    Does anyone know if the new Parrot Skycontroller can be used with the DJI Phantom 2 Vision +?
    It has some excellent features.

    I think the answer is no, not without some serious hacking.

    The Skycontroller connects to the Bebop via wifi. It acts as an intermediary between the Bebop and an Android/iOS device.

    You'd need to reprogram the P2V+ wifi module to talk with it, and then it's not clear if the P2V+ can be piloted via the wifi module.

    Alternately, you'd hack the Skycontroller to work with the P2V+, but this would defeat some of its functionality.
