Hi, first post here but have referenced the forum numerous times.

Has anyone seen the difference between the 7.85" Crystal Sky High Brightness and the Ultra Brightness monitors?  I'm just pondering if its really worth the wait and extra $$$.  Right now I'm using an ipad mini 4 which is fine with my hood but it overheats like CRAZY out here in the Texas heat.

Sorry if this has been posted already, I wasn't able to find a comparison.

Thanks!

So apparently the ipad mini 4 is around 440 cd/m2 brightness, where the CrystalSky High Brightness is at 1000 cd/m2.  That's over twice as bright!

That's great as long as there are no over heating issues.

If you need brightness and no overheating then CrystalSky is the only option in the price range (it has a built in fan). If you need it to work like a tablet and use other apps it might now work for you.

Really appreciate it.  I found Toms Tech review as well.

Ya that pretty much the only bummer cause I do use Hanger Autopilot for Panos.  I really need to stop auto panos, but I could still use my iphone for that anyway.  

Oh and I prefer to use my bluetooth headset when I fly to listen to the app (and keep people from talking to me) - doesn't appear to have bluetooth capability.

For audio you could get a bluetooth dongle, or use wired headphones.

Thank You @dronesinairs for posting that review!  I have the 7.85 Ultra on pre-order and was really impressed with the review and the details he covered.

Dongle is the way to go for sure - never using wired headphones again!  LOL, spoiled right?  For sure the dongle will work on the CrystalSky?  Just seems crazy a $600 monitor doesn't have Bluetooth.

Something like this should work fine.

Ya that doesn't thrill me cause it sticks out too much.  I'm sure it would work though.  I was thinking maybe the usb connection would work?  You can find them that set much more flush.

Yes, the supplied adapter si cumbersome. You could probably find or make a short cable that is flush.
Then you just stick the dongle somewhere suitable.

Ya, I'm sure I'll figure something out.  Thanks.

So I just finished talking to DJI support and they said Bluetooth and Bluetooth dongles are not supported, but that 4K Dongles are, and that I should try it and see.  LOL, they are cheap so I'll give it a shot.

Thanx for a great review and solving the crucial overheating question...
So far it seems: Crystalsky Don't overheat at all.
Please correct me if wrong.
