    Just got this tablet... Does anyone have experience with running the GoApp with this device? I'm currently running the app on my iPad mini 2 which seems to be OK, but am interested in what Android users think. Thanks.

    Can you determine if your tab is the newer version (model T580)? The older version uses a quad 1.2 GHz CPU and the new one uses a 1.6 GHz Exynos 7870 Octa-Core CPU. The new version should have Android 6 installed. The newer one should definitely handle the Go app smoothly but the earlier version may be a little too slow. That being said, I have used a Motorola Moto G with a 1.2 GHz quad core CPU with good results on P3A & P3P. YMMV. Be sure to kill all unnecessary apps that may be running in the background.

    I first started having the problem when I upgraded my galaxy tab 2s to Android 6. Everything was good with 5.

    I just purchased a Samsung Galaxy Tab A and when I connect it to the DJI Controller via the USB hardwire the Tab A says "Disconnected" I have no idea as to why either.

    Try a different cable.
    The DJI cable that came with my P3 failed and wouldnt connect.

    Turn the pad completely off.
    The last thing once bird and control on and cable connected.
    Is to turn on pad, it will come on automatically take you to app and camera is connected.
