I've got access to a first generation iPad. Model # MC492LL/A.
Will it work?
How can it be mounted?
EH, never mind. The first gens I can get a hold of only go up to IOS 5.1.1.
FC40 cam requires IOS 6 or higher... bummer....
I really wanted to use the much larger screen.....
I'm open to suggestions. Maybe a base model android type pad for just this purpose?
Samsung Galaxy Tab or Asus MemoPad HD 7
The Asus works great. You can make or find a piece of wood (or anything else the size of a phone) that would fit in the mount.
Put velcro on it and on the back of your pad and the created piece. Voila!
I even made a sunshade while I get the one off eBay for it out of a box of cereal, wrapped black tape around it and cut out a square hole in the back for the vecro strips to connect and it works and looks awesome.
The MemoPad runs for about 150$ around here in Canada, fantastic little cheap tablet.
I have used the iPad 2 with my FC40 camera. I have used my HTC EVO with it too and I prefer Android devices with this camera. Using iOS devices with it is flaky in my experience.
Works fine with mine. Model number a1396
I used to use an iPad for my ar drone and during the summer on a hot day the **** thing would shut down due to over heating.
Yes, and mine has overheated in sunny situations also.
FYI iPads will overheat if in a case while in the sun
My iPhone does that sometimes
I used my ipad mini but don't like using it due not having a proper mount for it yet(it works great for the fpv)
Agreed I used my iPad mini other day and it worked very well..
It works with the iPad air. I did it just to try it out. I use my iPhone most of the time.
