    I'm using an iPad 2 with iOS7. Works just fine. What I finally did was took a suction mount and modified it so it would slip into the standard GoPro mount. The sucker bit attaches to the back of the iPad, stock GpPro fixing on the Tx. Battery life on the iPad is so much better that on my iPhone 5 which drained like a leaking bucket in the cold in the weather we're having here at the moment. Only one downside, it's much heavier!

    Any particular reason for not using the new iPad Mini?
    Was thinking of using the Mini myself and would very much like any comments.

    Ok I feel I am missing something here. I cannot find the app on my Ipad. The only thing I find is a German DJI app. I have it on my IPhone which I use but I would like to see it on the Ipad. Help anyone?? Thanks

    Download the same app as you have on the iPhone, run in 2X mode,
    App store.
    Good luck

    You need to look for phone apps as opposed to ipad apps. Then just 2x the screen size. Works fine.
