    Hello everyone, a real newbie here. I am hoping I can find a quick answer to this issue: I just purchased a used Nexus 7 for use with my new Standard. It was sold as a 2013 tablet, however when I powered it up, it showed Nexus 7 2012. The build number is LMY48M. It is running Android 5.1.1. Will this work properly with the Standard? Thank you much for your input.

    No, after seeing the 2012 date come up I did not try to do anything with it. Was trying to determine whether I needed to return it or not. Thank you.

    Does your Nexus 7 have a camera on the back?
    That's what differentiates the original version from the 2013 version.
    camera = 2013
    The original version does not run the DJI GO app as well as the improved 2013 version does.

    Yes, the Nexus does have a camera on the back side.

    Then it should be good to go.
    The Nexus 7 (2013) is a great tablet for flying.
    Not too small and not too big.
    It's Goldilocks .. just right
