    Has anyone tried connecting a Bluetooth gamepad to their iPhone/iPad and then seeing if you can control the Breeze in Pilot mode?

    If not, then this would be a GREAT feature for a future firmware upgrade.

    Thanks

    Plan to try it with a hardwired connection to my Android. Apple is out, besides their WiFi is "questionable" at best and has been for years.

    Hi guys, just bought My first drone, and it's a Breeze. Yesterday I got an update in the app "breeze cam" with fpv mode. But My question is, what gamepad is compatible with the "breeze"? I use My Ipad pro for flying.

    Ok, so the hunt for a working gamepad goes on then. Could be a problem with Apple and IOS and how they accept undefined parts from other producers.

    As of the new iOS app update today it's added FPV and what looks to be Bluetooth gamepad support. I haven't seen any details other than what's in the app and FPV setup walk through.

    It would seem that Yuneec has some kind of game pad hooked up. This was at the UK Drone Show

    There is an article on Dronelife.com on the controller from Yuneec. Controller and phone holder goggles for $69.99. Wouldn't let me link.

    I ordered the Yuneec joystick and goggles directly from Yuneec. It shipped yesterday and I should have next week.

    If you go to his youtube channel this is what he had to say:
    It's an Ipad mini inside of a rugged case

    I received the Yuneec FPV Controller and goggles today. I don't have a lot of time right now but wanted to get the initial impressions out. The kit comes with the controller, goggles and phone mounting bracket.

    The remote is the GameSir G3 remote like you'd find on Amazon for about $30 but with the Yuneec label printed on it. I've attached a picture of the front and back of the remote. The back picture shows the button combo to connect to the app/phone for Android (A + Home) and iOS (Y + Home). For the Breeze you need to use the Power button as the Home button. The power button is the blue button in the middle of the two joysticks.

    I've also included a photo from the app of what you get when you push the R2 button. This will give you all the basic commands for using the controller.

    I only flew inside as it was too late when I got home and winter here in Wisconsin after 6 inches of snow yesterday. I spent a few minutes hovering around and the Breeze seemed to respond very well except for drifting inside a little. To take off you need to hold down the Start button (10 o'clock to the "X" button) for 3 seconds. There will be a 3-2-1 countdown displayed on the phone as well. You also need to hold the Start button down to land. I need to maneuver to where I was going to land and then hold the button. Pulling the joystick down would not land the Breeze.

    The googles I didn't get anytime with tonight. They are pretty simple but the one good thing is I could keep my case on my iPhone 7+ and the clamp held the phone in place very well. Also the removal adapter used to mount your phone to the controller is very simple but works well. It also holds my iPhone 7+ with the case on.

    That's all I've got time for tonight. Let me know if you have specific questions.
