DJI Phantom Installation

What You Need

To get started you will need your Phantom quadcopter, your Flytrex Core and the Flytrex Phantom Cable. Make sure you order the Flytrex Phantom Cable when ordering your Flytrex if you plan to mount it on a Phantom quadcopter. You will find an option to add it when ordering your Flytrex.

Open Your Phantom

Carefully open your Phantom shell and disconnect the GPS cable from the Naza EXP slot. Opening the Phantom is beyond the scope of this manual but you can find plenty of online manuals showing how to open it up.

Connect Flytrex Cable to Naza

The Flytrex Phantom Cable is a special Y shaped cable with 3 connectors. One of the cable sides includes two connectors: male and female. Connect the male connector on this side of the cable to the Naza EXP slot, instead of the GPS we disconnected earlier.

Connect GPS to Flytrex Cable

Now connect the GPS cable we initially disconnected from the Naza to the female connector in the Flytrex Phantom Cable on the same side of the cable.

Flytrex Cable In Place

At this stage, the Flytrex Phantom Cable should be connected to your Naza EXP slot and the Phantom GPS cable is connected to the Flytrex Phantom Cable female slot. The single long side of the Flytrex Phantom Cable is not connected yet.

Flytrex Cable Wiring

Take the longer end of the Flytrex Phantom Cable and pass it below the Phantom main board and to the outer side of the Phantom shell, going through the battery compartment door.

Connect Flytrex Core

Now that we've got the cable connected in the inside and wired to the outer part, close your Phantom shell. Make sure the cable is nicely placed inside the Phantom when closing it. Now connect Flytrex Core to the remaining cable slot at the outside of the Phantom. You can connect the cable to either slot of the two available in Flytrex Core. The remaining slot should remain empty.

Mount Flytrex Core

Mount Flytrex Core to one of the sides of your Phantom using two-sided Scotch tape or similar. We suggest mounting it on one of the side, but you can try different mounting options as well, depending on your own setup. Since Flytrex includes sensors that are sensitive to direct sunlight we suggest mounting it to the sides or facing down and not at the top of the Phantom, although it will still work well.

Its All Set

That's it! Before flying remember to place a microSD inside your Flytrex and you're ready to go. We'd love to see your flights and feedback - have fun and fly safely!
