    Just wondering if anyone has one yet and how it might perform as its relatively cheap as HD tablets go (8" and 10" that is). Only asking the question because of the price point and I know all about ipad air, shield, Tab S etc as have those as well, and I know its got the same reflective type screen that some suffer from, this is purely a price point question as a backup tablet.

    I don't think dji go is available on the Amazon App Store.

    It'll work, but Fire tabs don't have GPS (i think the only Android device w/o one). It'll struggle w/ the video link, but should technically "work". You'll have to side load the Go app every time there's an update. Search these forums for Amazon Fire... there are a bunch of posts on it.
