    Got my P2V earlier this week, and worked thru all the setup procedures and got it flying - a wonderful thing!

    HOWEVER... I am a newbie with Android - bought a Galaxy S III phone to use as the mobile device (View-screen) and right off had serious problems with the video feed. It was mostly broken-up, frozen, pixilated, etc. and basically unuseable. Funniest thing - my iPod worked just fine. Turns out the power-saving mode on the phone interfered with WiFi - turning that feature off solved everything.

    Just a word to the wise...
