    Hi guys, was reading the boards and was just simply wondering the following, for those that have a busted gimbal and camera.

    Would it be possible to just do the following (assuming they have the money :) )
    1. replace the entire gimbal with an H3-3D or maybe one of those cheaper 3 way gimbals
    2. Use a Gopro

    and if they want to return to having FPV

    3. Change the Radio Controller to a 2.4Ghz controller
    4. Purchase a 2.4ghz transmitter.
    5. Add all the FPV gadgets...

    I guess its a pretty expensive option...probably looking at around 1k in parts (price of a whole phantom 3d)...but if you possibly have some or most of the parts..or can possibly source them cheaply...would it be doable?

    Use the same frequency for both control and FPV?
