I have a "Phantom DJI" quadcopter with a lot of upgrades, including a "Fatshark predator" "FPV" system which basically allows me to view VGA quality video, live, from a gopro mounted on the quadcopter. The fatshark comes with a so-so video quality "virtual boy" looking pair of goggles that doubles as the receiver itself.
This headset/receiver has a 1/16th inch 3 ring RCA A/V output jack that can go to a video monitor. The kit includes a cable which can be plugged into a traditional RCA jack setup.
So my question is, is there any way to transmit rca video signal to an ipad? For example, one or more "proxies" as a solution could be reasonable. Transmitting the last leg to the ipad via some internet protocol may work for example.
The appeal of using the ipad is that it is a high resolution battery powered monitor which I already own. I'll be in the field with this thing and the portability is of particular interest.
I consider solutions requiring jailbreaking reasonable answers though this is not preferred for obvious reasons. Also, low cost android tablet solutions are equally reasonable. I've already ordered an RCA-to-hdmi converter which should arrive shortly.
