    Hey All

    Just got interested in buying Samsung VR Gear and then using it for flying with my P3 Advanced. Total newbie in it so i wanna know what else do i need, besides the VR itself, to make this happen?

    What should i consider, pros, cons, and etc.


    P.S.
    Is it possible to have both a Cellphone/tablet and FPV goggles connected at the same time? So i can watch on screen and another person with me watch in the goggles?

    Thanks

    If you are buying VR goggle, you need to buy an app that supports VR app such as Litchi for android, FPV Camera.....

    you may be better adding the hdmi out board to your remote and choosing an alternative to the Samsung (or using the the hdmi out feature if available on your tablet.

    I prefer this option but many don't as VR goggles cost $10 onwards ... :)

    I see. Thanks

    Is it possible to have both a Cellphone/tablet and FPV goggles connected at the same time? So i can watch on screen and another person with me watch in the goggles?
    In this case, will the tablet be able to show in goggles and on its screen at the same time?
