    Hope some can help me, I have he Phantom 2 Vision, had it for about 6 months with no problems. Now there is a 30 second to 1-1/2 minute
    lag between the camera and ipod, Sometimes after I have already landed the picture is still coming in as if I were still flying. The camera when taking pictures seem to be okay. I have the Apple Ipod that was recommended by Atlanta Hobby.

    Open ( DJI APP )
    On opening screen of APP
    Choose ( Settings )
    Look for ( PREVIEW QUALITY )
    Under preview quality, select a LOWER SETTING!
    Here are the choices:
    1) 640 x 480 30 FPS ( frames per second )
    ( do not use setting above ! )
    2) 640 x 480 15fps ( works well iPhone 4s )
    3) 320 x 240 30fps
    4) 320 x 240 15fps

    Top setting is HIGHEST setting, bottom is lowest,
    Basically 640x480 30fps is best preview quality, but less
    Range, then 640x480 15fps is little less quality, but better
    Range, 320x240 30fps less quality, even more range,
    and 320x240 15fps worst quality, best range!

    You'll have to play with the settings, to get it right!

    Take care, fly safe!
