    Not having a smart phone and not wanting to raise my cell phone bill any more than it already is by putting a tablet on it, I called the DJI help line and was told that I could access the DJI Vision 2+ application and communicate with my new Vision 2+ V3' camera by use of a tablet's WIFI capability, so I went out and bought a new Samsung Tab4.

    PLEASE NOTE: I explicitly told him that I am NOT interested in having the capability to set waypoints on the quad, and am only interested in being able to switch on the Phantom's camera and controlling the camera's gimble..........for now at least.

    After downloading the application at a local McDonalds I installed it and was prompted to "log in", using my email address and a password, which I KNEW wouldn't be possible without the Internet.

    Would someone PLEASE tell me that I don't need the net to access this application and run the Phantom's camera? So how do I get around this log in requirement so I can switch on the Phantom's camera?????

    HELP!!!!!

    Do bars have WIFI? No sense in going to McDonalds if I an get blitzed at the same time I log in!!!

    Thanks for the welcome. I hoe for this venture to be both exiting and profitable (doing real estate videos) once I get it figured out.

    I think the login is only requested once. At least it only requested my login on the first flight.
    It wouldn't be logical to login all the time, since I already enter the app connected to Phantom's Wifi, without "real internet connection"
