    I messed up buying one tablet that looked like it would work but doesn't, so want to go with something on the list (that don't cost a fortune).

    A quick search suggests some are having issues with the Nexus...

    Nexus 7 users, how is it running with the current version of the DJI app?

    No problems on current version here. It has always worked great!

    I have no other use for a tablet so when I needed one for the P3A I went for the best 'budget' one I could which was the Nexus 7 2013, I picked one up used but as new boxed for £70 (lots of people upgraded at xmas so plenty of good deals to be had on ebay).

    I use it solely for the Phantom so there are no other unwanted app's running on there, I've always let Android and DJI app' update to latest versions and have never had a problem with any version.

    I'm using a 2013 16GB Nexus 7, all seems to be working fine so far. Way cheaper than the alternatives.

    My Nexus 7 (2013) works just fine too. They are currently $148 on Amazon.

    Mine works just peachy. With Litchi, too.. If you want to go the extra mile and are so inclined, root it, and have absolute control of all the Google *stuff*. ( which means get rid of everything that is not absolutely necessary. )

    Cheers!
