Connecting the Walkera G-2D to a Dji Phantom 1 quadcopter

by admin

For the most part, this article will focus on the Walkera G-2D, which provides smooth footage on a GoPro and similar cameras from any quadcopter. In particular, it can also be installed on the most popular inexpensive models with GPS: Cheerson CX-20 , WlToys v303 and of course to the Dji Phantom 1, about a detailed connection to which I will tell in this article. It’s worth noting that the suspension installed is the lightest and most inexpensive solution on the market. All in all for 74.35$ we get a quality picture from the air, and due to the light weight, the flight time will be longer than with the well-known suspenders from Tarot or DJI.

So, the suspension itself comes to us already assembled in a small box. There is no sense to describe inboxing in detail, I will only say, that the hanger is packed safely and when you open the box you will understand what’s what.

To connect above you need the suspension itself, the quadcopter, a hexagon (the suspension kit turned out to be the right one to disassemble the phantom) and a small Phillips screwdriver.

First of all, in the box of the quadcopter we find bolts and a small elongated part, which attaches to our quadcopter. Screw it into the standard 2 holes, and then you can put the suspension on it. It just clicks into place.

Next comes the fun part. We have to :
1. Remove the cover in the phantom
2. Connect the power supply
3. Connect to nase

Remove the cover in the phantom

There’s nothing to be scared of here, eyes are afraid and hands are doing the work. Unscrew the bolts on the phantom. Four on each beam. Some with a screwdriver and some with an allen key.

Turn the phantom over and carefully remove the cover, watching out for the wires that reach into it.

Connect power

Take the power cord out of the box and plug one end of it into the pendant.

There are 2 special wires already coming out of the copter to connect the pendant, which you just have to find and take out through the leg.

Next, you need to somehow connect the wires from the copter to the wire from the hanger. You can do it elegantly by attaching connectors, or you can just tie them up and tape them down (or tape for now, if you don’t have any tape).

The most exciting part will be the connection to the controller, as you probably won’t have enough wire length here. However, you can always find a way out. In the box of the hanger there are 2 wires to connect to the hanger for some reason, so I just made one of them, but twice as long. This length was long enough to connect through the shortest distance I could find, but of course you have to take this wire out through a leg as well.
In the pendant, the wire must be connected to the "pit" connector.

And in the controller you need the F2 input.

All that’s left is to screw the cover back on, insert the camera into the suspension to achieve the desired weight, connect the battery and enjoy the result.
The tilting is done with an additional joystick for the remote control on channel 7, which must be enabled in the system settings called.
That’s all, have a good flight, and good luck with your gadget selection service Dronk.Ru
