Hi ,

I am interested about the mavic but less about paying a phone plan since i don't need a smart phone everyday.

Question: Could i buy a phone and use it without a phone plan ? Just using it for flight view, could this be possible ?

Mathieu from Canada

Thanks !

ps: Are you using your phone not connected to the network and fly fine ?  Let me know i am a newbie !

Sure!

It is the same thing when you use an iPad with a Phantom.

This is the final argument between the Karma and the Mavic ! I will choose the mavic and use a phone
without a plan.

It's gonna need to be a decent phone though - check the compatibility specs

I used to use a NVIDIA Shield K with the Phantom, for $200 I think that's the least expensive device.
I am waiting conformation that it works well with the Mavic.

it's about the same as all the others. In direct sunlight you can't see the screen on any device.
If you want to use a larger device other than a phone, many solutions will be offered. Here's one that one of our guys quickly came up with.
