    I just ordered a P3 Pro off Amazon only to find out that my iPhone 5 is not supported.

    I don't want to spend $$$ on a new iPhone so I was wondering if there were any Android tablets that work well for under $130?

    Maybe a used Google Nexus 7?

    It's going to be tough to find a brand new tablet under $130.

    I'm using the Samsung Galazy Tab 4, 7 inch (model: SM-T230NU). It was $135 at WalMart. $109 for refurbished online. It's working well for me.

    Look like this Dual Boot tablet with 2GB ram at 87$ works well with the DJI pilot app from a user report: http://j.mp/1djvWL7

    I have this Exact TAB (model: SM-T230NU), and the Phantom 3 Pro and I cant get it to communicate at all, I have it working with several phones but I just bought this TAB (model: SM-T230NU). for this exact use and it does not seem to talk. Tried changing the USB options in the TAB etc. Any Recommendations, maybe I'm Missing something??

    if you have any samsung(t210 or above) you need to debug it in the build(allow the usb port to be open to allow unidentified items i.e. p3 and then tick the allow to use usb.this is already done on the apples n pears.

    I too am using the Samsung Tab 4 7" from Walmart. Works fine other than it about a half a second lag.

    You do need to make sure that debugging is turned on.

    OK, ISSUE RESOLVED, FIVE TAPS ON BUILD UNDER DEVICE SETTINGS, SELECT USB DEBUGGING ... I recalled this after reading your post, had to do the same thing for my larger TAB Pro 12.2. Thanks, WORKS GREAT!
