    I have an IPhone 6 Plus and it works fine, but I'm still on iOS 8 haven't upgraded to iOS 9 but I would doubt that would make a difference

    The camera is 192.168.42.1 the gateway.
    the st10 will be issued 192.168.42.2 thru DHCP, the next available IP.
    your iphone requests an IP, and gets the next available IP of 192.168.42.3.
    if a friend fires up his iphone also, it will get 192.168.42.4

    UPDATE: Using my IPAD (Version 1), I entered 192.168.42.1 into the Safari browser after connection was made to the camera on the Q500 4K. SUCCESS!!!! When I saw the camera's SSID in the possible networks during the WiFi connection, I selected the CGO3 SSID, and it immediately asked for the Password. Upon entering 0
    Using my IPad (Version1), I connected to the camera's SSID network via the Safari browser, and it immediately asked for the password. I entered 1234567890, and it finally connected because I saw the file structure on the SD card in the camera (first time that has happened). SUCCESS!!!!!

    CONCLUSIONS:

    1. It appears any version of the IPad must work because I have the first one with the lower resolution camera.

    2. Without the ST10+ controller turned ON, the Safari browser did connect to the camera's SSID using the IP address of 192.168.42.1. Once that happened, entering the password 1234567890 took me straight to the file structure within the camera's SD card. SUCCESS!!!!!

    CONCLUSIONS:

    1. Any IPad should be able to use the above process as I have the first IPad made.

    2. Did not have to have the ST10+ controller turned on to access the camera's network.

    3. My IPad had IOS 9.0 installed (don't know if that had any impact in the connection process). All I know is that it worked.

    4. My laptop did connect to the camera's network, but it never gave me the option to enter the password to camera's network. Therefore, it can't get to the SD card. So that approach is possibly a DEAD END for laptops.

    5. I don't have any files on my SD card at the moment. My editing software is on my laptop so I guess I will move the video files from my SD card to my Dropbox storage then download those files to my laptop.

    6. Final step would be to delete the video files from the SD card in preparation for the next flying session. However, it might be simpler and faster to just use the SD adapter to place the SD card in it for immediate use on the laptop.

    COMMENT: It's nice to know I now have another option to access the files in the camera. Howeve, I would like to see anyone's rationale as to why you need access to the SD card's files via WiFi when simply moving the card to a laptop would be less time consuming. Your thoughts???

    the only advantage for me would be trying to get that just right picture I could see it on my phone or ipad before heading back home only to find out it was not what I was after. :)

    AGREED! When need the capability to play the video directly to the controller's screen to see if it looks great or needs to be recorded again!

    Come on YUNEEC! You are very smart technicians who can make things happen. Please bring that capability to fruition! WE WOULD LOVE IT! Give us more flexibility in determining if a video looks decent enough to keep before leaving the scene. I may only get one chance to take the video. Hate to get back from a vacation and find out the videos were messed up for one reason or another! Praying someone at YUNEEC is reading this forum.

    you need the routers ip address of the camera not actually the ip address What that I I can't say for sure but it would appear to be ending in 1 Just my thoughts...

    Any web browser should be able to do this. Think of the camera as a wifi router that also serves up a webpage. You can also get to the settings on your home wifi router using a similar method.

    Has anyone pulled video over this connection? How fast is it?

    I have, it works fine, except for the occasional screen blanking. I use VLC, and load streaming media.

    In the network URL:

    rtsp://192.168.42.1/live

    Tonight I ran my Surface Pro and Galaxy S6 on the video.

    No screen blanking, was pretty good video, it washed out on the tablet for a short time, then all was good.

    Loved this tip, but it didn't work for me either.....iPhone 6 and iPad Air. It's a pain to take the card out every time I want to download what I shot, and this would be sweet.

    When I bounce the video to my iPad, the lag time gets worse in both the trans and the phone.

    can you use the wifi adapter to take the laptop to the field so other people can see what the camera sees? or is the range of the adapter pretty small?

    If I remember correctly I've read here on the forum or watched a YouTube video and when you are sharing the WiFi with your ST10+ and another device (like this adapter connected to laptop or tablet) it reduces the range but I'm not 100% sure on that one. I'm sure others will post up that have tried it and how it worked out. I'm sure the small adapter wouldn't have the range that the ST10+ controller would have. I've seen some of the AC band 5.8 Ghz adapters that have the rubber antenna on them so those would have longer range (eBay)- just make sure they are not just for 802.11 b/g/n. They have to say AC and 5 Ghz in the description.
    Either this one from China: http://www.ebay.com/itm/802-11AC-2-...203227?hash=item4aedeb569b:g:8FwAAOSw3ydVuam1

    *this one from USA looks better to me: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Extend-your...908280?hash=item2353825ef8:g:xWYAAOSwyQtVizEp

    Thanks Davidncldearlaketx.
    So is this 'adapter' is what yuneec warns of causing even more lag to the st10? or is the lag caused by running a second device directly off the st10?

    StarLog, I can see the Directory and the content of 100MEDIA on my iPad but can't play the video. I tried through VLC and VLC Streaming. Could you give me the step by step to play the video. Cheers and thanks.

    From my LG G3 I go in through the CGO app, select Camera, select the SD card, chose Image or Video, long press on an image or video and select download.
