    You should have no issues with devices that are currently working

    Thank you! I'd hate to buy it only to find out I need another tablet..... it's priced pretty good, exactly what I paid for the P3Pro with extra battery.... only without the extra battery BUT it includes a case....

    Very unlikely. First of all, that 'case' in the pictures looks nothing like anything DJI ever/ever will create. Plus, on the In The Box section of the Compare Phantom Series, P4 says nothing about a case. DJI actually made a new backpack (combo of hard and soft-shell) for $199, $50 more than the P3 backpack!

    You should be ok because you have IOS. Maybe they worked out a deal with Apple to make sure that its not compatible with Android. LOL!

    It does come with a case. It just doesn't have a hard plastic shell

    Same Lightbridge and software as the P3, so same tablet requirement, the cheapest working one is Nexus 7 2013, but to avoid lag you must turn off GPS on the tablet.

    Happy Flying.

    Let me see if I have this straight. The P4 ordered from DJI website as a "limited time offer" shows a (hard shell?) case, 8 props and other stuff. Oddly, the picture doesn't show the battery but I'm sure there is one. I, too, cannot find a "included in the box" list anywhere and no one answers the Chat in China right now. So what is really included?

    Here's what I got on my second request about the gray speckled case with the top handle:

    Dear Dan,
    Thanks for your reply.
    This carry case comes with phantom 4 may not be hard enough to travel with as carry-on luggage.It is made from foam materials.
    Please feel free to come back if there are any other questions.
    Have a good one.

    Best Regards
    DJI Online Store

    So probably good enuf for transport in a car locally, but be ready to pay $200 for a better case if you fly with it. Another three ounces to the weight over the P3P means another fifty bucks for the case to fit in MarketingMath.

    Well, there's a rational argument for waiting for more information. Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing, as Shakespeare said. He also mentioned something about a tale told by an idiot, but I won't go there. Some things are obvious and don't need to be illustrated.

    OK, maybe I shouldn't have posted this. I should maybe have learned:
    Never get into a battle of wits with a half-wit.

    Nothing personal.

    The same list of devices are compatible with the P4 -- since it's going to continue to use DJI GO. That list of recommended devices can be found here.

    Im just talking about nexus 7 2013, if you don't turn off gps on it, it lags a bit every 3 seconds.
