Does anyone have the pinouts for the CGO3+ Gimbal/Camera? Also has anyone graphed a third party gimbal onto the "H"? Thanks in advance!

The 6 pin's between the copter and gimbal.
The six pins are duplicates so there are three wires. Pos, Neg and signal to the gimbal. Crude drawing :). Don't short across when testing. If you do, a fuse will blow on the main board in the H which is very difficult to replace.

Many thanks! So assume that the PWM (if that is what it is controls all three axis of the gimbal? Also, before I reinvent the wheel, has anyone else added a third party gimbal to the "H"?

The gimbal has it's own IMU to control the stabilization of the gimbal. The third pin on the slide connector provides a path for the pan and tilt signals from the H. While you could use the power for a replacement gimbal, the pan and tilt will not be usable for any non-Yuneec camera.

Thanks, for the feedback, as I have built a couple Storm 32 based gimbals and hoped someone had decoded the signal stream for the gimbal our know if its a standard like MAVLink as the solo uses...

As far as I know it's proprietary to Yuneec. I've not seen anyone who has been able to emulate the signal.

My typhoon h 4k has a six pin connector for the camera I ordered a new camera and it came with only three pin connector. Wrong camera or do I haveto modify ?

Sounds like you received a CGO3 which has 3 pins on the slide. The CGO3+ has 6 pins on the slide which is the camera used on the H.
