    Hey guys. I'm sure this question has been asked a million times but I'm looking to buy an iPad Air 2 for my phantom 3 advanced. Will the wifi version be good? Do I need one with cellular data?

    Thanks in advanced.

    U will Need cellular if u wanna use follow me mode. Follow me need gps built in the tablet or mobile. Wifi version of iPad Air 2 doesn't have built in gps
    Besides for follow me mode in autopilot app, it works with barometer also (available for iPad Air 2 cellular ) so the drone will change altitude with you if u are driving uphill, skiing or changing altitude

    Air two for me. Wifi only. Don't use follow me. If I was to then I'll just use my iPhone.
