    There doesn't seem to be a definitive list as to which phones/tablets are compatible with the CGO3 camera. So I figured we could create a community list of what we have tried and if it worked or not. I don't know if there is any compatibility issues with the CGO2 cameras, but I guess there is no reason to not include experiences with that camera too if you want to add it.

    Other possible issues:
    As @Dr Phibes wrote in this post:

    The reason you are encountering this problem is because of the difference in the part/section of 5.8ghz wifi band used by the US and the EU. When you upgraded (and it is an upgrade fro greater video range) to the US firmware your camera Vtx could not longer 'see' you EU phone because it now looking in the wrong place for a wifi connection. I have the same issue with my EU version Galaxt S3 and Experia M2. These leaves you with these options:

    1) Change back from 'Standard' (US) to EU firmware and live with half the video range (approx. 300m)
    2) Change back from 'Standard' (US) to EU firmware and increase video range by fitting one of the many available antenna modifying kits (to the Q500 and/or ST10).
    3) Keep the Standard firmware, enjoy the extended range and forget the steady grip (Ebay anyone?)
    4) Keep the Standard firmware and buy another US spec phone just for the steady grip.
    5) Keep the Standard firmware and use the ST10(+) to operate the steady grip (cumbersome but some do this).

    Other might suggest further options but, in any case, I am at option 3 at the moment. In my opinion this whole affair regarding the Steady Grip is far from satisfactory. In Yuneec's defence they are on this occasion just complying with EU regulations regarding Vtx power output. However, it isn't at all clear why both versions of the firmware (Standard and EU) cannot be made to connect to either end of the 5.8ghz range.

    Samsung Galaxy S5 works fine. There is quite a bit of lag in the feed, but everything works. I'm in Orlando, FL, U.S.A.

    I have the Samsung Tab A and it sees the CGO3 but drops out as soon as you get the app going, annoying.

    hi
    staten island , new york U.S.A.
    i used my grandsons i phone 6 and the viedo and snapshot worked great he downloaded the app fast and setup was up and running in seconds .
    my only consern is the audio , mine is very low ( also a hiss )when on the q500 on the steadygrip .
    i was told by yuneec that because the cgo3 has a cooling fan the auido is low .

    my sony tablet S (sgpt112) wont work android version 4.03
    tablet le pan tc802a wont work android version 4.2.2
    cell phone samsung sch-s738c wont work android version 4.04

    i also read that you need android version 5.0 or greator to work

    I have the Galaxy S4, and although it connected originally, it dropped off right away. I also have the Galaxy tab 10.1 (android) and it is not compatible with the CG03, but is with the CG02 app.
    Just went onto Play Store, and can't even find the CG03 app now.

    Hi all. Note 4 EU version. Can connect to camera wifi and then I can open the app. It shows the picture for approx 10 seconds then crashes. It didnt work at all until I selected my home wifi and went to "forget network". Then at least I could connect to the wifi.

    I am using the Samsung Galaxy S 6 and the app runs fine. The only problem I have is even when you turn the sound on it does not work.

    the sound from this camera is low because of the fan in the cgo3 if they raise the volume all you would hear would be a louder fan , this is what yuneec C S has told me a couple of times i have spoken to the techs .

    France, the CG02 can not connect with the Samsung Galaxy S3 and S5 is because of French regulations.

    Using the Samsung tab pro 8.4 it connected to the CGO3 without any trouble, although picture quality wasn't much to be desired.

    My galaxy S5 was pretty much the same, haven't bothered with my Mrs's galaxy S3 yet as she can use my tab.

    S5 works in Lithuania, just if wi-fi connection is lost, it crashes and have to restart the app.

    Works with the HTC one but there seem to be a few problems with it disconnecting and skewing the camera orientation
