    Must the hardware decoding enabled or disabled when you have a mini Ipad 2 ????

    A8 this option is up to the user. "ON" will have better performance but you might experience complete device reboots to do GPU on the a8. Some people see them more than others. Make sure you have background app refresh set to "OFF", this helps. Also double click the home button and make sure you have no other apps running.

    iPad mini 2 is A7, so yes turn it on.

    DJI says not to turn it on for A7 processors. See more details in this thread.

    I have this disabled and the video on the mini Ipad is good.
    I don't know what happened when I enable this function, therefore my question about this item

    Now i am confused, blade says turn it on and ED says turn it off. I have never seen them giving conflicting advise so im lost with this subject.

    That is a quote directly from DJI support, chitbird.

    I thought the same as you until I searched the RC group forum. Who knows? Try it both ways and see what works best... Check device temp after each and see which one runs cooler vs. any performance gains.

    It seems to be different opinions, why don´t you try both and let us know how it worked for you?
