I recently took a chance on the Kindle Fire HD 8 tablet due to the great size/form-factor and hardware specs given the low ($149) price. It only has 8GB of built in memory, but you don't really need much memory if you just want to run the DJI and Litchi apps. It is expandable via a microusb slot, so I stuck an 8GB card in there for giggles. Here are my experiences with setting up the tablet and using it with my Phantom. Setup: 1) Went to Application Settings and enabled installing apps from Unknown Sources. 2) Went to device settings and tapped on the Serial Number 7 times which unlocks developer mode (displays a new menu). 3) In the new developer menu I enabled USB Debugging. 4) I followed the steps here: Install Google Play Store on 2015 Amazon Fire Tablet (7, Fire HD 8 / 10) | AndroMods 5) Had to wait on the Google apps to update and restart a time or two, then my Litchi purchase changed from displaying "$24.99" to "Purchased' meaning I could install the app which I'd previously purchased. 6) Installed DJI GO, Litchi, and PhantomPilots apps from the Google Play Store. GPS: The Kindle Fire HD does not have GPS built in, and therefore you won't get the blue dot displaying your device's current position in the Litchi app. In the field, you may want to wifi-tether your smart phone to the kindle temporarily which just sets your position in the Litchi app. You don't really even need to do this though. DJI GO and Litchi Everything worked so well with these apps that I don't really have anything to report. The device was more than adequate to run the apps smoothly. I cached the maps of the location I was going to be flying from home, and everything loaded perfectly and works great. No video lag at all, etc. Screen: The screen is pretty reflective, so you may want an anti-reflective screen cover, or a shade. I have a Galaxy S6 phone, and the tablet seemed maybe 5-10% brighter than the phone, which is saying something since the Galaxy is an OLED screen vs the LED backlight LCD screen on the Kindle. Overall the Kindle is a great size and more than powerful enough for general flying and GO/Litchi app usage. I'm happy with it and feel like it was money well spent.
