    Hey guys, this is my first post. I've been browsing the site for a while and finally decided to join. I look forward to being apart of a great community of phantom flyers.

    I currently do not have an fpv setup for my phantom. I will be making a purchase today, but I have one last question before I do.

    Is it possible to use the DJI iPad Ground Station and also have a FPV setup? It appears that the ground station provided from dji allows you to set waypoints but I haven't seen anything showing that it can also be connected to the camera.. Is that possible?

    If not, I imagine I would need the ground station and an fpv setup. Will there be any interference between the two?

    Thanks guys.

    I'm still trying to confirm that the ios ground station will work with the Phantom. All the dealers I call say it only works on V2 yet the DJI site says it should.

    There is a V2 version of the Phantom that is coming out as well as the Phantom Vision. http://www.dji.com/a-special-promotion- ... e-phantom/

    I was talking about the Naza-M V2. The phantom has the Naza-M (red colored one) and the Naza-M V2 is the yellow one. I've spoke with a few dealers and they are all saying that it will only work with the Naza-M V2 but the DJI website clearly says Naza-M. http://www.dji.com/tech-spec/ipad-ground-station-spec/

    I just bought this package (http://www.intelligentuas.com/Independe ... SKID-COMBO) since I wanted a Zenmuse and the iOS Ground Station. If the ground station doesn't connect to the phantom, I can use the 450 with the Naza-M V2 and sell the phantom. If it does conenct to the phantom, I'll sell the 450 and Naza-M V2. It sort of sucks that getting DJI on the phone is nearly impossible and getting a reply by email is even harder. When you call the dealers they are sort of clueless. The forum is the best place for answers but it is sort of trial and error. Someone needs to invest the money to see if it works and report back to the team. Looks like we are the ones to test this out.
