    So if I've got a P2V with basically a hosed camera, and I'm wondering if it's possible to retrofit one with an H3-3D and a lightbridge. If not, why, specifically?

    I know that the control signal is not compatible @ 2.4Ghz, but I'd be completely blowing off the DJI controller and plugging in a 14SG. Since I already own a 14SG, what would I need other than a LightBridge and a gimbal? From what I *thought* I was reading, the LB plugs into the gimbal and the Naza on an vanilla P2, right? The control signal is then passed through the LB directly into the Naza, bypassing a dedicated receiver.

    Is there some difference between the Naza on a P2 and the Naza on a P2V that can't be overcome? What else is missing or incompatible?

    Thanks for any input!

    I can't see any reason why that would not work, especially since the two versions run the same firmware.
