Hola from Spain
been flying now for about a year with the above and wouldn't want to fly any other way, actually in the bird flying it is the most involving for me just like fpv quad racers use, see more, no problems with sunlight, can flip back to main Litchi screen to see, warnings etc.
Do screen recordings for other people to watch it VR on youtube etc.
Sometimes I would like to share what Im viewing with a friend, does anyone know If I put a USB splitter on can the live feed be directed to 2 phones with litchi on?
I suppose i can get one and try it out but may not work at all.

Hola coullit!

Unfortunately you cannot just "split" usb connections to pull the video. However you can cast your phone's screen to another phone or groups of devices.

If you are using an Android based phone you can use screen mirroring built in.. Sometimes it will be listed as Miracast, Allcast(Samsung) or just Cast to a device.

If you are using an Apple device you would use Airplay to mirror you display to an apple TV or another device.

There is one further possibility by using the DJI goggles. You may either use two DJI goggles on the same Mavic or use one set of goggles combined with Litchi running on your phone in VR mode. One further advantage is, it's cable-free.
And as I have used Litchi in VR mode since early december I can say, using the DJI goggles is a new experience in image quality compared to VR goggles. Meanwhile I am using Litchi with (foldable) VR goggles only as a backup system for situations where I don't want to carry the more bulky DJI goggles with me.
I am using the DJI goggles now even for my other standard analog 5.8GHz FPV crafts, by using an external receiver and a CVBS to HDMI converter.

Ive also found now I can click HD live feed whereas I couldn't before only with my xioami note 4 with has an HD 1080p screen the LG is less. Xioami is away having screen repaired it developed some white bubbles in it and sent it back to power planet here in Spain where I bought it, will comment later if screen res is better although found it good before especially in HD.

Ive now updated both i.e. Goapp4 to latest and Litchi to latest firmwares.
Its not as good as it was in VR, blocking in the screen, static and recording video is delayed.
Ive made a video of it and will upload.
Ive been in contact with Litchi support by email, which they respond to maybe daily, who told me to do this.
I have requested best previous version of Litchi before the latest go app 4 but still await it.
My true findings
