    Guys and Gals,

    Looks like I need to add a GPS rcvr to my wi fi only Mini 3 if I want to use the new Follow Me flight mode.

    I was looking at the Bad Elf 2200 Pro as a possible solution.

    I'd welcome any feedback on this model and / or any other recommendations for a solution.

    TIA for your thoughts.

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    Which GPS app should I use with the Dual ?

    Sorry for the questions but I have no experience here.

    I chose early on, against fiddling, and just went ahead and bought an Apple iPad Air 2 64GB Cellular, to use exclusively on the Phantom 3 . It is awesome, a real work horse, & solves all the known issues associated with updates. Thankfully so far, for me, this combination has worked, flawlessly. None of the negatives or concerns voiced by any of the other worthy Phantom 3 Pilots.

    Got to hand it to @dji, on another job well done. Again...
    Also mucho gracias, I really appreciate it and two thumbs up, to the build quality and reliability of these Apple products. We do pay to play, for what you get. But what a fine tablet. Works like a charm.
    Well, I'm off to fly a few more battery packs.
