    Hi I hope some could help
    when I get about 5 mins into flight at about 200ft my iPhone display freezes, sometimes goes black & white with locked photo, and other times it has a delay when I have landed it still downloading from 5 mins before footage

    You could try a lower resolution.
    It's borderline on higher settings - some devices manage better than others.

    If it seems the screen is locking up (it just freezes, or it goes all haywire), you may be having interference with your wi-fi repeater.
    I had this same issue last week while flying, because of metal structures nearby. I came back to do some research, and found if you are flying a P2V or V+, you can easily modify the repeater by adding a 5dbi or 8dbi antenna.

    Here is a link to the video that explains it:

    I did this, and flew in exactly the same place today, and it worked perfectly. I got no lockups, and the video played back during the entire flight. I was using the 5dbi t-link antenna, and I also bought the 8dbi, just in case. Total cost $20. :mrgreen:
