    Hi!

    I bought myself an Vision+ today. What great machine! :)

    I was a Little bit nervous on my first takeoff but it went very well.
    What is the easiest way to get the videos and pictures from the camera to a PC?

    Is it possible to get hi-res Pictures to my iPhone/iPad Mini Retina?

    How do you travel with your Visions? Which case is the best? I dont want to remove the propps every time....


    Thank you in advance :)

    You can take the MSD card out and insert into a card reader connected to your computer. That's the easiest ways.

    I believe you can go into the app on your phone while connected to the camera and you can download the photos there--I believe high res.

    There are a lot of options for cases. I have the GoProfessional case and it's nice but it's on the expensive side $200ish. There are many other options out there.

    Is there any cheaper cases that will fit the Vision with propps mounted? :)

    Have anyone of you tried the iPad mini mount? Will it affect the range of my WiFi or radio?

    If i need a couple of extra batteries.... Is it OK to buy cheaper "Hongkong" batteries or are they crap?

    I bought a cheap GripGo ($9) from ebay and removed the car stand it comes with and it's perfect for the iPad mini.
    Just a tiny bit of plastic which can be clamped to the iPhone clamp.

    I ordered a backpack case which hasn't arrived yet as all of the local sellers only have hard cases which are harder to carry on hikes.
    Only $80 and I need to take the props off every time but it's so easy anyway.
