    Hello guys,

    This is my first topic here and i hope i will find someone will help me.

    I am sure that most of you had seen what Alcatel-Lucent make with Parrot Drones, how it is possible to do it over 4G.

    I got the Phantom, and i got the 4G static ip addresses.

    I tried a lot of possibilites but at the end i was reaching to a dead end.

    Can i hear your ideas about it.

    I have LTE USB dongles, ZTE LTE 4G to wifi hotspot, Dlink with 4G.

    Please your advise

    No joke, I was looking for this thread for like 30 mins lol... I had a big reply lined up.... glad I did not post.

    How the hell did you do it ??

    The app has the IP of the Phantom 192.168.1.1 hard coded, the camera as well is hard coded to send to 192.168.1.1.

    VERY VERY CURIOUS :) ?????
    Great job if you got it working!!

    Sure Justin, just give me some time because we are having a POC for our client and the drone is part of it. As soon as i am done, i will send the steps with photos and it is just the first step.

    if you could share how you did it when your ready that would be great. Or PM me if you don't want to make it public :)

    Verrrry curious how you did it. I've got 1 idea in mind but its clunky/cheating abit..

    Thanks heaps

    it would be easy to do to a system you put together with diff components... but curious how he did it with DJI's... considering everything is hardcoded... the camera knows to talk to the quad on IP 192.168.1.1 and vice versa... plus app knows to talk to 192.168.1.1 (phantom) and camera 192.168.1.10

    Would love to see some video proof and a description of how you did it. We were just talking about this today. Congratulations for getting it to work.
