Having spent some time swapping back and forth between the iPad Mini and CrystalSky 5.5, I have uncovered some issues that impact the Inspire 2 only with the CS.
First one is covered in another post. When starting up the I2, the CS reports that a data update is needed, and it shows how to connect the USB cable to perform the update. No update is possible, and connecting the I2 does nothing.  Worse, it occasionally also report inconsistent firmware even though the CS is updated, and the I2 and controller are confirmed as updated (connected to an iPad to test).

Next is a wireless interference issue that does not occur on the iPad. When using the I2 and CS 5.5, I get frequent reports of strong wireless interference, and a very pronounced decrease in range when using 2.4G.  Flying LOS over open water from a beach with no wireless devices in the area, the I2's effective range dropped to less than 3000' when using the I2. Switching to the iPad Mini cleared the error, and increased the effective range to well over a mile before I stopped testing.  Again, aside from the CS 5.5 and I2 system, there were no other wireless devices in the area. No homes with beefy networks, no mobile phones (that was my first guess at a culprit).   Changing from the CS 5.5 back to the iPad mini completely resolved the interference, update issue, and firmware warning.

I do get the "data update" pop-up, but I haven't experienced the interferences... but I haven't flown it more than 1500ft away either in a wireless free zone. Thanks for posting the screens!
