    Background:
    I currently own a P3S and have been flying a LOT since September 2015. My current monitoring device is my Samsung G5, and I really like it. But I had issues with lag running Litchi, and I have a P4 on order.
    My Question:
    Since the P3S controller is different, and the GO interface offers more options on the higher models, does it require more processing power to monitor/control the P4/P3A/P3P vs. the simple P3S I currently have?
    Have any of you who upgraded from the P3S to the P4 found your existing devices inadequate?

    Thanks for any info you have on this.

    I normally fly with an iPad Mini 4 now, but my iPad Mini 2 works just fine with my P4/P3P/P3A/P34K/Inspire. If there is a difference in the remote controllers resource-wise, I do not notice it (even when using slower devices).
