPro?

    Also, I wouldn't detach any wires, I'm sure the Naza needs that Compass.
