Hi,

I currently use the Mavic and nexus 6p and frustrating is an understatement regarding usability in terms of crashing. I feel DJI havent put enough resources into their android build, I have heard iOS is so much smoother and flawless.

Anyway, I am deciding with ipad mini to purchase, as I know that the version 1 cannot run DJI GO, and considering either 2 or 3. Does anyone use ipad mini currently with their DJI GO?

iPad Mini 4 Cellular/WiFi just works a dream, and fits like a glove in RC
I do not have a SIM Card in the iPad.

I got the Cellular/WiFi version because of it's built in GPS.
When I need an Internet connection, I either:
Connect at home to do updates, or tether to my mobile when out.

My mini 2 32GB WiFi works real good, but i just upgraded to mini 4 128GB WiFi. I was not having any problems in particular, just wanted more power. All mini's fit the controller perfectly...

How many GB's are necessary for the iPad mini 4?
Is 16GB enough?

I just got a 16gb wifi cell version cause they are cheaper on the used market then the wifi version.  Anyway I have no issues and also had a 6p that was unusable.  Personally I don't cache a lot of video of do anything with the video on the ipad itself so the size is irrelevant to me.  Others may chime in with reasons that larger gb version is better.  But so far for me 16 has been enough.  I use it exclusively for MP.

I am using mini 4 WIFI 128gb at the moment. I don't use follow me mode and don't change Home point so there is no problems at all.
If I need follow me mode later, I can buy a bluetooth GPS receiver to add on the mini 4.

Hello, I am sorry for your difficulties. For the app crashing on your Google Nexus 6p, could you please try to reinstall the latest version and try again? Please note to do a backup like syncing the flight record and saving the pics and videos before your reinstallation. Or please provide the info below and I'll transfer it to our engineers to check.
1. Operations before and when the Android device crashes
2. Aircraft model
3. Android version number
4. DJI GO app’s version number (shown under Settings of Me in the app)
5. Crash log, (connect the device to the computer to export it: /sdcard/DJI/dji.go.v4 /LOG/CRASH)
6. Your DJI account
Thank you so much of your help.
And for the iPad mini, please kindly note that the first generation will not work properly with DJI GO 4, please refer to the compatible device list below. Thanks. devide support list.png
