Default Gear VR for FPV?

Hi gang.
Is there a way to use gear VR and my Galaxy S7 for viewing FPV?
I started with nothing and still have most of that left.
DX7, 450 Frankenbird, 500 Align, Blade Nano CPs, Blade Inductrix. Chase 360, and F450 quad.

Default Samsung Gear for VR

Not used Samsungs VR headset but I bought a tmSISKINVR headset, £20 from my local petrol station. I have manged to cram an Easy Cap without its case and a Boscam rx in the headset. Dont know about the size constraints of the Samsung kit. Just an idea. Reduced all the wiring for a custom fit, only plugs are power in and an On-The-Go type connector for my Samsung S6. Hope this gives you an idea. Custom built, seems ok, using a Mobius as im only flying a slow 3.5mtr open class glider so the latency is not a great problem, will rip the headset off to land, I like a better all-round idea of whats going on around me when I land. Hope this helps Pete, all the best, Rob
Take a look, this was my idea....
