    Happy birthday Mike.

    The iPad 2 was discontinued a couple of years ago. Are you sure you didn't get an iPad Mini 2 for your birthday?

    Yeah... I have to find out more information without offending my daughters ( they didn't get it for me with flying in mind)
    Its says IPAD2 new on the box
    Sorry to be confusing

    Its definitely an ipad2 2nd generation. New in the box.
    Is it because its only a WIFI device? Makes sense I guess... I was hooping to use it for flying the P3
    My wife said I probably would have to purchase a data plan to use it without wifi.

    My regular phone is an Iphone6 plus..but small screen...

    That's not going to work. It's too slow to run the DJI GO app :(
