- wider landing gear
- simple gopro antijello mount
- Carbon props (better against vibration on video!)
- installed FrSky X8R receiver to use Taranis Radio
I wasted a whole morning trying to install EzUHF RX - only to learn that you have to use SBUS mode on the RX! That means you can only use Futaba RX or luckily a FrSky X8R I had laying around. It could be so easy: if you could alter the Transmitter mode in Assistant Software (like in "normal" Naza) from SBUS to PPM - you would be good to use any sum-signal outputting RX (including EzUHF for example). I hope DJI activates this setting sometimes in the Future!!!
You could of course swap the Phantom Naza FC with a "normal" NazaV2 FC - and you would be able to use any RX here you want (but that's a pricey option!).

Switch to NazaM mode instead of Phantom mode to enable some additional features!

My conclusion - the std. radio and the internal receiver are crap. They can be tricked by interfering signals (wifi,...) quite easily! I don't know any other 2.4 radio that is so sensitive...
GPS Antenna is fragile! / GPS reception issues!?!
If a newbie crashes his phantom (maybe because of a flyaway) the top mounted ceramic GPS antenna might get cracks and the reception of GPS satellites can be weak or even worse can be sporadic (sats dissapear while flying - flightcontroll is confused - tries to countersteer the sudden loss of position and goes crazy?)
I have a P2 here that had a crash and now the sat fix sometimes takes forever, sometimes it's here in a few seconds. I learned that if I fly in Atti Mode first, then after landing I could get GPS fix really fast.
Ultimately: I had serious problems getting GPS fix - even with new antenna! Only after removing the (somehow torn apart) protection foil copper thing it worked for me. Maybe the foil was giving a short circuit to the GPS antenna circuitboard? No Problems since than...

Flyaway discussions - good explanation
Broken GPS Antenna as cause for no GPS Fix (always 3 red blinks...)
