    I'm looking at ways you can connect the ST16 to an iPad for clients to view. If anyone is using duet display or hdmi to do this would be awesome. Novice with iPad so keep laughter to a minimum. Cheers all.

    You can just WIFI it to the Drone if you want. I have done that for dual displays using the CG03 APP. works great. I have not tried the HDMI connector

    If you do it via wifi the range would be extremely small as the iPad contains no antenna as per the ST16.

    You can get an HDMI to iPad connector. But I'm sure I've seen people report that the screen on the ST16 goes black if you plug in an HDMI cable. Also I think you'd require some type of video input App on the iPad to accept the incoming video signal from the ST16 via the HDMI to iPad cable.

    Interesting Capt, I just tested it in my back yard. I will check wifi range next time I fly if someone does not beat me to it.

    From what I understand, the HDMI to Lightning adapter is for HDMI OUTPUT from the iPad, *not* input. So the rest of what you've reported doesn't really matter.

    Have you ACTUALLY tried this?

    Reading the materials, you use the standard USB -> Lightning cable and specific software on the laptop driving the iPad as a display.

    Don't forget to connect the Ipad to the CGO3+ Wifi. Then click on the very small square at the bottom when you've open the app.

    You don't need to do anything on ST16 for this - the app connects directly to the CGO3 camera.

    The functionality is limited to the camera (i.e. you can see what's there and control the shutter, white balance, etc.) and you can't adjust the gimbal or the flight path.

    I believe the app was intended for use primarily as the viewfinder when you're using the steadicam thing that the Q500's came with.

    Ok cool. So I'll have the same signal strength to ST16 and iPad. It's all I need so clients can view what the camera sees. No need for a monitor or power that's sweet. Cheers mate
