    I was just wandering what is the best tablet to use for my P3A
    Are the tablets that are advertised on gear best, or wish, any good for the money they seem to have all the latest processors and software etc or should I get the iPad mini 2. Which is best for the DJI go app.
    Cheers Steve.

    Cheers msinger if I go for a iPad 2 and it's not the cellular one just the wifi one will that make a difference when flying as there will be now gps on the wifi tablet I'm told so would this have a detrimental effect with the home point etc.

    If you do not have a cellular iPad 2, the only things you won't be able to use are the Follow Me feature and the feature to manually reset the home point to your current location after takeoff. Many pilots probably never use either of those features.

    My old Samsung Tab4 7" does the job well aside from brightness in sunlight. In the Go app it is a little laggy but with Litchi it is pretty fast almost lag free. Seeing how it is pretty old compared to some of the $500-800 tablets it is going to get it's end of life use before buying a new one.
