    I was filming, everything was perfect, then I turn off the P2V+, and then when turn it on, I can't see on my tablet what the camera see, but I can take pictures and video, I can see all the flight parameter (longitude, altitude...) but the FPV don't work... I need help!

    That is a pretty common problem. The wifi module in the phantom has probably burned up on you. You can try checking the ribbon cable but its usually a couple hundred dollar fix for the onboard module. There are allot of unhappy people having to replace it. I would like to get hold of a burned up unit and see what needs repair inside it. If you replace it I would be happy to buy the old one off you or try to repair it free of charge.

    You mean the wifi module on the Remote Control, the white little box ? because, that one is working perfect, or you mean about a circuit board inside the phantom?

    I have to ask. Have you been using the booster app? It seems the app may be over heating the module.

    Question for you guys:

    Why if the wifi module is burned up, I can see on my tablet: latitude, longitude, distance, I can move up and down the camera, etc.... ? The only thing I can't see is video, the all other functions work perfect

    I don't think you or anybody else knows the long term effect of changing the way the wifi extender was designed to work.
