I was hoping to use the wifi connection between the RX100 and iPhone, but it seems like the range on that is about 30' max, making it useless for copter use.

You don't want to use wifi to view the images from the RX100..

Wifi is 2.4ghz, and from what I have read, there's a decent chance the wifi radio will interfere with the Phantom R/C radio (the Phantom I), which also uses the 2.4ghz band.

The Phantom II uses a 5.8ghz R/C radio, so in that case, you would be fine.
