    I ordered the Phantom 2 Vision yesterday, and went to get the DJI-Vision app
    from the Google Play Store for my Vizio Android Tablet VTAB1008 (v3.2.1),
    but it says that my device is not acceptable. No reason given.

    In the DJI Wiki I find that Android 4 or better is "required", and that
    the Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, Note 2, or Note 3 are suitable, and other
    similar devices would be accepted. So, maybe I have a "suitable' device?

    I try my Kyocera eVent (Android 4.0.4) and ...
    it is not acceptable, and no clue to what is accepted.

    One member on this forum said that he had similar problems, and
    that he was able to download the APK file directly from DJI, and it
    worked fine on his "unacceptable" smartphone.

    I found the APK to download here: http://m.dji.net/djivision
    The latest version, as of 2 Jan 2014, is 1.0.37 for DJI-Vision.

    Cheers, Gary

    To install you need to set "allow installation from unknown sources" in your android device.

    How well would the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7" Tablet with 8GB Memory work?
    1GB ram, 1024 x 600 screen, can add 32GB mini-SD card, and about $129 at Walmart.
    Apparently it will display HD material (Although not in full Hi-Res).

    It has WiFi (and bluetooth), but I do not know about sufficient motion
    sensors to operate the camera tilt and pan functions.

    Thanks, Gary

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7" Tablet seems about right
    for the FPV viewing, and for running the DJI-Vision app.

    Not recognized by the Play Store, but I downloaded the APK file
    and it runs. I will need to try it with the P2V before I will really
    know if it functions properly.

    Does anybody know what functions the "display" needs to have?
    Or, what the DJI-Vision app needs?

    Kindle fire hd works fine also. You do need ti add the app using a special app installer app like the black market app or 1 market app.

    What other Android devices are you using please?

    See first post for a link to the latest DJI-Vision app APK file.
    This file is useful for "side-loading" the app into Android devices
    that the Google Play Store does not allow for this app.

    Cheers, Gary

    Just for fun I tested the app on my Transformer EEE pad (Android 4.0.3), and it's working fine.
    Please note that this was flying inside a big garage.

    Hi all! I just placed an order for a P2V. As I would prefer to use a tablet instead of my smartphone to control the Vision, can you tell me if the above referenced tablets will fit in the smartphone holder that comes with the Vision?

    No tablets will fit in the holder, it's only designed for phones. If you search the forum you'll find people who have modified their tablets to allow the holder to grip them, and others who have added third-party mounts for a tablet to their transmitter.

    No Tablets fit?
    It would depend upon the size of the tablet, right?
    Well..., maybe there are not any tiny tablets. :oops:

    Would 4.37 inches fit (the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 inch tablet)?

    Perhaps somebody would actually measure the wide-open dimension of their
    smartphone clamp, and report it here, please?

    I might have to 3D print a 5" high tablet adapter.

    I've just measured it. At full stretch the max distance is 9.5cm or 3.75 inches between the jaws.

    Wow! 3.75 inches - so near yet so far. It would be nice if DJI offered a clamp with about a half inch more room in it as an accessory .

    This is what I did for my iPad Mini. I got a holder for the iPad with the threaded back from Grifiti.

    This is my new setup using a Seasucker vacuum cup to hold any tablet. It is secure and clean and does not interfere with the controls.

    Here is how I mounted my Galaxy Tab 3.

    Short piece of 1X2 with quarter round tacked to the two long edges.

    Attach to tablet with sticky back velcro.

    The curve of the quarter round fits the curve of the clamp almost perfectly.

    I happened to have some white vinyl material from Home Depot on hand so I didn't have to paint it, but wood would work just as well.
