    I have a Phantom 4k and I hear people are able to use the Acer Iconia tablet. The "DJI Go" does not appear to work on this device. What are the recommended apps to use for this tablet as a flight controller?

    You're going to need to run DJI GO in order to register your Phantom, perform some of the calibrations, configure some of the Phantom settings, and install the firmware. So, you really cannot just use another app all of the time.

    I can use the DJI Go app from my phone (Samsung s4) and I've had my Phantom 4k flying via that device. But I'd like to get it flying with a larger display - thus the Acer Iconia. So, I have all the registrations and calibrations done. Thus my initial question...

    You can find some alternative apps here. Litchi is the most popular.

    If you went to the google play store and it says that DJI Go is not compatible with your device, all it means is that your device is not on the list of compatible devices that are registered with the play store. Most times you can just download the app from another place...

    You can download the DJI Go app here: DJI GO APK Download - Free Media & Video app for Android | APKPure.com

    YES!!! This is exactly what happened! Thank you for correctly reading between the lines. I went to the site you linked and was able to install the DJI Go app on my new tablet. I'll try it out shortly! Thanks again!

    Just go into your download folder and click on the app. It will install. To get to the download folder you just need to use a file Explorer.
