    Just wondering if any of you are using a Kindle Fire HD with your Phantom 3 Pro? And if so, does it display properly or have any lagging issues etc?

    Well I have just got it out. I had to install mobile 1 app on it in order to download Dji go. It appears to look ok but I have yet to test it properly. I have only just installed it a few moments ago

    Not heard on here about using a kindle - get one & let us know how it goes, only $50 apparently.

    I have one. Installed Dji Go on it tonight. I will fly tomorrow as the weather looks good and I will report back.

    I tried it and it was awful. I put my iPad mini back on (ignoring the glare until my tech shield arrives). The Kindle just kept getting pixelated, it could not handle Dji Go app I doubt.

    Did you enable hardware decoding? Decoding the compressed H.264 video coming from the craft is intense work, too much for a general purpose CPU to do in software, hence pixelation.
