    It occurred to me that I may have a predicament….

    I use a MacBook Pro laptop and then a Samsung Note 3 mobile phone, which I'd use for my upcoming purchase of the P2V+.

    Is there going to be a problem in the following scenario:

    I use the Mac computer to connect the P2V+ to for all updates from DJI using the DJI software for calibration purposes (PT2) etc…. but then use my Samsung Note 3 on the controller with the DJI app from Play Store to see the video and control the camera and take photos?

    OR

    Am I going to have to use one or the other platforms in it's entirety to fly/operate the P2V+?

    (Hope this question makes sense?)

    Thanks for your input.

    Pat

    I can't see any reason why that would be a problem; I fly using a Note 3 and it works very well. Admittedly, I use a PC to install firmware updates and to configure the IMU and RC controller, but the DJI firmware remains the same regardless of the platform used to set it up.

    I hope this helps.

    I use my mac for software, calibration etc.
