I am using my phone, Galaxy S4, why? Because at this point I spent so much on the drone, I do not want to drop another 300+ for a good tablet. I have tried my daugher's iPad mini, but it does not have GPS nor cell internet... Although I can carry a mifi or use my android as hotrspot....
I am sure there's quite a spectrum of devices you all use!

Thx!

I researched this topic on here prior to buying my aircraft, and the overwhelming impression I got was that an Apple iPad Air 2 was the best device. So that is what I got and it works perfectly. I understand not everyone can afford to spend that much, but the question is: Do you want a reliable device or not?

I bought my Air 2 from a pawn shop in used condition. Only a couple of minor scratches but otherwise perfect, and I saved a bundle in the process.

Here is a list of supported devices that also includes pilot confirmed devices.
It does appear that DJI is trying to steer us in the direction of iOS which is not unexpected given their new alliance with Apple. It will be interesting to see if that lasts though given Apple's much more lenient return policy.

Works well? I'll have to look it up! No gps? There's sure an advantage to have something that can do GPS as well as cellular network internet... but then again.. if it works I guess it's doable, and for that price it's not too bad...!

I know! Just had to give it a try. Plus it has a micro sd so I plugged in the card from my P3P and it was good to view at lower than 4k. Got it today and will give it more test tomorrow.

Nextbook was not bright enough. I am now on samsung tab 4, and it does work, but some footage is a bit skippy when watching live (recorded is ok). I guess the tablet is a bit slow? Not sure.. But it sure is way brighter than nextstep, and also screen touch accuracy and detection is superior... So I will stick to it for now.
Really? Fire is powerful enough to work the app? Did not expect that!

Nvidia Shield is probably the best value tablet to use. Others that cost far more may be a bit better but cost is not worth it.
it works perfectly fine with my P3pro.
I have all updates and latest android installed a 32 gig sd memory card.
GO runs great and it plays sd card video perfectly.

at $199.00 new it is great choice.

I use a ipad mini 4 and galaxy s6 edge plus with my standard and both work great. The lack of gps on my mini 4 doesn't even bother me.
