Hello guys,  I am over at the inpire 1 forum and I am enjoying my bird. However I have always been intruiged by the S series.
What controllers are use to fly an S900 for instance? does it have "FPV" capabilites like the inspire? Does it use an App on a tablet?

This seems to be a more profesional platflorm, so it should allow me to controll the gimbal and take photos ect?  I am very lost as you can tell so any information would be very helpful.
THanks.

Guys I have another question regarding camera live feed. I was told I can buy light bridge and use a tablet with an app?
I am looking at an S900 setup for photogrammetery and having GPS tags on the photos is important. How is this achieved with such setup?

With Lightbridge, the normal video output is a mini HDMI port, so you can display the video downlink on anything that accepts a HDMI signal.

I use my S1000+/A2 system mostly for photogrammetry, and I use a Lilliput 7 inch display for the live feed.

There is a USB port on the Lightbridge, and there is documentation and several posts on this forum about people using that with a phone or tablet as the display device.

To program the photogrammetry mission pre-flight, I use a Windows tablet that will run the PC Ground Station Windows app. My favorite computer for this is a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 because of its small size.
