    I'm trying to figure out how to attach two HeadPlays to the HDMI output to allow two observers to view what the camera sees in addition to the pilot's tablet. Anybody have any ideas. Is it possible? Thanks in advance for any helpful responses.

    Yah, there are lots of HDM splitters out there. Monoprice has a few that I have used, Amazon lists a number of brands.

    How would you power the splitter. Requires 5 volts, DC.

    If it's not too picky, maybe a 2S Rx pack?

    Set up an HDMI TV -- I built this one for my QAV 500, but will also use it with the P3-- in bright sunlight, you can throw a black photograpy cloth hood to block out the sunlight and a couple of observers can view at one time.
