    Thanks for your reply. Out of range shouldn't be a problem I think, the RTH from the Phantom works really good. Only problem indeed is the voltage monitoring, so the OSD needs to come as quickly as possible.

    Already did a short testflight with the Fatshark cam, couldn't wait any longer

    First impressions are positive + a whole new world opens before my eyes
    Now even more curious about using the GoPro as FPV-cam with the tilt function on the gimbal...

    Let me know how that works out for you, I tried one it was tough to get into the case and didn't really add any appreciable flight time so I sent it back for a refund.

    GoPro as flight cam is not good idea. GoPro on gimbal as flight cam is easy recipe to kill your Phantom. Got your ham license yet?

    Why is that? A cam is a cam (and the GoPro is even a better cam than the Fatshark)?

    No ham license, why would I need one?

    Technically it is a workaround allowing you to use non-part 15 compliant FPV and control radios.

    Anyhow this is the setup I have, no gimble but it works well.

    Krueger - with all due respect, your attitude stinks and you clearly have much to learn. If you think GoPro and gimbal are a great idea for multirotor flight cam - go try it. Otherwise, do yourself a favor and learn a little. At least you've come to the right place.

    What's the problem with a GoPro as a flight cam? And because I asked does that give me a attitude that stinks?

    And as for a Ham license is anybody really watching or caring if one has one?
