Hi!

After a not so short period, I'm back here. More than that, I'm a happy owner of ProAction grip with a CGO4. Of course, I have some questions.

1. On the phone I see two WiFi AP's. One is CGO4_xxxxxx and the other is Yuneec_A100x. Something like this, don't want to take the camera from the case one more time right now. When I'm connecting to the Yuneec... with the password 1....0 I get a connection and can operate with the camera via the phone's application CGO4. If I try to connect to the CGO4... I get nothing and the network stays "saved" in the list. For what is the second access point?

2. As I understood from the previous topics, related to this stuff, there are two models of the gimbals and cameras, one is for 920, other is for 920+. How to recognize what I have?

3. In the forum I see some pictures related to the gimbal connector. On one of them, the pins are marked as PWM, on another as UART. What is the truth?

4. Can H480 lift this camera with the gimbal?

Further will be more, but due to a lot of missed work, for now, the questions are enough.

My camera is for the 920+ model. It cannot be lifted by an H480. The H920 can lift it but with reduced flight time. I have only used to app for the camera view and used the Pro grip for control.
I'm uncertain about the 2 versions of the CGO4. One thread mentioned the rf board was changed and the antennas were extended outside the camera. But I can't verify that to be true.

The CGO4 for the H920+ has the antennas invisibly relocated to the inside.
The CGO4 for the H920 has visible antennas... two white threads sticking out of the fan slots.

One more question. On the right hand is placed a small joystick. It has a push button too. What is the function of it? Tried to press but got nothing visible.

I first thought it was to trigger photos or videos, rather than on the phone screen... but it has kleider no function.

I believe that it is the other way around. The CGO4 configured for the H920Plus has the external wire antennas. See attached photo of a H920Plus configured CGO4. 4BECBDCA-1697-453B-919E-4AEDC8042C8A.jpeg

Yes, I have had the manual from a long time. I read before decide to buy something.

Yuneec manuals are very far from the perfection...

Probably by firmware version we can separate more clearly what is what?

Importance here is because I'm looking for 920 for spares or repair to investigate the communication between the drone and the gimbal. I'll be not so happy if I bought a wrong hardware for my camera. Cameras are rare, so no way to buy one more with antennas outside.

In the manual, about the charging current, is mentioned 2.6A for a battery with 2600 mAh capacity. Can someone confirm is this accurate? 0.75C should be better or doesn't matter?

All lipo's and lithium based batteries can be charged at 1C (means 1x battery capacity, in your case 2,6A are 2600mA).
From my experience, charging at 0,5C is the best way to increase battery life and avoid overheating, puffing etc.
I've batteries that are 4 years old still in perfect conditions.
Of course, the charging time will be longer.

Just tested with the ST16 and it works fine.

For what is the wire (antenna) on the top of the Proaction gimbal electronics?
Inside looks like the SR24 is present?! 16187512949111890636255.jpg
See the picture...

Done! This is an SR24. Can bound it as aircraft. Tilt and pan works from the ST16. I'm happy ;) No reason to analyze the protocol on the Proaction side. Only the question, which is still without answer is about the GPS dats in the EXIF.
