I did due dilligence and searched but found no post or topics, do any of you run and iPad pro yet?  I am think of switching from android to iPad (you know, so I can acctually fly this thing) and was going to go with an iPad mini 4 but saw the pro has a better, brighter screen.  Any thoughts?

I didn't realize that the Pro's screen is brighter; the last I knew of the Mini 4 had a slight edge there.

Any thoughts?

Two things: the current Pro won't fit in the Mavic's controller, so if you go that route you'll essentially be forced to use some kind of tablet holder 100% of the time. Also, it's rumored that Apple is going to release a new round of tablets next month, including a Pro the size of the Mini 4. If you're willing to wait, it's possible that there will be an even better option available then, and it's also likely that the prices on the current models will drop some time after the new ones are announced.

The screen is brighter according to apple, I have not done research.  Good idea on waiting, who knows what will happen in a month, Android could be working again.

For those of you who have access to a 3D printer this works very well with an iPad Pro 9.7".  I used a phantom 4 phone holder.

Very well balanced and as you can see from the pictures it sits on its own without falling over.  The iPad Pro is awesome to use.  I use the DJI Ground Station Pro and the DJI Go 4 app.

The last picture is a using the DJi Ground Station app.  It took 95 pictures and I stiched them together using Adobe Photoshop.  I absolutely love this thing!

I just got myself an iPad mini 4 to go with my Mavic. Really chuffed with it; great processing power and really good screen brilliance.

Mine comes tomorrow, I can't wait, fed up of trying lesser alternatives such as the FAILING Samsung Galaxy A 7" and the Nvidia.  The Nvidia I now love for my gaming, so that is not a fail in some respects.

I use my iPhone 6, but have used my IPad Pro with no issues.  It fits in controller, and no issues with falling out (so far).  I prefer LOS, but glance down at screen for vitals & direction of camera, so typically use the phone, as well as phone is lighter in weight.  iPad is way brighter though.

I have a number of tablets (including iPads)....  Without a shadow of doubt, the iPad Pro 9.7 has a much brighter, sharper screen than any of the others. It's also very fast and very powerful... (I have also read very convincing reviews that speak very well of iPad Mini 4 - which apparently gave a big bump up in specs and performance to the iPad Mini 2 and 3 - which are both roughly on a par). However, the iPad Pro is a big step up, even from the iPad Mini 4).

Good luck!
