    TBS Unify Pro 5.8 HV with Core Pro and 12v cam

    For me to logically figure this out I need to be able to draw it out on paper or picture it in my mind...

    Please tell me if this is correct;

    The Core PNP Pro gets it's 5v from the current sensor through the BST cable, the Blackbox get's it's power from the core through another BST cable, the NAZA and GPS gets it's power from the Blackbox. I have the Core PNP Pro setup for 12v cam (zerozero) and 12v video transmitter. And here is where I get stumped. On page 11 of the Unify manual it says: The UNIFY PRO 5G8 HV comes with wires ready to be assembled into your own projects. Should you want to connect it to TBS products such as the TBS CORE , TBS CORE PNP PRO, PNP25/PNP50, etc, you will need to modify the camera pin-out to match the UNIFY VTx input socket. You will also need to remove the red wire (5V) from the connector, to avoid voltage supplies fighting each other.

    you will need to modify the camera pin-out to match the UNIFY VTx input socket - Please clarify this!!! Do I plug the camera into the Core or VTx?

    You will also need to remove the red wire (5V) from the connector, to avoid voltage supplies fighting each other - Do I need to power the VTx directly from the battery?

    I'm sure there is a simple answer for this and I'm looking at it totally wrong,

    Does the Core PNP Pro power the Unify HV?

    I'm going with this, inputs and outputs should be correct. Took the red 5v out and put it in the 7v-26v in. And reconfigured the wires going to the core pro to match.

    Just in case someone comes across this same situation, the previous picture is the correct wiring. Verified by TBS.

    Naza will get power from the LiPo power source.
