Not sure but, I think you can do it with a HDMI module that you can add to your P4 RC. I never tried it but I think that is how it can be done.

If you are using an ipad on the controller you can airplay to a macbook, but not another ipad

Here's a clue. I asked if there was a way to hook up a laptop to my P4 to VIEW the video in real time. What part of view versus control did you miss? Nice quick draw worthless response tho. Thanks. Next time I'll add the finer details like, is there a way to hook a laptop to the radio controller of my P4 to VIEW the video in real time on the laptop. Better? It will shorten the cable length a bit don't you think?

The only method, as Roger has suggested, is to fit the HDMI output module to your RC unit. Then you can connect anything that accepts a HDMI input in order to view the images.

I have ordered the HDMI module and when it's installed I will try to view the video real time with it but am unsure of my laptops ability to do this. I am focused on the laptop because of it's battery life and portability in the field as opposed to a monitor or a television. Thanks.

Laptops sometimes have HDMI outputs, but not inputs. You may be in trouble there.

You'll need a HDMI monitor or TV to plug it into.  Most people are using it to connect to HeadPlays but it works great on a 25 inch (any size really) monitor too.  I use it both ways depending on what I'm doing.
