Minty Boost Data Pass Though

by mikevens on Sat Feb 27, 2016 12:44 pm

I fly a Phantom 3 UAV (drone) and it uses an iPhone/iPad plugged in (with
the USB cable) to the remote control as a display. The problem is that the
power drain is significant.

Is it possible to modify the Minty Boost so that the iPhone can be connected
to the Phantom remote control for data at the same time as it is charged
from the Minty Boost?

The minty boost uses resistors on the data lines to tell the iPhone a proper charger is connected. I'm sure there is a way to create a pass through but how simple it would be that I don't know.
