Hi Trox, Mi Pad 2 might be not powerful enough and might be incompatible.

it looks like dji doesn't do a lot of testing on the non Apple products to see what devices are in fact compatible or not. Since the MI PAD is listed as compatible but the MI PAD 2 is not, I would look at the specs on the MI PAD and would guess that if the specs are equal to or greater (i.e. CPU processer speed, video, OS etc...) on the MI PAD 2 that you will be fine.

I asked the same question about the Samsung TAB A 7" as it is not a listed device but found out from another forum member that had one and has tested it on both  the dji GO and dji GO 4 apps and it works perfectly. So I know there are lots of devices that are likely compatible but are not listed.

Hi,
i am also interested in buying am Mi Pad 2 only for using it in the Mavic Pro.
It sounds like the perfect tablet for the Mavic. perfect size, low cost, good screen, ....
does it have enough power?? is it compatible to the GO4 App?

I've been looking into the Chinese tablets too.  The big negative with the Mi Pad 2 is that it doesn't have GPS.  For me, that's a deal breaker because it eliminates some important (for me) features.

for me, i dont need GPS in my tablet for flying a drone.
i think, most cheap tablets have a bad screen. And brightness and contrast are important for a drone tablet.
the Mi Pad 2 has a good screen, right?
i think the Mi Pad 2 is a great deal for that price.
especially it is hard to find another android tablet that will fit to the mavic remote.
so there are only 3 questions:
- will it work fine with the GO4 App?
- does it have enough power to run everything smoothly?
- does it fit to the mavic remote?
thanks.
