I was trying to fly DJI Go on my old Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with poor results. Its not a recommended rig. My reasons for using a tablet were my old eyes.

I started with the little Galaxy S4 which is a decent  (albeit outdated) smart phone but not a very good monitor. The screen is too dark and seems crowded with the 'Go' app. It also suffers from anemic processor power and a limp-wristed wifi. I wanted a screen I could view without squinting. Searching around, I read about pilots using a Galaxy Tab S2 and Litchi. Some with mixed results, usually before the latest Android update. I bought a Tab S2 64G running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and plan to strip it of bloatware and disable apps that I can't uninstall. I'll direct it to 'forget' the household wifi. It will be a pretty much dedicated Litchi device.


I'm looking for pilots with recent experience flying the P3S/Tab S2 and Litchi. Please share your thoughts.

I'm looking at you, Dirty Bird.

I fly the P3S exclusively on Litchi my tablet is an Asus zenpad S8 a bit more powerful than the Tab 2, the screen is so much more 'alive' than the Tab 2 and it runs Litchi like a dream. Home wifi is used to update my offline Google maps, used when flying. I have a Tab 2 7" with DJI Go installed, that was my first tablet for flying the P3S but I was never happy with it. I now only use the Tab 2 for any updates, not that I have done any for over a year.

Thanks! I just installed Litchi on my old Galaxy 10.1 as an experiment. Everything I see so far says it will work. It even downloaded my first mission. I'll find out tomorrow if it isn't too windy.

Hello and good day Dumbthumbs. Thank you for the inquiry. Upon checking the mobile device ( Samsung Galaxy  Tab S2 ). I am glad to say that the said mobile device is listed as a recommended mobile device for the DJI Phantom 3 Standard. For reference I will post the list of recommended mobile device for your DJI Phantom 3 Standard. DJI also recommends using the DJI Go for your DJI Phantom 3 Standard for compatibility and reliability. Have a safe and happy flying. Thank you.

Thank you, Stephen. I wanted a tablet with more processor power and capacity than my older Samsung tab 10.1.
An octa-core processor? Yes, I guess that's a thing.
