    Hey guys how's it going?
    So here is my situation, a buddy snagged a giant branch that tore his gimbal and camera apart in the p3a, given the situation he parted out the camera, batt and tx and sold them. The main aircraft sat for months and he decided to pass it to me for experimental use.

    After binding it with my tx and tinkering with it, i managed to install my old G-2D gimbal on it for my gopro. Everything works fine just for LOS flying and recording.

    My question is does anyone out there know the cable mapping on the gray flexes so i can try to see if i can at least get the gimbal to tilt....or even better...where the video signal is to feed the gopro vid to the lightbridge downlink.

    Im not about to drop $400 for a new camera assembly unless someone has a spare one for sale cheap, but if it is not possible to do then im ok with the current setup just for proximity recording.

    Thanks all! ImageUploadedByPhantomPilots1467308463.006574.jpg
