I had been flying my P3 with my iPad Mini 2 Wifi. It worked great but I did wish I had a cellular connection to get maps realtime instead of using my iPhone 6+ as a hotspot to cache maps right before flying. I had read posts from here and RC Groups mainly back in May the iPad Air 2 had issues with the Pilot App when Hardware Decode was turned ON in the App. I don't know if this was resolved with the Pilot 1.2.0 App but I took the P3 out and ran her through 3 batteries without issue with Hardware Decode ON. This shouldn't be a issue anymore. I suspect the original issue was with the Pilot App as I hadn't read this being a widespread iPad Air 2 issue with games etc. It was only 80 degrees today with 54% humidity so not real hot. The iPad didn't get very hot to the touch. Weight wise I did't really feel much of a difference. It wasn't bulky or in the way when I was flying. I did fly it naked without a case as it just barely fits in the DJI mount. I didn't use a shade as I don't have one yet but I always try to fly without a shade anyway. A shade is great but it'll cut down on the iPad's breathing room and could add to the overheating issues some are seeing in hot weather. It also seemed like the iPad Air 2 was a bit brighter than my iPad Mini 2 so this helped. One thing to note about the new Pilot 1.2.0 App. I like the Map on the bottom right and the compass and speed values on the bottom left. But the map for whatever reason kept reverting back to street view instead of hybrid view every time I quit the App and restarted it. A bit annoying but I am sure DJI will work out that bug. Other than that I didn't notice any other issues with the App and I am glad to see the annoying RTH warning isn't plastered in the center of the screen.
