    I have removed the Vision camera and installed a Sony Rx100 II. Was hoping to use the live feed from the Sony App as my new FPV running on the 2.4g frequency. I was hoping the range extender already on the Phantom controller would provide increased wifi range between my iPod and the Sony camera, however this doesn't seem to work.

    Any easy ideas?

    I've used a range extender on a GoPro to get long range -- it's very laggy though so not good for fpv.

    On my Nex7 cam I use an hdmi converter and normal fpv feed, with an IR shutter drive from a spare rc channel..
