    To anyone who has used the Phantom 3 Advanced with a Nexus 7 II tablet. Is the connection from the controller to the Nexus 7 II tablet accomplished by the use of the included cable or is there another cable that you have to buy? I have a Standard and the connection between the controller and the tablet is done via wifi. I have an Advanced being delivered on Monday and just realized that the connection between the controller and the tablet with be different in comparison to the Phantom Standard. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    You connect the controller to a Nexus with a standard USB to Micro-USB connector just like the one that comes included with the P3 Advanced.

    I think you'll find you have a nice setup with N7 and P3A - that's what I have. If the extra length of the USB cable bothers you, you can wrap it around the base of the RC antennas without affecting range. To reduce reflections from the glossy screen, a Tech Armor anti-reflective screen protector will help.
