    Hey all - I know that the Advanced has a substantially reduced downlink bandwidth than the Pro, but is FPV still worth it? Just watched a YouTube of a guy who spent a grand total of 50 bucks on a Blitzwolf headset and Litchi so he could fly a P3 FPV.

    My first quad (P3A) is on the way, and I'll be using an iPad Mini 2 with it - would it be worth it to do this setup with my Droid Turbo, or should I just stick with the iPad?

    Many thanks, all!

    Yes. It works verry well because it takes away the sun light. You can see in great detail.
    But you can not use Go app.
    On IOS you can use litchi and fpv camera apps.

    On droid only litchi.

    In my test I found that at the time being - the downlink size (2mb vs 10mbps) does not matter as it's more so the quality and processing power of the tablet in use.

    No kidding - so then perhaps I'd be better off using my Droid Turbo versus my older iPad Mini 2! Seems like the Turbo being newer may have more processing power. Thanks all!
