    I noticed that the P3 controller does not have a HDMI output like the Inspire (at least the wesbsite shows it that way). Does this mean there is no way of viewing the lightbridge stream on FPV glasses and the only option is to use a tablet?

    The potential of long-range FPV with glasses is really attractive - so being limited to tablet only would be a shame.

    Does anyone know if any FPV glasses work with the tablet-link that is provided?

    By the way - I know the regulations require the pilot to not use FPV - however, the glasses could be used by others.

    Thanks in advance for any info/guidance!

    Over on rcgroups they are saying you'll be able to buy an adaptor that adds the hdmi. They are also saying you can switch the part on the back of the controller and simply add that portion from the inspire controller. Supposed to be available soon.

    Thanks for the answers. Looks like there is no 'cost effective' way of doing it - just yet anyway.
    I imagine any controller upgrade is not going to be cheap, and the epson moverio is 700 bucks!

    At this moment I think that using a nvidia shield is the cheapest option. That may change if the rumors are true that Dji will release a dongle with hdmi out.

    Could you me direct me to the discussion over at rcgroups where they are saying this? I'd like to follow that thread. Do you have the exact link? Thanks.
