Yes you can fly a P4P without a gimbal, but ONLY if it has been previously linked.

The link button is on the gimbal.

Am a retiree that can only afford the quad if I buy it used and decided to buy separate quad, battery and controller (as I found bargain prices), and learn to fly while saving the money for a gimbal.

Should have watched more videos, I guess.

Link button on the P4P is not on the gimbal it is on the port side next to the SD card slot. Should link fine without the gimbal.
P3’s are on the gimble.

When I say gimbal I am referring to the gimbal/camera assembly, which when sold includes the lower quad cover.

I understand, TRY TED. Might try aliExpress from China but might take a month. Good luck.

The cover I saw on eBay sold.
I will probably end up using some of that stimulus money, we are supposed to be getting, and buy a broken gimbal/camera assembly, then repair it.
Maybe in another month I will have something to fly.....sigh....LOL

Gotcha.
Thought you meant that he had an online store or something similar.

Well...I assume you mean gimbal assembly, which includes the controller and other bits that are not actually the gimbal.



The link button is on the gimbal.
It's not. It's on the gimbal *assembly,* which is the controller for the gimbal. The button is not on the gimbal.

Sounds like a good plan. I see nothing wrong with this plan. As long as you know how to connect the gimbal assembly to the hull, you should be good.

Perhaps.
