    Just finished building my Phantom 2, Vision replacement.

    Added:
    Immersion Rc 600mw 5.8Ghz Video Transmitter
    Black Pearl HDMI 5.8Ghz 32 Channel Diversity 7" Monitor + FatShark
    (Designed and 3D printed a custom mount to fit DJI controller)

    DJI IOSD Mini
    DJI iOS Ground Station inc 2.4Ghz Data link and Bluetooth Module
    (Ipad with Ground Station installed, waiting for DJI software update)

    Decided to Velcro it all outside the body, so it's all removable and can be patched/upgraded.

    Anyone any idea when DJI will release the patch for the Ground Station stuff?

    Very nice setup and nice job on printing the monitor mount. I am looking at pretty much the same setup minus the ground station. How are you liking the black pearl monitor? Any concerns with it in bright sunlight? thanks

    I have all the same stuff pretty much, have not yet installed yet, but would like to know how much yours weighs all up and ready to fly. I am a little worried I might be wayyy overweight when I am done with my installation.

    I have a similar setup and get 15 - 17 minutes flight time. Well worth the trade off.

    Looks like I get about 15 -17 min of flight time, but I now have some stability concerns, in hard descent I almost lost it, very bad wobble. Also getting interference on the 5.8G signal, I'm trying to work out why. Love the black pearl monitor and getting good stable video from the GoPro unlike the Phantom Vision.
