Hi,

Can someone tell me...


1. Is it possible to install the BT data link module in the vision plus v3 (i prefer the iPad Ground Station app to the DJI Vision app version).
2. If so is there anything I'll need other than the data link module kit itself (LK24-BT)?
3. Any step by step guides you know of for installing it? I've never opened my Phantom so I'm not sure if the required CAN bus port is available or whether I'd need to get some sort of adapter?


Any advise (or even not to do it) would be greatly appreciated.

I found some guides on YouTube. There is a $20 part you need in addition to the BT kit. I considered doing this but it is more than I really want to do to my P2V+. I hope that DJI will update their Ground Station app for the P2V+ since it does not need BT to send waypoints and there is currently no iPad app. Waypoints are limited to 500 meters in the Vision app but have as 2 KM range in Ground Station and there has been no credible reason for this limitation presented thus far.

I think I've found out the answer. Get the "DJI PHANTOM 2 CAN BUS CONNECTION MODULE" http://www.quadcopters.co.uk/dji ... n-module-1489-p.asp and plug the cable into the mini JST socket on the flight board marked "CAN".

You can then plug in the data link module externally and have the option of having it installed (for iPad/PC ground station) but with slightly less flight time due to the increase in weight or uninstalled if not needed.

I found this 3D printable external box to hold the data link which looked good http://www.123dapp.com/Project/Q ... DJI-Phantom/2511172
