    I saw Best Buy advertising gear Vr for Samsung phones which is what I use for my video display.
    Would that work for flying the my P3A. Seems like it would be a great experience.

    Unfortunately not. The Gear VR requires you plug your phone into the micro usb connecter on the headset. You need that for the link to the controller.

    There are work arounds. You don't have to insert the phone into gear vr usb. There are a few threads here on doing this.

    The VR has a USB out as well. I had to work around the main app to get it to work with litchi

    I think that is old info. The latest Gear VR already has a plug for the RC to connect through the headset right to the phone.
