    I am planning on buying and using a Phantom 2 +
    with a Gopro 3+black to take pictures of commercial buildings. Can I set up the shots and see what I'm shooting withoutFPV?

    The only way to see what the camera sees is to add a FPV setup. The WiFi link on the GoPro is not compatible with the control signal of the Phantom2.

    Also know that if you are in TimeLapse Photo mode (for hi rez images) the GoPro doesn't output a video image. You will have to set the GoPro to "Video with photos mode" to get video out for the FPV system.

    Thank you. Do you know if the Phantom 2 has an FPV option. I really do not want to go to the Vision model.
