GP5 Black with Drone: use APP or Smart Remote?

I am about to configure a drone with a gimbal for video and, hopefully, stills.  This setup will NOT have its own remote software or hardware.

What kind of range can I expect with the GP5 Black and the GP app on an iPhone?

Will the smart remote have a longer range?

 

Any futher advice on controlling the camera on a drone would be appreciated.

 

thanks much.

Hi @66dellwood,

 

In general the Smart Remote will have a longer range than the GoPro App. Some other users here may have some suggestions for how best to control the camera when on your drone.

 

Best,

Ryan
