    Little new here guys....can't seem to find where to purchase ground station for iPhone. Finding iPad, but not the iPhone.

    I checked the place I bought the phantom 2, but they show some black colored gadgets, which I'm sure are good for something...

    I want the one that attaches to your controller; looked cool and whatnot...where to purchase?

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forums.
    I believe Ground Station only works with iPad or a Windows based PC's. When you buy older stock has both iPad and PC, but newer versions are either or, not both. I made sure to buy one with both versions.
    Not sure what the 'black thing' would be your looking for... how about a pic of it?

    Hmmm, ok so its for the iPad or PC. What are all the youtube videos I see with iPhones attached to the controller? Is that all just part of "ground station" or is that a something separate?

    Black thing was a bad description. Hopefully attachment made it.

    After review; I believe I'm not looking for Ground Station, but rather iPhone accessories (If thats the correct terminology). I see on the you tube videos people have an iPhone clamp and something that is attached to the controller. My guess is that its some type of booster or range extender???

    That gear is only for Vision and Vision+. They use an iPhone as the FPV screen and the range extender is for the wifi. Non-vision phantoms use non of that stuff. Go to the DJI page and look at the difference between the Vision & the P2 non-vision.

    You have a non-vision correct?
