    Hi !

    Is it possible to get telemetry data to a phone or something without fpv? I dont Care about fpv, i would just like to see batteri info, gps status, etc?
    Does anyone know that?

    There are separate battery voltage systems but they would not give any other data like GPS and such. Hobbyking has a quantum one that looks OK for around 50 bucks I think

    I didn't think I would be interested in FPV when I first got my Phantom,boy was I wrong. A fellow was flying his quad at a local park and asked if I wanted to experience FPV...well,he ruined me in a good way :mrgreen:

    Here is the DJI mini OSD on my monitor , you can see the move up and down with the tilt control
    The S-OSD I'm using now has a lot more information on the screen. And the best part is ,I turned off the metric and turned on imperial measurements .

    So you never look at your drone when you fly? Just using the fpv :D?

    I can use fpv through my fc40 cam also? Same idea? Just only 100 meters
