Can someone help me and tell me which tablet I should buy or what brands are compatible with the DJI GO app. I have had to send two tablets back because not compatible. Do they have to have a certain kind of operating system, If anyone has a list of what will and what won't work as far as brands would be greatly appreciated.

I use an iPad mini 4 with cellular connectivity. Love it. I've heard of people using mini 2's as well. Not 100% if you need the cellular model for gps maybe someone else does. I've also heard the nvidia tablets work perfectly as well.

The Nexus 7 , 2013 version, is supposed to be a kickass tablet. I have one on the way so I can't say for positive. However, I did a bunch of research before pulling the trigger and the Nexus 7 came out the clear winner among Phantom pilots.

I think the least expensive one that works well if you want Android is the Nvidia shield K. For iOS I have an iPad Air and it works great.

I use a mini 4 with cellular and it works fantastic. Just be sure to use the factory cable to connect as I have suffered issues with the third party cables.

since my galaxy note 4 cannot fit on xiro (max 5'5 inch to fit on holder) and i've to carrying 2 cellphones for playing both drone (dji & xiro), I guess not as specific brand you have to buy, I buy cheap cellphone galaxy s7 (clone) for $ 80, i got smooth fpv (no lagg, no app crash, no force close..etc etc) like experienced people here

so i think its no need to purchasing specific tab/cellphone, but use it for special-purpose for drones only, do not install a variety of applications, I think enough

The IOS (Apple) is by far the best operating system. DJI and Apple have a close relationship. I started with an iPad and found that it was just to big. I switched to an iPad Mini 4 128GB with Wi-Fi and Cellular. It is a match made in heaven. Not to big and not to small. Incredible Display, light weight and more than enough speed. The DJI Hood is a perfect fit as well.

That's what I have.
Works for me.
Definitely not on the high end but for less than 40 bucks I just use it for my P3A.
And if it breaks I'm out 40 bucks.

I own a Samsung S4 smartphone and a Samsung Tab S 10.5" tablet.  Neither are on the approved list, but both work fine with my P3A.   I also have a Samsung Tab 3 8" tablet, but I haven't been able to get live video feed to work on it, so it might not have enough horsepower or I don't have the correct settings.  The S4 phone screen is too small and the Tab S 10.5" screen is very large, so it would be nice if I could use the 8" Tab 3 just with the P3A and not need an extender bracket.   Is anyone else using a Tab 3 8" successfully?

He has to go through his settings and see what is on and what is off. Something is disabled. I went through the same issue with my iPad Mini 4. It worked fine and in the interim I had turned things off to help keep my Data time down. Totally my fault.

Does your battery drain if you don't use it for awhile?
That's the only negative so far.
Even if it's off the battery goes down to zero.

I have been successfully using the RCA Voyager (Android 5.0.1) from Walmart at $50 with my Phantom 3 Pro.  The tablet  has Wifi and will connect to the Internet, but it is NOT a phone, so you cannot send images immediately over the phone line.  So far, DJI has not approved this 5 x 7 tablet, but it works.  The tablet MUST connect with the controller, which is sometimes a problem.  1. Turn on the controller.  2. Turn on the quadcopter.  3. Plug the tablet into the controller with a USB cable.  Usually the tablet will automatically turn on and will connect to the controller via the USB cable (you will see the steps in drop-down messages at the top of the page when this happens..)  4.  Otherwise, plug in the tablet to the controller,  open the GO app, and hope that it connects.  Sometimes it is necessary to close the GO app, and re-open it.
