    Has it been done or is it possible to equip a Phantom2+ with some type of audio speakers that the pilot could communicate with someone from a distance?

    The speaker(s) would have to be very loud, just to overcome the sound of the props.
    Loud speakers are very heavy and contain a large magnet.

    I thought a magnet might be a problem, with all the techy people out there I would have thought it a challenge worth while.

    I have a couple of buddies who fly with Mr. RC's sound system on their RC planes.
    With today's technology, there are tiny magnet free speakers that are light weight and produce some serious sound for their size. I've seen and know of people who fly with microphones on their RC planes as well to monitor the sound of the motors. The problem with a microphone on a quad would be the overwhelming noise of the 4 props - not sure you could hear anything besides that.
    If your goal is to communicate with others, I would think you'd have to tether the speaker and microphone well below the quad and fly with them dangling below far enough to be out of the prop noise.

    I also remember reading about someone who played music from their Phantom with an iPod Nano and microspeakers.

    Let us know if you ever do this!

    I'd play Wagner, like Col. Kilgore.
