    Is there a way to connect 2 units to PV2?
    Sometimes that would be a nice thing to do.
    Having a Samsung S5 on the radio control and a second person can look at a tablet.
    This is important i search and rescue operations when one maneuvers the PV2 and the other person can focus on the task!
    Any ideas or am I into more expensive units?

    I understand that this would be super useful , but simple answer is no , not yet. You might want to consider getting LIGHTBRIDGE from DJI which enables multiple viewers. No , Light bridge is not "perfectly" compatilbe with the PV2+ but there are ways you can get it to work with it.

    There are ways on how you can mirror your view to others wirelessly and they see your phone's screen mirrored on their tablets.

    My 2 cents , It would be pointless to do so as the resolution cannot be used to discern objects clearly . You're gonna need FPV at 720p or higher. The lightbridge offers 1080p @ 60 fps (LIVE)

    Thanks! It is not that difficult to make it work as a gateway with UDP protocol.
    We do that with our AIS transponders and that way 7 units can connect.
    With the TCP protocol only 1 can connect.
    One needs to dig in deeper into the PV2 ;-)
