    I have a p3a and use a iPad Air and it all runs smooth, but I know my iPhone 5 does not run the go app smoothly.

    My sister in law wants to buy a p3s and run the go app with her iPhone 5s. Will it run the app without lag? If not what is a cheap tablet that will work well?

    The iPhone 5s is not commonly used, but it's on DJI's list of recommended devices. You can find a complete list of devices they recommend here.

    Runs fine on my 5s. I also use an Ipad mini 2 (WIFI only) and it runs fine on that as well. I have a P3S.

    I fly with a 5s, only issue is when I first started flying, the fpv had extreme lag when switching to video mode. I disabled the video cache and I haven't had and performance issues.
    The screen size is VERY small for fpv flights however. My friend let me fly with a tablet and I couldn't believe how much better the bigger screen is.
