    I think your phone will be a better choice. My Tab 3's were a no go with no video. Found a Refurbished Tab Pro 8.4 with a far better processor and that works very well, $135. A Apple mini 2 can be found refurbished for $150
    Theres a good list of tablets that have been found to work at phantomhelp.com

    I have a Tab 2 7.0 and it didn't work. Just upgraded to the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 and couldn't be happier

    Is this the reason why my iPad mini 2 charges when connected to my RC?

    I also have a galaxy tab S2 9.7 ..for some reason when I fly with it the video is blotchy and grainy. I don't understand why and have spent countless hours doing research on the problem . I'm now back to my iPad mini 2 till I figure out what I can do the Tab 2..disappointed because I loved the bigger screen and it being data activated with Verizon

    PM mediccj and see what his settings are. Maybe you can tune down the feed from the RC so the tablet doesn't have to work so hard to display the video

    I use a Tab S when I borrow it from my brother! It works very well. I also use my Galaxy s5 and S7 edge and they are all amazing.

    The Tab Pro is not a solid choice. Too fuzzy/grainy (I use the Tab Pro but I'll be upgrading shortly after seeing the difference).

    Tab S is a good choice..


    Here's a comparison between the Tab Pro & Tab S on both platforms (P3A & P3P)
    The Tab S has a far sharper image while flying. This does make a difference when you're trying to capture a shot and focus in on objects on the screen in sun light!

    I know of another that has issues with the mapping on a Samsung.
