    Here is a view from my iPad while running my DJI Ground Station.

    Here is the flytrex flight data: http://www.flytrex.com/mission/quadcopt ... ato-26777/

    Although I had my distance limit set to 1000ft in my Naza Assistant, the Ground Station bypassed it to 1.2 miles.

    Ground Station lost communications with Phantom 2 at 3500ft Distance. The phantom continued on it's programmed path and returned home.

    Great Videos! What do you use to capture your iPad screen with? I'd like to do the same.
    I also find it interesting how your angle is slightly to the left rather than pointing straight ahead, being from Alberta mine has even more angle but to the right. I'm hoping the compass fix will get this problem sorted out as well.

    Very cool. Are the gauges in the 2nd video available in dashware? I honestly haven't checked the newest ones in a while.

    Running an app called airserver on my ios device. It allows me to make my PC a mirror of my iPad , via a small client software.

    I' just made the gauges today, after I tweak them some, they will be in dashware.

    Cool. I wonder what caused the disconnection at the start causing you to have to connect manually? Btu too far away from ipad? There is a box in the way right next to the btu too. Also i think setting forward speed to 25mph hindered the climb to 400ft on its way to waypoint 2.

    Cool though, one day i'll have GS but I don't have a laptop or Ipad at the moment :(

    I think the climb from waypoint 1 (100ft) to waypoint 2 (400ft) is a gradual one. This is a good lesson learned, be sauce I an planning another flight with a tall trees and a hill, so I will need the first waypoint at my house to be 400 feet from the get go.

    Reflector is another good app to mirror Ipad
