Been a while since I've posted here but I've got a question.

I have the Phantom 2 (original version) with Zenmuse H3-3D Gimbal.
I wanted to upgrade the compass to the newer Ant-Static (enclosed) version. I saw 2 versions. Part # 16 (Phantom 2/ Phantom 2 Vision) and Part # 18 ( Phantom 2 Vision +)
Part #16 uses the regular height Landing Skids. These suck if you have a filter on your GoPro or a longer VTX Antenna.
Part # 18 uses slightly taller Landing Skids which give more clearance. I wanted the taller Skids and the dealer said I can use Part #18 on my Phantom 2.

Now I see online that Part #18 is for the Vision + Only!! So that must mean that the Compass is different between the P2/P2V and the P2V+?
So I cannot use that one?

Nope it's the same only the #18 is 3/8 of an inch taller other then that it's the same compass.  All you need to do is get the landing gear for the other side the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Part 04 Landing Gear and you get 3/8 inch taller. The only thing is it only come in a set of 2 so you have to buy 2 of them but you will have a spare if you ever need it.

I know because I did it I ordered the part #18 by mistake so I just ordered #04

I put the Vision plus gear on my Phantom 2 Version 2.0.  I did get a little benefit of the taller gear.

But what about the length of the compass cable. Is it long enough to reach the compass port on the Phantom 2?

I did install the Compass Part# 18 on my P2 non vision.  I already had a few of the DJI longer landing skids so I used one of those on the other side.
The Compass calibrated fine and the copter flew fine.   No Problem at all..
