    Any P2V+ owners that are rocking a Samsung Galaxy 7" tablet for your FPV? If yes, how did you successfully load the DJI app?? Reward for your help!
    Please, Thanks

    I successfully used a Galaxy Tab 4 7", no problem at all, however seeing the thing in daylight is nearly impossible with or without a sunshade, even in the shade.Same issue with the iPad mini. I ended up sending the Tab 4 back when I heard about the forthcoming Galaxy Tab S (8") with AMOLED 2560x1600 screen: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Galaxy-8- ... sung+tab+s

    If you do not already have the tablet, I'd highly suggest you spend $100 more to get an S when they're released at the end of the month. In addition to the unmatched screen, they're also much faster.

    To mount the tablet: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D4A ... UTF8&psc=1
    Fits the ball on the Phantom mount perfectly (you basically throw away the base part of the mount as it's not needed.

    I bought a Tab 3 7.0 Lite and it would NOT work. Sent it back.

    Be interested to see peoples views after using this as I have tried almost every screen going to get a decent picture and none get over the loss of resolution when increasing the size of the image without looking blurry at best, so be interested to see the S screen and how it performs. Even the ipad mini retina screen is rubbish for fpv.

    I'm a broken record on this (and who remembers records???)

    But I had the same problems with screens - there's nothing that really works outside of putting your tab/phone in a showbox and cutting eye holes.

    The best solution is to buy the Moverio glasses. Bright image and easy to see even in bright sunlight. It's also MUCH more immersive than trying to see a phone/tablet screen. It's right there in front of your eyes. They're not perfect, cost an arm+leg, but the best thing I have found.

    Tell me more m8 ?? Like you I have tried all the screens and the fpv is just not setup for larger screens which is a pain in the *** ! Just looking at the moverios and wondering what they are like if you already have to wear glasses ? . Would also prefer a simply large as possible image in the glasses and not a composite, but thats just me.
