Anyone using iPad Mini 4 with their Mavic? Does it fit in the controller?

Cheer Motty! Had a look at a couple of the videos, not the most elegant of solutions but I've just ordered my iPad mini 4, picking it up tomorrow.

It might not look elegant, but the fit and feel of the total assembly works very well.  I would prefer it over any sort of bolt-on tablet holder which can block the site line to the RC.  IPad Mini 4 fits just right in my opinion and very snug.  Make sure you get yourself a short (6") right-angled lightning/USB cable.

Thanks Petroboy. Picking up my iPad mini 4 tomorrow from the Apple Store, so will take my controller with me to sort out best cable length, Had a short lightning cable for my Phantom 4 but sold it with the Phantom....doh!

As I mentioned, 6" works best.  I had a 12" cable but it is too long.  There are links posted for the shorter ones on Amazon etc. if Apple doesn't have what you need.

Also, make sure you completely remove the DJI short cable and the little square plastic "slider" on the left hand side of the controller before inserting the IPad Mini.

Take your 12" one and cut it....it's simple..took me about 15 mins to cut, strip the wires, solder and shrink wrap....I stripped the wires back and shrinked wrapped each one then did another wrap over it all to look good...$0 ...just saying.

The beauty of the MAVIC PRO is the controller... I would not change it for anything...   

Otherwise go get a P4P
