    So far I've been using 640x480 15fps and haven't tried any other settings.
    I tested out 320x240 but the resolution makes it tough for me to see, so I haven't tried it out in a real flight.
    It looks like a lot of people use the 320x240 to get better range? What are setting are most people using?

    I use the same settings as you! On an iPhone 4s!

    Here is how it was explained to me ( some will argue otherwise )
    1) 320x240 15fps. ( lowest quality / Longest range )
    2) 320x240 30 fps. ( better quality / less range )
    3) 640x480 15fps. ( a lot better quality / even less range )
    4) 640x480 30fps. ( best quality / least range ) I find my video preview, delays really bad,
    And gets worse the longer I fly, up to 8 seconds behind )using this setting!( 640x480 30fps )

    Since I've been set to 640x480 15fps, good quality pic, I only fly line of sight ( after delay issues almost caused a crash )
    So range is good, and have had NO DELAYS so far! EACH phone is different, my buddy has the iPhone 5s, it previews at
    640x480 30fps with no problem! My iPhone 4s will not?

    Choose what suits your needs best, and that will be your setting!

    Hope this helps!

    Take care, Fly Safe!
