Ever since I got my Phantom, I was never able to get a video feed and fly with FPV.  Upon receiving my P3, I immediately updated to:
Firmware 1.19
Pilot App 1.10

I was also running a Samsung Galaxy S4 with Lollipop 5.0.1

Today I just tried downgrading from Android 5.01 to Android 4.4.2 with the same firmware and pilot app.

Success!!   

So there appears to be an issue between the DJI Pilot 1.1.0 app and Android 5.0.1 because it ran just fine on my Samsung Galaxy S4 on that version of Android.

Working in the technology industry and having quite a bit of knowledge on hardware specs, I have always been skeptical of people saying that you need to upgrade to more modern hardware, Nvidia Shield tablet.  People kept saying that older mobile handset devices were too slow to stream 720p video, which would be odd since I can stream it just fine from other sources.

So I hope this helps the DJI development team in figuring out how to address the issue.   At this point I'm just glad I can fully utilize my Phantom for the time being.

I discovered this 2 weeks ago when my Samsung Galaxy Tab S updated to Lollypop 5.01.  The Pilot app kept freezing and crashing in FPV and I could not change video or camera settings.  The tablet had worked fine before the upgrade. I am still having these issues and flying very carefully while waiting for an update to the Pilot app to (hopefully) take care of this.

I just finished flying my P3P for perhaps the last time, Its dangerous, something is going to happen and its going to damage itself. I cannot afford that, I haven't even received my second battery yet.  I have had this thing for a month now and the situation just keeps getting worse.  I am contacting where I got this and pay pal to be certain I do not run out of time to send it back, it is parked.  The last update made things worse.  Every time I come back and land from a flight I still have 20 to 60 ft. showing on my alt,  with the lag so bad now on my tab s 4.4.2 that I cant fly it.  I could at least fly it on the 4.4.2 tab s before this update, this is to much, I have a tab s with lollipop on it also, may as well not even turn it on. Check to see how long you have to return,  I am contacting seller on ebay and pay pal right now, this puppy is going back.  I'm done stick a fork in me.  Do not let the return time run out, contact your credit card company.

You have to root the phone or tablet and use custom firmware...    Go to xda developers web site and search for your device and there will be instructions and the files you need to root the android device and install a custom recovery and firmware
