    Currently have, p2, avl58, fpvhub h3-2d gimble, boscam monitor.

    I'm looking at getting an ipad and use that as a monitor.
    I saw a video on youtube where the pilot was demonstrating the ipad and app.
    But was it strictly wi-fi? I don't recall if that was mentioned or not.
    While a 600ft range isn't bad for most flying, what if I want go longer?

    I don't believe an ipad is setup to receive 5.8ghz so what else would be needed?
    Bluetooth?
    Or could I plug the 5.8 receiver module into the ipad somehow?

    If go with the p2v+ will that setup work or what?

    To use the iPad as an FPV viewing device you'll need to have a P2 Vision or Vision+ and use DJI's proprietary setup built in to those models.
