Good post, but may I suggest what would be more helpful, would be a list of devices and operating systems that work on each Phantom.  
I will start.  Phantom 3 Advanced - Samsung S Tab 10.5 running Android 5.2.  This tablet is too tall/wide to fit in the nice tablet holder, so I created a Z shaped extender using 1/8" plastic with a heat gun.

Hello there:
I have heard that the Samsung is unusable to fly with...so are you telling us you can fly with the tab s and you have no lag on lollipop 5.0.2 and it is available for all Samsung tabs...I was looking at the tab s 10.5...thoughts...?

The table is just a visual control of the bird.  The pics and videos are stored on the micro SD card.  So you dump them straight into your PC from the card.

Anyone who enjoys tinkering with tablets may find interest in this.  I use two Kindle Fire HD tablets, one 7" and one 8.9".  The 8.9" unit barely fits inside the provided tablet mount at a width of 9.45".  Regardless of screen size, if the tablet is larger than 9.5", it's a no-go.  Unit is a Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 ("Jem"), that is the 2nd gen unit from 2012.  Rooted with CM12.1, these are 'throwaway' tablets.  If the tablet flips out from the holder and smashes on the ground, I'm out less than $100.  Versus an important and expensive unit I use daily!  The 1.5GHz dual-core is just fast enough to handle the app with sufficient speed, and running the CM OS and no other background apps means there isn't other spontaneous processor demand on the tablet while flying.

Phantom 3 Advanced.
I am using Asus ZenFone 2 Laser (ZE500KG) with Android 5.0.2.
Screen is 5"
Not a lot of lag and far away less lag and crashes when disable video cache lol

I will probably grab a tablet in the future since i prefer flying with a big screen, i do like that with all of my other quadcopters with an analogue video signal.

Nexus 9 for a Phantom Standard. I put it on a tripod and it's great (most of the time). I don't have to carry the weight of the screen while flying, it's stable and best of all my wife can easily view it with me!

Apple iPad Air 2 with a 9.7 inch screen. Just barely fits, nice and snug in the stock mounting bracket and gives a nice, large screen to share visuals with friends and viewers. I got mine at Best Buy on sale (until Jan.16) for $375 (close to $400 after tax) and it has the thumb print feature and the A8x processor. Pretty happy with this one


Here's the link if you decide to buy one: iPad Air 2 (16GB - Wifi)

Wow that ipad is beautiful compared to the iphone 6 plus I am currently using. I am trying to figure out what is the cheapest way I can get a bigger screen, especially because I know that I will only be using it for flying, nothing else.
I have seen all the posts about what dji "says will work" but I also have seen others post how 100$ tablets work just fine. So I will admit that I am a little lost

I use an ipad air 2 and also Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.4 S.  My preference remains Android, which is nice and light, a reasonable size and it has a bright amoled screen and does as it is told. I only have both platforms because I recall the flight sim only being available on apple at some point in time and used it for that. I will keep both alive with Litchi offering more functions on Android and Autopilot being Apple only so far. Expensive R&D at my end, but worth knowing if you plan using third party apps such as Litchi with which you can do flight planning offline.

I don't know if it will fit in the holder BUT it doesn't matter anyways because it will not work with the GO app.I had a iPad 2 and had to sell it and get an iPad Air. For a great price, a NVIDIA Shield works well. Whatever you use, you'll need a sunshade for sunny days.

I bought it from Secraft. It's the controller tray for the P3 standard but I modified it so I can use both drones with it (Pro and standard). Since I have both.

You can swing this thing around in the air with no worries of it falling out. Very well engineered.

All I can say is awesome!

I usually use a Samsung Tab Pro 8.4.  I find the app ocassionly loses video signal and the android DJI GO app must be restarted to get video signal back.  Annoyingly I can fly fine but it also occassionly will trigger the lost signal RTH feature.  Happened today when it was only 30 feet away.

I just bought my Phantom 3 Advanced a month ago and decided to use an Apple iPad mini 3 that was on sale at Best Buy. It was the 128GB for $399. I liked having the extra storage for the photos and videos and normally that iPad sells for $599. Here are a couple of images of my controller set-up. I also replaced the device holder that came with my P3 with the Inspire 1 holder since it has an aluminum bracket and much more stable. I also use the DJI remote controller strap and the monitor hood when its sunny outside.
