    Ipad mini works. Nope, there isn't an android version.
    However, there is a windows version.

    I suspect he's referring to running the vision app on android which is entirely possible. However, there is NO ANDROID VERSION of ground station. Just check out Google Play store and see if you can download it.

    Cheers

    no i was actually hoping I wouldn't have to buy an iPad.... android tablets are so cheap.
    And since I don't have any windows device.... i'll have to save!!

    I wasn't thrilled about having to get one either for my GS (I'm firmly in the Android camp), so I just shopped around until I found a good condition used or refurbed iPad mini for a reasonable price, you can get them for $250 or less.

    err yes I know what you were referring to. However, if you read the message I quoted. That refers to a portion of the video (also quoted) with an assumption that there is an android version. I'm just saying. There isn't ;)
