    It's difficult to say if it will work with DJI go as we don't know it's video processing capabilities. Buy if supplier has good return policy.

    I ordered a new K1 day before yesterday...

    The tablet I'm currently using is pretty good if you're looking for a dirt cheap tablet. It's around $70 but it has no compass.

    I use an Icer Iconia 8 B1. About $100 at Costco and works perfectly fine with Go and P3A.

    I don't think that the compass, in the tablet, is used for the follow me and orbit. My Acer does not have a compass and these functions work fine in DJI Go.

    Well from what i read the follow me is suppose to.be using the gps of the device (tablet,cellphone) to follow wtv it is to follow.The compass on the drone is for the drone to know what directio ot going to go back to rth

    Close enough. GPS is used for position info. Compass for orientation info. Orientation of the drone is a crucial piece of info. Orientation of the phone / tablet is irrelevant.

    Personally, I never tried to fly without a device but, I wouldn't be surprised if it was possible.

    The drone has it's own GPS built in. GPS in tablet is used for follow me and if you move locations and need to reset return to home. I use an Air 2 (wifi only model) and there is no GPS built into the tablet itself.

    P3p can fly without a tablet or phone. I remember when I was purchasing a used one, the seller flew it a few feet away without any external device connected.
