*IMPORTANT WARNINGS*

PLEASE READ ALL WARNING CAREFULLY BEFORE INSTALLATION

  • Before each flight, use the provided tools to verify that all screws in the gimbal are firmly tightened. This should be incorporated into your normal pre-flight checklist.
  • NEVER power the gimbal *without* the Vision camera installed. Doing so can cause damage to the motors, which is not covered by warranty.
  • NEVER plug in the vision camera cable while the Phantom 2 Vision is powered up! This can cause permanent damage to the camera and/or internal components of the P2V. 
  • NEVER disconnect/connect any other cables to/from the FC200/gimbal control board/IMU while the system is powered up.
  • When using filters on the FC200, precisely balance the camera before powering the system up. Go to www.rotorpixel.com/resources for detailed instructions. 
  • The live video feed may temporarily stall due to the pitch motor partially blocking one of the camera's antennas. It is recommended to always use a spotter to track the P2V's location, or to keep the P2V within your line of sight at all times.
  • If the live video feed temporarily stalls, all wifi functions will remain in operation (start/stop recording, photos, camera tilt, image review, etc.). Press the "back" button, then re-enter the camera, and the live feed will usually be restarted. (Unless you’re out of range)

1. Connect the P2V to the assistant software via micro USB cable (provided by DJI with your P2V).
2. Under the "Advanced" heading, in the "Gimbal" tab, enter "0" into the "Pitch: Gain" box, then press enter.
3. In the "Servo Travel Limit" section, enter "-450" into the "Pitch: Center" box, then press enter.
4. Disconnect the P2V from the computer, and turn off power.
5. Detach the lower vibration damping plate (with camera connected) from the 4 vibration damping balls.
6. Disconnect the pitch control cable coming from the underside of the P2V.
7. Pull away the small rubber insert on one of the "ears" of the FC200 camera.
8. Unscrew and remove the single Phillips screw.
9. Remove the small hard plastic servo transmission block from the inside of the “ear”.
10. Carefully remove the camera.
11. Install the camera in the Rotorpixel FC200 camera mount.
12. Insert the small white spacer into one of the "ears" of the camera.
13. Install and tighten the black thumbscrew into the ear, through the spacer.
14. Connect the pitch control cable from the underside of the P2V to the single free cable coming from the gimbal control board.
15. Connect the lower section of each white damping ball to the metal vibration isolation plate.
16. Insert the black rubber nuts into the top hole of each vibration damping ball (use an allen key provided, as an insertion tool, if necessary)
17. Insert white thumbscrews, and screw in 6-8 revolutions, ensuring that the metal damping plate is seated against the white thumbscrew. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN.
18. Plug in the standard white cable coming from the P2V into the mating receptacle on the gimbal control board.
19. Plug in the thin white cable coming from the gimbal control board, into the back of the FC200 camera, ensuring that it is inserted all the way, and in an orientation that sends the cable upward and slightly to the left (from the camera's perspective).
20. Keep the gimbal motionless for at least 5 seconds after turning on the P2V.
