    Guys,

    New to all this and need a question answered.

    I have a Phantom 2 with Gopro on a gimbal and a mini iosd for flight data on my Lilliput screen, now.....

    How can I capture the video feed and flight data to a Ipad for example because the card in the Gopro only captures the picture not the mini data.

    Regards

    Which Lilliput and if it's a 664W are you using the built in receiver? If so does it have the optional HDMI out? You can get a mini DVR for approx $100 and record the output.

    If it does not have the optional HDMI out the only way I know is to get another receiver and put that output to the DVR. I usually over research my purchases but when I bought the Lilliput I didn't know about the opt HDMI. Found out after I could have included it for the same price. I ended up getting a Immersionrc Duo 5800 receiver. I can switch between the Duo and Lilliput receiver and the 2nd ouput of the Duo goes to the DVR. I mounted the DVR on top of the Lilliput so I can use it as a back up if I loose the Lilliput feed.

    I got this one. There are many like this just packaged differently. I have had no troubles with this one.

    That's how most of them come unless you order through Lilliput. I asked Lilliput if they would add it and it was a no. I am not an Apple guy but I believe as with most tablet they only do HDMI out, no in for recording. With an app it may be possible. I have my Canon outputting through USB to my Samsung tablet making it full control monitor with touch screen. The only other option I would know is another receiver with the same frequency as your Lilliput. If you do go that route I can assist with the Lilliput output cable so you don't have 6 ft of cable hanging on your DVR.

    The other option I presume would be a ground station like the DJI Innovations 2.4Ghz Bluetooth Datalink & iPad Ground Station.

    you could flytrex & add the data to the video via dashware. I'm going to get some Dominator V2 goggles soon which have a built in dvr

    I have the Lilliput 664w monitor and it has no HDMI output. I also haven't seen an HDMI compatible DVR so it would be of limited use. I use ImmersionRC Uno and a ReadyMadeRC DVR. If your goal is to have a ground based record of the flight, this combo is as good as any.

    The only challenge is powering the ImmersionRC receiver. I ended up hardwiring the same battery adapter that fits the Lilliput. That way I can use the same batteries for both screen and vRX.

    I think this is my only option.
