phantom 2 / H3-2D FPV with hero3+

We just ordered a DJI-AVL58 transmitter & receiver kit for FPV with a gopro hero3+ in a Phantom 2 / zenmuse H3-2D combo. Is there something special (adapter) required to connect the hero 3+ to the transmitter ? ... any advice would be greatly appreciated before kit arrives......

Regards

I believe you need a cable like this: Airy GoPro HERO 3 Video Cable - HeliPal

There are other places to buy them, of course...

Re: phantom 2 / H3-2D FPV with hero3+

My understanding is the GoPro transmits video via the H3-2D gimbal, and the Phantom already has a video cable that just needs to be wired up to a transmitter.

Personally I have mine setup with the cable linked above, which connects directly to a 5.8GHz transmitter. So you've got a couple of different options.

Just curious, how well does the FPV work? Bright Sun? Interference? Loss of signal? Are any of these issues to be concerned about.

All of those issues are factors. It really depends on the quality of the equipment. If you buy a decent transmitter, quality antennas and receivers, you should easily get 500-1000 metres of distance without significant signal loss.
