Does the Parrot Minidrone Hardware Support Package support the usage of Flypad and/or streaming video from the Parrot Mambo drone to smartphone in R2020a?

With the Parrot Minidrones Support Package from Simulink
it is possible to develop the algorithm and directly interact with the drone and download the code with Simulink. For example, you can use a flight Controller Interface or the keyboard to control the drone.
What I want to know is if the Parrot Flytab could also be used with code generated from Simulink?
So I want to be able to control the drone outside without having a wifi connection between the drone and my computer.
Additionally, I‘m interested in the camera for the Mambo drone.
So I want to know if it is possible to stream the video to my Smartphone if I‘m using my own Simulink flight algorithm instead of standard Software?

The Keyboard control block shipped in R2019a can allow the user to control the drone from Simulink:
The Parrot Flypad won't work with the custom Parrot firmware that is shipped with Simulink Hardware Support Package for Parrot. The MATLAB answer reply here is correct
With regard to the camera, the Parrot Hardware Support Package supports obtaining the downward-facing camera data in Simulink and doing image processing. See this topic:
and this example:
However, streaming video of the downward-facing camera to host PC/smartphone is not available.
