If your looking at the Iphone for Video then I would go with the DJI Vision ... Everything is built into it! I think the Video from the DJI Camera is better than the GoPro .

Thanks Tim, only problem is you can not run a gimbal on the vision, and I feel the vision 2 is just more flexible?

DJI is going to release an FPV Hub Kit for​Phantom 2!

PHANTOM 2 FPV HUB kit contains only cables and the FPV HUB to make connections convenient, easy and thus removing the need to do soldering when connecting them to a iOSD mini,iOSD Mark II or a DJI specified wireless video transmission module AVL58. Only 4 cables require soldering if users opt to use a wireless video transmission that’s not specified by DJI.

Connections
Choose devices collocation used with FPV-HUB according to required functions.

For wireless video transmission, the ALV58 is recommended for easy connection, using a HUB-AVL58 cable.

Collocation 1: Wireless video transmission module connected

1)Stop the Micro switch at VID position if only wireless video transmission module is connected to the FPV HUB.
2)Wireless video transmission module is an alternative to AVL58 or others unspecified. If using the AVL58, connect it to the FPV HUB via HUB-AVL58 cable. If using other wireless video transmission module, connect it to the FPV HUB via HUB-VTX cable according to pins description of the HUB-VTX cable.

Collocation 2&3: iOSD mini/iOSD MARK II and video transmission module connected

1)It’s alternative to use iOSD mini or iOSD Mark II.
2)Stop the Micro switch at OSD position when iOSD is connected to the FPV HUB.
3)Please refer to Collocation1 to connect the wireless video transmission module.

Notes:
(1)If using the FPV HUB, the original 4-Pin cable and video cable on PHANTOM 2 will be spared, please remove and clear them out. Make sure the video cable is totally cleared without any copper wire left to prevent short circuit damage.
(2)All connection operations should be conducted when the intelligent battery is powered off.
(3)Check whether pins of the connectors on the FPV HUB are straight and in good condition before connecting. Pls plug and unplug the connector carefully to avoid damage or short circuit.
(4)It’s not recommended to install the FPV HUB and extended devices inside the PHANTOM 2 aircraft.
(5)Make sure to install the AVL58 away from the compass to avoid interference.
(6)FPV HUB is non water-proof, if it is wet, please wash it with alcoholic cleanser and dry it before use. Otherwise components may be damaged cause of electrochemical corrosion.
(7)Do not leak any metal, conductive objects into the connector pins of FPV HUB to prevent short circuit damage.
(8)It’s not recommended to use cables not in the kit to connect devices to avoid unexpected damage.
(9)Make sure the connection is correct when using non-DJI recommended wireless video transmission module.
Tips:
(1)FPV HUB has a resettable fuse for over circuit precaution. The fuse will automatically open if the working current of power consuming devices (except DJI Zenmuse series) goes over 2A or if VCC and GND short circuited to prevent damage. After the short circuit trouble issued or the over current load is removed, turn off the power of the intelligent battery, the fuse will recover after 10secs.
(2)A component will be damaged if PHANTOM 2 has been short circuit once. In this condition, users still can use the FPV HUB and make the PHANTOM 2 work well again, ignoring the damaged component.
