    Hi guys,

    Is anyone using an Apple Ipad Mini 2 cellular and also using firmware 1.1.9 and also app 1.1.2?

    I had huge disconnection issues BEFORE these updates, and now I am seeing even more threads with disconnection issues after these updates.

    Would love to know if there are any/many users out there with the ipad mini 2 cellular having ZERO problems?

    Many thanks

    Yeah, this is one reason why i want that sunshade too Robin - i too think it might have something to do with it as it is horrendous right now - 45 degrees in the day.

    However two things:

    a) The dealer has told me that he has sold over 100 of the p3p's in the UAE and I am the only one reporting this particular problem (could be true, or he could be lieing though).

    b) It wasn't 45 degrees when I first got it nearly a month ago AND i tested it at both day and night time (mostly night for this disconnection tests) where it was much cooler at around 25 degrees - it really should work fine in these temps!

    I also have the iPad Mini 2 with LTE (T-Mobile) My last flight near the end, the video started to go black here and there, but the connection was still there.

    iPad mini 2 wifi and have not had one disconnect, just the normal blink when switching between FPv and Map display. And I run a BT hotspot while flying with wifi off and app refresh off.

    You not find a tablet that solves this problem. Even with a sunshade it's hard to see much in sunlight even on cloudy days. I'm going the goggle route and ordered a HeadPlay FPV goggle. Once the HDMI out board for the P3 comes out I'll do HDMI out from the controller to the HDMI In on the HeadPlay unit. No more glare and brightness issues. Sure you'll look a bit funny with these on but it won't bother me. The HeadPlay goggles were just released so they likely won't be delivered until late June or early July.

    Did some research last night and you are correct - it's a universal problem...
