A new faster mini would be really nice for the Mavic! Might be more to come, the mavic should have boosted the ipad mini sales numbers a litte I guess. I suppose apple don't relese statistics for how many of each product is sold.

Yes I was hoping for the same, It is nice tho for the phantom and inspire flyers as the new iPad only starts at $329 which is $70 cheaper than the iPad mini 4.

From what I read it's a stripped  down version of the 9.7 pro, older chip, no finger print coating and no anti-glare coating. Great if your on a budget but in now way an upgrade.

Here is a good read.

and a quote from them
" So why is the new iPad only $329? There has to be some kind of catch right? Not really, though there are a few places where Apple definitely cut corners. The two biggest are in the display, but not in its resolution of color gamut. The new iPad doesn’t have a fully-laminated display—nor does it have antireflective coating. These are features that have been standard in tablets for years now, though until we get our hands on the product, we won’t know for sure if Apple found a way to reengineer the technology to make a workaround solution."

For me, the fact that they've cut corners on the display drops it off the consideration list.  Seems if you're using it for flying display is pretty critical. I'm trying to find a screen that's much brighter than my iPad mini and with anti-glare. The new iPad isn't it.

Interestingly, apparently Apple has made claims that the screen is brighter, however there's some disagreement...

That cannot for the mavic because of the Ipad's size, wont fit the controller.
