Does an iPhone 6 work with the HDMI output module?

    Just ordered a Hootoo 3D VR headset for my iPhone 6.

    My objective is not to use it as an FPV solution for controlling my P3P since I want to fly legally with LOS, here in Canada. So I intend to use the DJI Go App with an iPad Air 2 for piloting.

    I wish to use my iPhone 6 with the Hootoo headset to allow friends to look at the P3P flight without always been over my shoulder trying to see my iPad display. I've ordered an HDMI output module to hook my iPhone on it but I'm not sure if :

    1- An iPhone 6 can be used with the HDMI (with an HDMI adaptor) or the micro-USB port of this module to display an FPV view at the same time I will use the standard USB port of my P3P controller for the DJI Go App.

    2- Does the FPV camera App allow the disabling of the tilt control of the P3P camera form the headset?

    If anyone can answer any of those questions or suggest a better setup for my goals, thanks.

    Thanks Alokbhargava,

    I figure out that the iPhone won't work with an HDMI input. And I didn't find any monitor with HDMI in that will fit in an smartphone holder headset, not mentioning that such a device would need to be able to split the video feed in two for each eye.

    So now, I'm looking for a cheap Google device with HDMI input like the Headplay headset but without the RF receiver electronics.

    I wonder why there is no DIY to add HDMI port to iPhone :) or Apple introduces an HDMI interface in new devices.
