Interesting app.  I briefly looked at the FB page, but I didn't spend a lot of time there.  Sorry if I have missed anything obvious.  I hope someone might help me with a few questions about this app.

I do not have the Phantom 2 Vision +.  I have a Phantom 2 Vision and an Android smart phone (with gps).  I have recently upgraded my controller to fly in NAZA mode.  Does this matter?  

This app is ready to work with my Phantom 2 Vision and my Android smart phone, right?  How many people are flying their Phantom's with this app?

I see that you need 10m gps accuracy.  Any other requirements to fly with this app?  Are there any particular situations to avoid with this app (other than normal safe flying requirements)?

What happens with the Fail Safe settings?  Does the Phantom still remember it's original take off position if there is a controller disconnect?

Thanks in advance for answering my questions.

Currently it works only on phantom 2 vision +   

If you use the follow me feature, it is highly recommended that you use phantom mode.     You need an android device that supports compass since the computation to locate your position is based on your device GPS data and heading.   

Running follow me requires your phantom operated in Ground station mode.  Before going to failsafe, you need to toggle the remote S1 switch to Atti mode to regain manual control.  Our app does not change the home point, so your phantom still remember its original take off position.

yes.  the beta version already have the phantom 3 support.  but since the public firmware does not have the GS support, we are still waiting for DJI to enable the GS to have full featured app release.

Is it possible for me to get in on the beta testing for this app? I am more interested in POI than GS, so I'm not concerned that the GS portion isn't functional yet.

I am using a P3P and running the latest firmware, v1.2.6

I am using a Google Nexus 7 ii running Android OS

Will that firmware be a problem? Is there a link to the beta version or someplace to sign up?
