I am really happy with the Nvidia Shield. Love the built in screen recorder feature. Lets me record the screen during all my flights.

I use iPad air 2 and it has been flawless, perfectly fits into holder as well, which i have yet to see anyone comment on.  If you're like me you are doing a ton of research before purchase and knowing the actual size in terms we can all understand really helps.  Dji says anything below 170mm... I say anything iPad air 2 or smaller.  The air 2 pushes the tablet holder to the extent.  Happy flying!

I have used them all. iPad Air 2 has the best, brightest screen...and reliable operation. The Nvidia Shield is also very good....but battery life isn't anywhere near the iPad Air 2.

I have the iPad mini 2 and think that the real estate is fine and the weight is perfect. It would be nice to have a bigger screen but then the balance and weight is not the best.

I use two nvidia Shields and I am very pleased with the quality of both of them...However, I do agree about battery life. These tablets draw the power...

Than you all so much for the quick response.  I take it that the NVidia shields are cheaper then Ipads?  are they also touch screens?

I am using two Nexus 7's. I just went ahead and built sunshields for them both that break down for travel.  Haven't had any real lag with them.

iPad air 2 has been perfect for me especially the built in anti-glare. The nvidia works, but you can't see much of anything  in the bright sun.

I don't see the price difference as that much of an issue, the memory is what you are paying for and you can buy the low memory air 2, you can even get a refurbished one cheaper.

The nvidia will not have the resale value, or the repair availability longer term.

The life cycle cost of the air 2 is much better.
If they had an ipad mini with the anti glare, and A8 processor, it would be even better.

Does anyone use the iphone 6 plus?

For a really inexpensive Android solution, the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 works great!!  Remember, the recommended Nexus is made my ASUS.

I cannot get my Galaxy note 4 (edge) to connect to the inspire. Wish I could resolve this issue.

They are $600 dollars EACH !!!
How come no one mentions that?
NVidia Shield is $300 dollars - HALF as much

Is the Air 2 twice as good as the Shield cause it's twice as much, (a real budget blower for most of us regular folk needing 2).

I have not seen it posted that two Air2 is $1200, and two Shields are only $600, half as much.

I'm getting ready to buy 2 tablets. is the Air2 really twice as good as the Shield?
(Air2 = no google maps .....Air2 = no screen recording .......  Air2 = Reboots inflight (yikes, nice feature)

So why is the Air2 so much more ??????

No Apple IPad 2 mini is not overpriced at all. You get what you pay for and with Apple it is stability, ease of use and most of all good feature set. Compared to the nexus the iPad 2'is not much more expensive but way cheaper the Air 2. The air 2 is great but imbalances the tx and really, do you need a big screen tv to fly and do functions? I spend most of my time watching the copter anyway. I am seriously thinking of using my iPhone 6 plus for flying and the iPad for the camera person.

For me the back breaker is the battery life, from the research I have done the iPad mini2 last almost twice as long the nvidia.  If the battery was better I would go for the shield

No the sim does not work with the TAB 4 - I am happy to say that for 150$ I do have a very-little-lag tablet to work with.
