    Am trying to get my Movi5 configured using the GUI in the iPhone app and nothing I do will get it seen by my laptop or iphone. I installed the app in my phone and it keeps saying the device needs to be connected via wireless, but it won't connect! The laptop wireless sees the Movi but the option to connect is grayed out. Does anyone know the fix for this issue? Also, not sure how to get the program for the laptop. The iPhone program was in the app store but it's only for mobile devices. If someone could bail me out here it will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks - that's what I need…. I don't understand why Freefly would sell the Movi without the means to program it. Seems obvious that should be a part of the package. Thanks for helping me get on the right path...

    The iphone app has only released recently i think in future models they will incorporated in to the movi itself. You can program it with-out the wifi adaptor just need the right tools

    This one that Quadcopter offers is the same one Movi has for 50% less?

    I know I am new. With the ease and use of bluetooth app what advantages would using a Wifi give you? I see its another way to connect, but there must be a reason one would want to go that route.

    Alot of people carry iphones with them so instead of carrying around your andriod pad or your battery goes flat you have another way of connecting to the movi
