    Just wondering if anyone has had experiences of YouTube Live Streaming and what your impressions were?

    I have just tried it from an iPad 2 Mini over Wifi and experienced a lot of video drops where usually light bridge is rock solid and RC Signal loss 380ish feet overhead for 3 seconds at a time. I eventually bought it back down and down range a bit to improve signal.

    I also found the implementation a bit temperamental on the iPad, when finished I couldn't actually stop the stream, on the first click of the stop streaming button it greyed out but the feed was active, repeated attempts to press stop did not work so I had to kill the app.

    Well done to DJI though, the signal loss was worrying and I doubt I will use it often but it is an innovative feature to include and despite the issues I experienced I am overall very impressed with it.
