    I'm getting a P3P and would like advice on which device I should buy for my FPVing. I currently have an older iPad 2 and a Samsung Galaxy phone. I don't mind spending a bit if there is a better device I could use.
    Any suggestions are appreciated.
    Thank you

    Shield K1, iPad Mini 4, iPad Air 2 are all great choices. Can't go wrong with any of them!

    I have an ipad mini 4. Love it and the picture quality is awesome.

    Nothing is perfect in bright sun shine but yes these are the better choices.

    Other choice could be to buy a 1000 cd/m2 field monitor of 5 or 7" and hook it up on HDMI port.

    Thanks. Looks like my phone will work, but not the iPad 2 or my iPad mini. I was hoping they would since the screens are bigger. Maybe time for something new. I'll check out the recommendations. Thank you.
