    Hi,

    The DJI forums do show reply from DJI stating what you can use, I think the iPad Mini 2 is minimum. I've just purchased the Nvidia Shield though, as it fits perfectly inside Inspire case where the instructions were. Not flown with it yet, but sure it will be fine. There is a small amount of lag, say 1/4 sec, not sure if this is down to the Shield or quality I'm streaming. I flown for about a month using iPhone 6, but the Android version of DJI Pilot seems better

    Hope this helps

    Chris

    In general you would want a tablet that has enough processing and graphic power and then some.
    After much debate I went with I believe is the current standard, or the most popular tablet around. The iPad Air 2.

    So far mine has performed very well considering no issues with video transmission.

    general lag, the screen doesnt refresh, and sometimes the app drops out completely after taking still shots in quick succession.

    there is no lag on a big screen attached to my second controller, I havent gotten as far as trying the second controller as the master to see if I have a defective lightbridge, I guess I will test that next time im out flying

    I too use dji's most recommended tablet being the Air 2. I hate apple products but if they say this is the best tablet for the Inspire 1 then so be it. I bet they never heard the story of Adam and Eve and the apple. We all know how that turned out...

    The first iPad Air (A1474?) seems to be working great for me.

    I have an iPad Air 2 and get better reception from the AC when I use my iPhone 6 plus.

    After upgrade to firmware 1.2.01.03 I am having more connection problems with either. Is anyone else having transmission properties since the last firmware upgrade?

    Have you enabled hardware decoding?
