    You can find a list of recommended and commonly used tablets here.

    I'm not sure what kind of budget you're working with, but the cheapest tablets are not the best choices. You're going to be trading performance for money.

    Nexus 7 vers 2 16gb ..... cost me about $150 as refurb on Ebay ... works really nice ... and being Google / Asus - it is not restricted on Android updates. I bought with an old version on it - within a couple of days it was up to official 6.2 Android version ...

    It also has own GPS built in.

    Very happy.

    My Nextbook (Walmart $80) works fine. It is for flying only and has nothing but Wifi, GPS, and DJI GO that is active on it.

    Thats one of the important factors when using a cheaper less able tablet - DON'T load it up with junk apps !!

    Keep it purely for the real functions you need. In fact uninstall some of the stuff it comes with that you will never use !! Give the processor a chance.

    How is the screen brightness for this? I am using my LG phone but the screen does not get bright enough in the sun. I have a hood but it does not work that well.

    You can run DJI GO on a Windows 10?
