    Tried today the P3P with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4.
    Before I tried, I upgraded the Tab 4 to Android 4.4.2, then downloaded the dji pilot app.
    After I installed it said disconnected and requested me to enable USB debugging.
    This requires going to the about, version, then clicking 7 times on the build to allow access to developer features.
    After doing that I was able to find the switch to enable USB debugging.
    When I enabled it, the device connected to the P3P.
    Interestingly, the app came by default with the map adjusted for Mainland China. Had to turn this off - not a biggy.

    I noticed that upon every application start the video is distorted (green zigzag lines). But after a few seconds it stabilizes OK.
    I flew the P3P for 15 minutes without the app crashing and with good video, albeit poor screen visibility in the sun.
    I have the 7.9" tablet which sits better than my iPad in the holder.

    Did your Tab4 fit in the holder?
    I have Tab3 or 4 and tried to squeeze it into the holder but was just too big.
    I have Note4 as my only other Android device (no Apples at the house at all).

    I hope to get the Tab to fit so that I can use the larger screen but will purchase another tablet if I have to.

    Oh, yeah, I forgot that they come in multiple sizes.
    Mine is a 10 incher & it's barely too big.

    Is your tab 4 still working? I just recently bought the 7" under the assumption it would perform as well as my Droid Maxx and I can't seem to get the live video feed to appear
