    Found out the hard way not to turn on the wifi on my GoPro. Can you have a FPV through the iphone or ipad without turning on the wifi? I will buy the cool glasses, but for now, is there anything I can do?

    Thanks a ton.

    Getting FPV video on your ipad requires a Phantom Vision or Vision+, but you do have the option of using a 7 or 8" monitor for viewing with your setup instead of goggles.

    When you say learned the hard way.. What exactly happened? I've always been curious.

    I'd always heard that if you DIDN'T turn off the Wi-fi on the GoPro it would interfere with your RC. So now I'm confused. Do tell us what happened... now I'm curious.

    I lost control of the Phantom. Luckily I set the GPS up correctly. It went into fail safe mode and landed at my feet.
