Hello! I recently bought a used Iris Plus. I’ve spent the better part of the last 3 days researching and learning how to use/maintain this little drone. So far I’ve been doing pretty good.
I’m having two issues I can’t seem to fix or find anything on the internet about how to.
Tarot 2D-T gimble:
Yikes this was a struggle! I managed to get the gimble to operate properly gimble wise… (Still a little jitter here and there.) But I can’t for the life of me figure out how to get the remote control for tilt to work. In Mission planner, it shows that the radio and the tilt dial on the remote are sending/receiving. But no matter what I do I can’t get it to manually tilt from the remote.
I’ve done the firmware updates for both the gimble and its motors. Holy crap that was a pain in the butt! Windows 10 and its driver issues… I had to Virtual Box windows 7 to get the damn gimble software to work! But it worked! I was excited… thinking “Hey I can make it tilt now!”
Fired it up… STILL NO TILT!
I’m lost! HELP!

3DR telemetry radio
FrSKY Telemetry ( What’s the difference between this guy and the 3Dr one as it has both…)
I can supply pictures if needed. Everything works other than the manual tilt!
Okay so this one I feel is just my in-experience working against me.
I want to hook up my GoPro for a wireless camera setup so I can remote fly the drone. I ride FMX professionally and want to get a buddy to film some mid-flight backflips. Having the remote veiw makes this so much easier to be precice while flying. I’m open to alternatives to the gopro but would like to get it to work as is, if we can.
I have the Little black cable that runs from the gopro to the telemetry. Mini usb to two 3 port black connecters one for 5v the other i assume data transfer. My confusion is where do I connect this cable? From what I understand this cable (Gopro) has to connect to the telemitry so it can be transmitted to the ground 3dr unit that’s connected to a computer?
I can get the 3Dr 944MHz ground unit to connect through mission planner. So I have that connection working. Im just confused on how this GoPro connects… Is there any guides to this? Ive legitmatly spent the better part of the past 2 days trying to find anything that will send me the right direction.
From what i can tell i think i connect the black whires into this guy???
I’m new to drones Please be nice XD. Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide! My frustration is real at the moment.
If anyone needs a guide on how to update the Tarots Firmware using windows 10 I can make one up. That was a huge process and from waht ive seen its a common problem no one knows how to fix.
I got ahold of the guy I bought it off of and he actually forgot to drop me the second 3dr telemetry thing so that explains the camera. Still working on the tilt though!
