    Is it possible to use two smart phones, each with the DJI Vision app simultaneously: one to control camera and monitor, and the other just for monitoring? My objective is to allow someone to easily see what I am seeing and suggest photo angles etc for an archeology field project, without having to look over my shoulder at my screen.
    If there is a better way to accomplish this please advise. Thanks!

    :| I think I just answered my own question. I tried using phone app on iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy at the same time. Got the picture and control on the first phone (iPhone) but not on the Samsung. At one the Samsung did connect, but I could only control the camera with the iPhone. Picture on the iPhone was frozen in black and white.
    Guess I have to come up with some other solution.

    Best bet would be to scrape the video from the phone - using an MHL - HDMI connector on an Android, or via airplay on an iphone.

    I know someone who does this to put live footage from a Vision+ up onto a video screen for hovercraft racing.
