DJI AVL58 FPV TX Cable Help

Postby 1sicknickel » Wed Jun 26, 2013 4:59 pm

Hello Everyone,
Im new here and I recently purchased the DJI AVL58 kit and Im having an issue with being able to connect to the GoPro Hero 3. I purchased the Hero 3 usb cable to connect to the transmitter but my FPV kit came with a cable that does not have the correct connection. Im looking for this cable from helipal specifically Image Image but nobody carries it and DJI has not responded. If anyone could point me in the right direction of purchasing the cable or even splicing up something myself I'd appreciate it. Thanks

You can buy the cables on eBay and some shops, connectors are available separately too.

Thanks. My biggest dilema is the wiring configuration and DJI doesnt even have it on the site which is very strange to me.

Same issues here,
It's a bugger can't find a spec on the way that 3 pin is wired. Tried it with my Nikon D300s which has the same video plug but couldn't get anything

Just found this on the cover of the Zenmuse control box, I would hope that it applies to all DJI products.
Pin tip -nothing
Next ring- AV
Next ring- Ground

You can see this in the manual for the H32D.

Should be possible to make a cable now, Phew...

OK with the new found info from the Zenmuse I can confirm the wiring config quoted for AVL58.

I made an adaptor cable up going from the Nikon to the DJI as per that and worked a treat!

So if you find the video out of any go pro cable you should be able to do the same.
