    Hi - looking to learn how to get up to speed on video and photography with my new phantom 1. I have a go pro 3+black, but I've read that you can't use the wifi app with iPhone. Can you use the handheld remote? Obviously flight experience and photographic skills are key... But what advice can you give a new flyer?

    Thanks!

    Dont worrie about the remote. Simply turn on video or timelapse pictures before you take off. The gopro lens offers a really wide field of view so just aim it at the general direction that you want to capture and most likely you will get the shot. Shoot in Medium field of view as the wide /super view will cause you to get the landing gear in the videos. For video fly smooth with slow turns.

    Have you thought about going further and investing in kit to get you FPV? It's well worth it!

    Thanks! Good advice. I am thinking about fpv... Very cool stuff. I'm just getting started, but so far pretty excited. Three batteries and lots of memory for my go pro.
