Hi all,

I'm mid flow in gaining enough experience to fly my Nex5 with a 16mm lense but shooting direct down to the ground.

Do you know if there is a way of bouncing the live view off the Nex5 to an iPad so I can see what the Nex5 is seeing so I can hit the remote shutter to get my desired shot.

Any help will be really appreciated.

You can use Slingbox and "sling" it to your iPad, but that means you need a server that would need to be attached to the FPV receiver. Easiest way is to just switch to a Windows tablet or laptop that can directly attach to the FPV gear.

Thanks Mike,

Will I need a second camera or can I work this off the nex5?

I just found this product today.  I would like to buy it to try it, but its like $1500 USD.


I'm not that familiar with the Nex5. Does it have a composite video out while recording? If not, you can get an FPV kit that has a tiny camera with it like this one.


Hey Kristian,

Sorry for going off topic. But am very curious to see if you did end up finding a way of controlling the camera zoom remotely?
