    Hi,

    Thanks for this site. Great "support" from everybody!

    Some questions:

    1. In what topic do you want me to post questions about my Phantom 2 vision?

    2. Regarding video format, why cant my Iphone play the videos that I download via WiFi to the Iphone?

    3. Regarding the range to the P2V, my contact breaks approx 100m (300 feet) frpn the transmitter.
    Can I make that range longer?

    THANKS A LOT!!!

    Alexis

    Welcome,

    1. Phantom 2 Vision forum is http://www.phantompilots.com/viewforum.php?f=7

    2. Video's downloaded are not in a .mov format which I think your iPhone needs to play (unless you've got an app). You're probably better off copying the files directly to a computer then sync with your phone. Otherwise you'll use a heck of a lot of battery transferring so much data.

    3. Have you confirmed you're in FCC Mode? When you switch on the radio transmitter do you hear two beeps? That should give you 500 Metres out of the box. If you only hear one beep then you're in CE mode (which is the mode you're supposed to use in Europe). There are other ways to extend the range but you should do a little more research.

    As you find your way around the site you'll discover all sorts of interesting stuff.

    Enjoy your flying

    Question2
    Could also be how many frames your recording in, my ipad will play the 30fps but not the 60fps
