Aerial Gadgets Technology By Nick / 15th February 2015 Share Tweet Share Does the DJI Phantom 2 Charge the Go Pro?Can the Phantom 2 or Zenmuse H3 3D gimbal charge the Go Pro battery in flight?Being new to flying UAV's, I was worried about the battery life of the Go Pro HD Hero 4. Especially whilst out flying and filming with the DJI Phantom 2.I have spare batteries for the Phantom 2 meaning I could fly for an hour or more. However, the Go Pro, with a run time of around 50-60 minutes or less won't always last that long. Especially at higher frame rates etc so it is a pain to remove once installed into the Zenmuse H3 3D gimbal.This also makes battery changes difficult and lengthy.After my flying for around 50 minutes, I noticed that the Go Pro HD Hero 4's battery was still full. This was whilst filming at various resolutions from 1080p HD to 4K video, I was surprised.The connector from the Zenmuse gimbal to enable video link etc goes into the USB port of the Go Pro. This is where you normally charge the camera so I guess this also charges the Go Pro in flight from the battery of the DJI Phantom 2!Bonus.This is a big deal for me because having to take off the Go Pro just to replace the battery would have been a real pain. Happy days.
