WiFi to the app was a horrible decision....

So today I was messing around with my OA and had a run in with a feature that needs to change ASAP!

I was cleaning my pool and thought it would be funny to attach my OA to my vaccum cleaner and then video it at the bottom of my pool, but I wanted to be able to see what the camera was seeing by using the app.  I open the app, connect the camera, make sure I can see what its seeing, and then I put my OA into the pool and let it sink to the bottom (its only 4ft deep) and as soon as the thing sank past a ft below surface, the connection to my MiMO app died and I could no longer see what the OA was seeing at the bottom of my pool.  

I am not sure if BT would be any better, but the current setup with WiFi only is definitely not ideal....

That's why submarines use very long wavelengths for underwater communications.  Anything like BT and wireless won't work.  They assume that you will be in the water with the camera, or that you can simply point it in the general direction and get the shot with the very wide angle lens.

well, that makes total sense...

Thanks for the heads up... and now back to testing.
