    I don't have my quad yet, but ..
    Is there a way to have two devices showing the feed from the quad?
    So, one device as the primary view which the person flying uses, and then a separet one, connected somehow (somehow?) so that someone else can watch the flight without putting their head infront of the primary display... or else, using googles? I have the older Fatshark ones, with the RCA connections.

    You can supposedly live stream on youtube but it has never worked good for me. If you buy an Inspire 1 you can have 1 controller to fly and one to control the camera. If you fly at home connected to wifi you can send the iphone/ipad screen to an appletv. If you install the $100 hdmi output board or have an Inspire 1, I believe you can get hdmi out to a secondary device without the secondary device being able to enter any control input (affecting your flight)

    Thanks!

    The Nvidia Shield K1 seems to have built in HDMI out. That might be a winner. Then I can get an HDMI to RCA converter .. if such a thing lives ... and then the fatshark goggles might work.

    They exist. Remember the K1 has "Mini HDMI" so you might also need a hdmi female to mini hdmi male cable. unless you can find a mini hdmi to RCA converter

    Did you get this working? I have a K1 coming and would like to give it a go.
