    I have a phantom 1.1.1 with a tarot T-2D gimbal. I'm looking into FPV and I was wondering if there is a system I can use my iPad with.

    Thanks in advance!!

    I don't have a P1, but I'm pretty sure it's not possible because the operating frequency is 2.4ghz, same as the iPad wifi. It's only possible with the Vision and FC40 because they operate on 5.8ghz.

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    Yea I kinda figured that, I was thinking of using the ipad as a monitor. Aka video feed into the ipad.

    Since the controller is on 2.4, using 2.4 for a video feed or anything else is a major problem. It has caused flyaways and crashes. You really just need to get an FPV system and monitor that operates on 5.8ghz.

    BTW - Welcome to the forum!

    Oh I see, well I guess I will start looking for a good monitor.

    Thanks! I've already found a bunch of great advise on here :)
