    Just got a ipad4 mini. I looked at the reviews of the latest DJI app and many were negative to the point I am afraid to load it. What experience have some of you had with it.

    Probably on the apple App Store. It gets pretty lousy reviews.

    I was out this morning with a ipad mini 3. It was the first time I took it out with the p3p. The screen refresh was horrible. I was getting about 1 frame per second. I had it on airplane mode. The first I took it up it was so bad I landed right away and restarted the ipad. It was a little better but not good. I tried Go and litchi and they were both about the same. Last week I was out and used Go on a samsung tab 4 and that was 100% better than this ipad. It really isn't usable the way it is

    Been using the iPad mini 4 for several months, works great on it.

    Only thing I would suggest is you get a matte screen protector on to reduce the glare.

    I used an iPad mini 2 for awhile with no issues.
    I've since upgraded to an iPad mini 4 and again no issues.

    Will from the answers I will load it and give it a try.I have the 2.9.0 on my iPhone 6plus and no problems with it and have been holding off because of some reviews. Will be getting a iPhone 7plus and also was concerned about adding the updated DJI app.Will see how it flies today on the new ipad4 mini.

    I have been using a Mini 2 with my Pro for about 14 months now without a single issue.

    Great I must be having all the problems then. I followed all the tips on what to do with the ipad, and it was a POS. The only thing left I can think to try is another cable. It's not a official apple cable. I'm on IOS 10.

    OK I still didn't have a "Apple cable" but I went out in the yard with a different cable and held the p3p in one hand and the remote in the other hand and I couldn't yet it to glitch once. I may be on to something. That would explain why go and litchi was crap on the ipad and the android worked good. I'll hit target and get a short lightning cable and try again tomorrow. It was so bad today half the screen would be green and wait for 1-2 seconds to refresh. The only reason I got this ipad is for the Phantom, that's why I'm a bit frustrated.

    Most of those don't work for data transfer, just for charging.

    Not a problem with my iPad 2.

    It's a belDon cable and it said sync and charging, but I tried to go cheap as the Apple cable is $20. They were out at target so I'll have to try best buy
