    I've done a search and also researched but can't find my answer.
    It's my understanding a tablet with GPS and a barometer is best for flights that include terrain with differing elevations. The Shield K1 seems great regarding price vs performance. Does it have a barometer?
    Thanks

    The Shield K1 does not have a barometric pressure sensor. As far as I know the DJI Go app never makes use of a tablet/phone barometer, although some 3rd party apps do in a limited way.
