    Has anyone had any problems using mini 4. I have been using my droid phone and it works great but very hard to see

    DJI Go App was BRUTALIZING my battery: EVEN WHEN I was not using the app.
    I had to uninstall and buy an old iPad.
    It is far more stable, robust, and even more features on iOS than Android.

    I am Android for EVERYTHING except DJI Go App.

    I changed yesterday from my droid to the mini 4. Reinstalled firmware and know I have a 1 second delay on the screen. Should I have reformatted the sd card

    Reformatting the SD card won't resolve that lag. Try these tips.

    I was using my Note 4 to fly, but it is hard to see. On top of that, the app kept crashing, and there was enough lag to make it annoying. I bought an iPad Mini 4 (Wifi), and LOVE IT. The only thing I can complain about is that the screen brightness on the mini, isn't as bright as the Note 4...which I really liked.

    Hey do you know if this unit will work with the "Inspire-1 V2" ?? I purchased an android (unknown manufacturer) but I only paid $80 Brand new, and it came preloaded with all the DJI apps including the Inspire. But it was crap, and only worked for a few weeks. I had a great IPad but it wasn't compatible with the Inspire. So I sold it,(big mistake) cause I loved using it for web surfing!!
    So I guess I'm also asking if this Nvidia works as well as the iPad for those needs?

    This is a photo of what I bought on eBay...[​IMG][​IMG]


    I really appreciate any help or advice you can give me!
    Thanks for reading.::

    & A "INSPIRE V-2"

    I use my Nvidia Shield K1 with my Inspire 1 V2. It works just as well as with my Phantoms.
