Newbie to the quad world. I had hoped that my Nexus 7 (original) would work for the P3 but apparantly it may not be compatible as I can't see DJI Pilot on the Play Store and only the Nexus 7 II is listed on the Pilot compatibility page. If I am going to have to invest in another tablet are there suggestions for ones that may wiork best on the controller in real life conditions? I don't want to break the bank but I don't want to waste money on something that won't work well in the field or may not work for future software upgrades either. Any suggestions for optimum Android devices?

the 2013 model of the Nexus 7 is only $165 on amazon. Pretty sure it should be able to handle the app.

Didn't realize the Galaxy had come down to that price range.  Good suggestions both as I also did not realize that the newer 7 was that improved either.  Ordering a factory reconditioned Galaxy 8.4 for the stronger processor and great screen edge.  Future proofing. Thanks to both of you for the help.

I heard on a forum that DJI hasn't rolled out the fight simulator on Android, only IOS.  Is that still true and if so, wouldn't an iPad mini be a better choice? And no, I'm not an Apple fan. I have a Galaxy Tab S 8.4 that I plan on using.

On the DJI specs page for the P3 it only mentions two Samsung products that are currently recommended for use with the DJI Pilot App.  The Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Note 3.   I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7" that I've been using with my Vision + that I want to use with the P3.  Does the "recommended" mean that we might have some issues with using something other than the S5 or Note 3?  I'll be using this on the P3 Pro if that makes any difference.    Thanks for the help...

Tab 4 works

I have a Tab 4 and the dji Pilot app I downloaded has only Inspire info and videos. There is no pilot training simulator. Seems worthless for P3.

The only thing that seems to work is the Map. Yep, there's my house. Great.

Now what??????

Hi there
Has anyone used the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 8" (SM-T365Y) with the Phantom 3? Is there any reason why this wouldn't work?

I've currently got the original Nexus 7 (which works with the Pilot app), but I want a tablet that is android, weather proof and GPS.

Cheers

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 running 4.2.2 and it works fine with my P3 Advanced. I also have an iPad Air and it will fit in the holder on the DJI controller. The size and weight of the Tab 3 is preferred though.

Apple is layed out nicer, has more options, and even gives the # of satellites you're connected to, android doesn't.

Tab 4 works

My Tab2 works like this also, with the drone on the ground and only a few feet away, but when I fly out beyond 0.5km the video freezes and the app becomes unresponsive. Have you flown any distance with the Tab4 and how is the video feed at a distance?

Sorry for the late response. Overall the app ran good on my Tab 3, however there was lag back to the tablet even after changing the video feed settings. The lag was mildly annoying but I wouldn't describe it as really bad.
Before the Android app update I caved and shelled out for a dedicated iPad Mini 2. Not an Apple fan but at the time the iOS app had more features and steady video feed. Only problem with the Mini 2 now is occasional overheating which causes reduced video quality.

That's really odd isn't it

The tablet is pretty much an interactive screen, nothing more. It gets the video feed from the aircraft via the RC using the Lightbridge connection and simply sends it to the tablet. As such, distance shouldn't really make a difference

I have a Tab S 8.4 that performs extremely inconsistently with my Inspire 1 and my Phantom 3 Pro, to the point where I nearly lost the Inspire after losing video signal completely. I'm not sure if the Tab S isn't powerful enough to render the video feed, or if it was caused by something else, but I'm sticking to my iPhone 6 Plus for flights from now on.
