Phantom 2-Phantom 2 Aircraft
PHANTOM 2 Aircraft
Built-in Flight Control System Instructions
The built-in flight control system is used to control the entire aircraft’s functions in flight such as Pitch (forwards and backwards), Roll (left and right), Elevator (up and down) and Yaw (turn left or right). The flight controller contains the MC (Main Controller), IMU, GPS, compass, receiver.
The IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) has a built-in inertial sensor and a barometric altimeter that measures both attitude and altitude. The compass reads geomagnetic information which assists the GPS (Global Position System) to accurately calculate the aircrafts position and height in order to lock the aircraft in a stable hover. The receiver is used to communicate with the remote controller and the MC acts as the brains of the complete flight control system connecting and controlling all the modules together.
The PHANTOM 2 can be configured in the Assistant software, by choosing Naza-M mode or Phantom 2 mode. This manual is for Phantom 2 mode. Please refer to the Naza-MV2 Quick Start Manual for more information.
Connections with Other DJI Products
PHANTOM 2 is compatible with other DJI products, including ZENMUSE H3-2D gimbal，，ZENMUSE H3-3D gimbal，iOSD mini，iOSD Mark II and wireless video transmission module. Below are connections for these products.
- （1）The video cable can provide power for the wireless video transmission module with a battery voltage (11.1V~12.6V) and a maximum current 2A.
- （2）Make sure the working current of the wireless video transmission module you connect can work with an operational voltage between 11.1V~12.6V and the total working current of the iOSD and wireless video transmission module is under 2A, as an overcurrent will damage the central board’s components. If the total current exceeds 2A, please be sure to provide power supplied from a separate power source for the wireless video transmission module.
- （3）PHANTOM 2 uses a 2.4GHz RC system. To avoid communication interference, it’s not recommended to use other 2.4GHz devices (including 2.4G wifi or 2.4G wireless video transmission module) except the 2.4G Bluetooth and 2.4G Datalink.
（1）Connecting the H3-2D gimbal and wireless video transmission module
（2）Connecting the H3-2D gimbal, iOSD Mini and DJI specified wireless video transmission module AVL58
（3）Connecting the H3-2D gimbal, iOSD Mark II and wireless video transmission module
The diagram below illustrates the conneciton between the iOSD Mark II and the wireless video transmission module.
- （1）Use the 8-Pin cable in the iOSD Markk II package when connecting to the DJI specified wireless video transmission module (AVL58).
LED Flight Indicators Description
1.LED flight indicators are used to show the aircraft’s current status. Once powered on, the indicators will light up.
- （1）The LED indicators diagram above are for Phantom 2 mode. In Naza-M mode, LED indicators will work according to the Naza-M flight control system.
- （2）Connect to the PHANTOM 2 Assistant software for detailed information about warnings and errors.
2.The front LEDs are for indicating where the nose of the aircraft is. They light up solid red only after the motors have spooled up.
