    It seems Litchi have taken a page out of GoPro's book and now have an App for iOS that allows others to view your camera view on their device. I hope DJI jumps on board with this as well.

    Currently this Vue app is not fully matured. I tried yesterday but was not happy with it, screen on the other device shows top portion of the image distorted. May be we need faster devices like iPhone 7

    I think it will be great for using it in the VR goggle so you can have a wired tablet on the RC and phone in the VR goggle wirelessly.

    I tried it indoors yesterday while connected to my home wifi. I use an iPad mini to fly with, so I assume if I am in the field and have no wifi connection that I won't be able to use this? It would be nice if it would work with Bluetooth for those of us that don't use a phone to fly and can't set up a personal hotspot.

    I think you can connect iPhone and iPad using personal hotspot.

    Ya I kind of wish it was over Bluetooth too. I have a hotspot, ...... anyone know how much data this uses lol. I only have 1 gig of hotspot. I plan on trying it this weekend at home over the wifi with my iPad air2 to streaming to a 6s.....

    Litchi Vue doesn't work for me. With my P4, I turned on my Ipad Air2 hotspot flight device with the latest Litchi version (I just updated it), and on a second iPad Mini2 I turned off Bluetooth and connected to my iPad Air2 hotspot, I turn off Cellular on the Mini, wifi only was on. The hotspot tested fine, the Mini was connected to the Air with Internet access. However when I launched Vue on the Mini it showed no streams available. There doesn't seem to be any settings in the flight Litchi app to broadcast the stream, so I guess it's always on. It just doesn't work, the Mini2 running Vue won't connect to the iPad Air2 running Litchi. Has anyone else got it to work as advertised?

    Can you explain more about what you mean by "I have a portable ap"?

    When you connect the Mini2 to your mini 4 hotspot running Litchi, does the Mini2 Vue app see "available streams" from the Mini4 running Litchi while connected to the craft?
