    Is there a way to record the flight info into the video like the altitude and speed?

    No there isn't a way to record it into the video file. HOWEVER, I have a bright idea of using a third party app that records a video of whatever is on my device screen. Which would of course have all the info about your flight. Would also be of use for an AAR of your excursion.

    Yes I think there are a few on the Google market. I know nothing about iPhone cause I don't use them. The flytrex thing looks like it costs a lot of coin compared to a simple screen capture. I have no idea about the flytrex dashware solution and would need to study it a bit to see what it is really for.

    Well my idea is mediocre at best cause it looks like you need a rooted phone to do it. If u have a dedicated device u use besides your actual smartphone then maybe? Could always go with the $100+ flytrex solution that has u installing hardware on your phantom.
