I was looking to buy an iPad mini first generation, but i had a few questions before I buy on hopefully someone can answer them for me.
1.Do you need an iPad mini that has cellular data or just wifi?
2.Will it connect to my drone?

This is a quite common question. You do not need access to cellular data to fly a DJI drone. However a WiFi only version of an iPad does not have GPS reception capability, and you may want that for functions like follow me. A WiFi only iPad will still connect to your P3 Standard, because the WiFi connection is between the RC unit and the iPad, not the aircraft.

You wont need cellular to fly your P3S. It will connect just fine. Cellular is nice for not having to cache maps ahead of time and you'd have gps etc, but not necessary. Safe flying!

best best win win style

A TAB for Flying with no SIM CARD INSERTED ..

YOUR OWN handset which can provide HOTSPOT (just in case if the scence which it lock you at max 50m distance and 30m alt) which i often get this problem after changing to the next fresh battery to the AC..
Which den i will link my Flight Handset WIFI to my own Phone Hotspot to log out from DJI go app and re login again to gain back whats normal...(THE PROPER WAY I PRESUME WITHOUT ANY MOD)

Hello Anahoo, iPad Mini 1st generation is not recommended as you may get the incompatible message when downloading the APP. I'd suggest iPad Mini 2 or later versions. You can find the recommended list here: https://www.dji.com/phantom-3-st ... te_search#downloads
