    Search showed no results. Has anyone tried connecting More than one device to the P3S Wi-Fi? I might try this when I get home later today.

    If your meaning concurrently, then no. Having two flight apps running at the same time would not be a good thing, even if it could work technical.

    Are you trying to let someone else view the FPV screen? Couldn't think of anything else as to why.

    You could do a live stream and the other monitor can watch that. But there would probably be some delay.

    I think it would be a great idea if there were an app that could tap into the live video from the camera but have no other function with regards to the bird.

    :)


    Any app developers out there want to give it a go???????

    I wonder what screen mirroring would do and how it would affect things.

    Now on the other models of the Phantom 3's I think you can buy the HDMI add-on and that can be hooked up by cable to an HDMI input to another device or whatever.

    This is exactly my thought. I can fly, but let someone else watch video feed only. I would buy an app that allows this.

    If it doesn't matter that the two monitors are physically connected by a wire, then I think it may be possible using a tablet with an HDMI out jack, like a K1 Shield tablet. The signal out could be fed into another screen like an FPV monitor in a ground station. Maybe someone could try it for you and report back

    Not all tablets have hdmi output. Spare a thought for those who don't have the cash to splash. :)

    I am running an iPhone 5s and had no issue with hooking a lightning to hdmi to monitor cable up and worked great for both of us
