    hey guys I have been in the Rc game for a year now
    i have seen guys flying with FPV to great distances on planes etc
    i was going to do my own fpv setup on a glider but got over it and came to the light side and bought the V2+


    i want to understand how it all interlinks with each other...
    the fact it is similar to the 2,4 ghz fpv gear that i had yet connects like a wifi connection is confusing me?

    can multiple phones connect to the v2+ at once?

    can you use other things to connect to the v2+ signal so you can use eg head track on fat shark goggles?


    can someone help me understand


    cheers

    It uses secure wifi, not a plain 2.4GHz radio signal. You need an app to decode what's coming across wifi because it's not sending video in the way a traditional FPV setup does via radio signal that anyone could tune in to. You can't connect multiple devices to it as it's a secure connection - a bit like only people with your password can connect to your home wifi, not just anyone passing by (unless you've got it set up that way!).

    my dji doesnt ask for a password it is juist a non secure wifi signal

    so really they hasve done this to keep any 3rd parties out of the whole mix


    you can boost signals but you can for example use a laptop to see the footage

    mmm vry interesting


    basically I want to get the vision+ footage onto a television live stream eg a monitor parallelled witht he iphone for example
    i do struggle to see the small iphone screen whilst flying
    or better yet a set of fat shark goggles?

    Have you considered an Ipad or other tablet? I'm going to start using my ipad mini.

    haha. I don't believe there is a way to do a secondary stream... unless you can think of a screen sharing app. I just meant to replace the iphone with an ipad for easier viewing.

    When I said secure wifi connection I meant it can't be shared by more than one app/device at a time...

    If you have a device with HDMI out you can plug into anything with HDMI in and mirror what the app sees, inlcuding to Zeiss Cinemizer goggles or the new Fatshark HD goggles. Trouble is you won't see the image in HD because the downlink isn't sent in that resolution. As far as I'm aware the only HD solution currently is the DJI Light Bridge, but that's not designed to work with the Vision...
