I can't compare the two because I've only used the Ipad Air 2.  It's been 3 months and I've had no issues.  Bought a non glare protective cover and made my own sunshade for about $1.00.  I haven't had to use the sun shade yet as the anti-glare cover seems to work great.

Getting a neck-strap is a must!

I wish there was an easy way to connect some sort of neck-strap  ...

Try a toshare lanyard,  bought a dji harness but haven't tried it yet, really like the lanyard, a must for a bird in hand.

I was using my iPad Air 2 until I noticed that it was damaging the bracket that holds it.  Now, I have gone back to using my IPhone 6 +.  On a related note, the newest app update fixed the battery issue.

I have 2 air's, 2 mini's and a NVidia shield. The mini gets the most use because of it's size and balance on the controller.

Be aware that some application to control the drone that are coming out "REQUIRES" that you have 2GB of ram so that puts the mini3 to a No no ... I have a mini3 and I got problems with some applications and the amount of RAM is the problem so I'll be switching for a Mini4 probably because I like the lightweight and the possibility to add a big casing to protect it and still been able to clip it on the bracket

The Mini 2 overheats in the sun on hot days (95+F). This causes video to drop out and is a severe safety hazard. I am waiting patiently to see if a Mini 4 with a decent performance upgrade is released this September/October (fingers crossed). If not then I may consider the smaller iPad Pro or wait until next spring to see if anything better comes along.

Ipad Mini 4 128gb Cellular here. I tend to buy at the top of the curve. I also have a iPad Air2, I find the screen easier to look at obviously but it's pretty wobbly and awkward in my opinion.

You can still store a iPad Air in the DJI hardshell backpack as I do that. You just lift the top cover out of the foam and I keep my iPad Air and sun shade in there.

I do not have it anymore. It's very easy, just open unzip the entire case and lift the top cover away from the foam and that's your storage area.

If you do not have a case on the iPad or just the tiny thin cover it will fit just fine and will zip up too. I did that for close to a year and it worked great.
I kept the iPad Air and folding soft HoodiVision Padhat sunshade inside it.

Yes, just pull the foam out just a bit from the top and you will see. It should not be glued and free to remove.

Mini 3 is really no better tan a Mini 2. Same amount of memory. If you step up you should step to the Mini 4 because you get 2gb of memory and a barometer.

We'll see. Seems to be some speculation that there isn't going to be one this go-around. Guess we'll know in a week or two. .

Hello from Sunny (well what passes for sun) Scotland. New P3/4k pilot taxi-ing into position. Documents read, batteries charged up and had a prowl through the forum.

After going through all this thread it looks like the Credit Card is about to take another hammering and not getting put away ... just yet.

From what I have read so far, I 'need' the Wi-Fi and Cellular facility for all the 'Goody Things'.

So, would the iPad Mini2 with WiFi & Cell be up to the job?
Will I need to buy any more kit such as a connecting cable of some sort between the iPad and Control or is there a supplied connector?

Thanks.

Your iPad Mini 2 with cellular should suffice. You can use your iPad's current lightning cable, but you may want to look into something a tad shorter to limit the amount of tangling that tends to happen.
