    FPV Camera (iOS) for Phantom 3 is released and available NOW in App Store https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fpv-camera/id1017170829?ls=1&mt=8

    Many members PM me in the past few days with similar questions about DJI firmware and iOS support of the app, goggles mode, import/export flight log, etc. I prefer to post the questions and answers in the thread to share with all members.

    I have a Phantom 3P and would like to get the FVP Camera App. I have updated the firmware of the Phantom, Controller and Battery to firmware 1.3.2.
    Two questions:
    1: Does the App run with the 1.3.2 firmware?
    2: Does the App run on the IPad 2 v8.4?
    Looking forward to your reply.
    Thanks!

    1. The app support firmware 1.1.6 or above.
    2. The app support iOS 8 or above (including 8.4) with compatible iDevices. I'm unsure what device are you using iPad 2 (not compatible), iPad Mini 2 (compatible) or iPad Air 2 (compatible).

    Looks nice at first glance.

    Many pilots are experiencing a tilted horizon. Some are able to correct this using the gimbal roll adjustment in the Pilot/GO app. Does your app support a gimbal roll adjustment?

    If one make a purchase for the goggles on his Ipad Air, must he also make a separate purchase on his Iphone 6?

    The app doesn't support gimbal adjustment for the time being, but we can add this feature if necessary. I thought the FW 1.3.2 fixed this issue, after proper IMU calibration.

    You can share the app across all devices with the same Apple ID. For in-app purchase (like FPV Goggles), you may use "Restore In-App Purchase" in Help to share with other devices.

    Sorry, Flight Log doesn't sync with DJI server. We plan to sync the log with iCloud or other cloud services.

    I don't think iPad 2 is in P3 compatibility list, which is under power to process DJI Lightbridge HD video streaming.

    Not so unfortunately. Its hit or miss. Some have seen a help, some have not. Many of the folks who are still suffering need the gimbal roll adjustment, although even that is not a fix for everyone. In my case, the gimbal tilt angle changes throughout a flight, so even with a gimbal roll adjustment I will still have a tilted horizon. Others however have better results with the adjustment, especially now since DJI finally made the adjustment a sticky setting that does not need to be entered every flight. You should put this feature on your list for the next release.

    Saved gimbal roll adjustment seems a quick way to workaround with this temporary, but I heard some still not leveling due to adjustment keeps changing after power cycle P3. We have been exploring an "automatic" way to adjust the gimbal roll setting.

    Two things, last night, I noticed the Ipad Air screen slightly rolling, not a complete roll, but a faint roll. It was just a faint roll, have not noticed that in dji Go.
    Second, can you post instructions so I can print, Facebook cuts them off and I can't read it.

    Any chance to post 2 screenshots to compare such "faint roll" of FPV app with DJI app?

    For printing OP's FB links, I use IE with these steps (1) highlight & select the content (2) Ctrl+P (3) pick "Selection" in Page Range (4) click "Print" button. Other browsers might work in similar way.

    No, it's only a faint roll on FPV, I could barely see it, but it was there.
