    Hi,

    I'm looking to purchase a Phantom 2 with a Zenmuse mount (http://www.dji.com/product/phantom-2). Some of the included options and functionality are not clear on the DJI website. If anyone could clarify that would be great.

    -Besides the Phantom 2 body and Zenmuse munt, what else comes with the kit?
    -What phone apps work out of the box with it, and what functionality do they have?
    ---Will I be able to monitor the Phantom's orientation and position via my iPhone?
    ---Am I able to program a path using waypoints on an iPhone, or do I need an iPad?

    Thanks.

    The Phantom 2 + Zenmuse doesn't have any native interface for mobile devices, but you can add DJI's iPad groundstation for a lot of that: http://www.dji.com/product/ipad-ground-station

    The Phantom 2 Vision and Vision+ do have a control and tracking interface that can be used on iPads and iPhones and android Phones/tablets as well...but there's not really any practical way to migrate that to a regular P2 + Zenmuse.

    You might want to hold off and see what this is like when Dronexpert release this nifty little mod. They've managed to put a h3-3d on an p2v+ and are able to connect the vision phone app with a gopro and a digital camera. It gives the best of both worlds :)
