With the DJI Phantom 2 Bundle with H4-3D Gimbal, FPV Monitor, iOSD and Hard Case put together by B&H you'll be ready to start capturing aerial with a GoPro HERO4, HERO3+, or HERO3 action camera (available separately). The gimbal, video transmission system, and iOSD module are pre-installed by B&H so you won't have to worry about splicing wires or soldering cable.
At the center of this bundle is the Phantom 2 Quadcopter, a four-rotor remote control helicopter designed to act as an aerial platform for a GoPro HERO action camera. It features self-tightening propellers, a slot-in battery with LED indicators visible during flight, and includes a 2.4 GHz hand-held radio controller (transmitter) that is pre-bound to the aircraft and has a range of up to 3,280' line-of-sight, depending on conditions.
The Zenmuse H4-3D Gimbal is used mount the GoPro HERO on the Phantom 2. It is optimized for the HERO4, but will also work with the HERO3+ and HERO3 models (naked camera only). The GCU (gimbal control unit) is built into the Phantom 2 so there is no additional internal hardware to install and operation is plug-and-play. Adjustments and firmware updates can be made using the assistant software for Windows, which is downloadable from DJI.
To give you the first-person view (FPV) experience, the AVL58 5.8 GHz Video Link Kit and a 7" LCD field monitor with built-in 5.8 GHz receiver are included. The monitor can receive signals at distances up to 1.2 miles line-of-sight – depending on conditions and the transmitter used. Unlike other monitors – which use digital processing – the screen won't go blue or black when the signal gets weak; you'll still see a little "snow" and be able to see parts of your image rather than a complete loss. It can power from either Sony L-series or Canon LP-E6 type batteries. A battery and charger for the monitor are included.
The iOSD module takes heading, altitude, GPS coordinate, horizontal and vertical speed, and other data from the Phantom 2's flight computer and superimposes it over the image sent back to the video receiver at the ground end. Not only will be you be able to see what your GoPro sees, but also know exactly how the Phantom 2 is flying.
Finally, a hard case is included to safely store and transport your Phantom 2 and accessories in.
Note: This kit is pre-modified by B&H specialists before shipping to ensure proper and synchronized operation. These alterations may include, but are not limited to, soldering, resoldering, updating software and more. Also note, some of the accessories in this bundle may include parts not required for this particular installation. These parts have been left in the box as they could be useful if you ever decide to re-purpose any of the hardware for future applications.
Warning: Never use the DJI Phantom 2 Quadcopter with your GoPro camera when both devices have their Wi-Fi systems turned on. The DJI Phantom 2's radio controller and the GoPro HERO4's Wi-Fi run on the same frequency, so if you use them together when both Wi-Fi systems are engaged, the DJI Phantom's transmitter will lose the ability to communicate with the DJI Phantom Quadcopter. Whenever this happens, you will not be able to tell the Phantom where to fly. This may result in loss of property or damage to your equipment.
