You can fly without a mobile device after you register your Phantom in DJI GO, but I don't recommend it. The DJI GO app provides a lot of valuable information as you fly.

Technically you can fly with RC without a tablet but a critical information like battery voltage will not be available and that would put your drone out of safe flying.

If you know what the flashing lamps on the AC mean (I think most don't) and you're flying close, in some ways it can be more fun to fly old-school as you're not distracted by the dumb screen. There's a reason those battery light lamps are as bright as they are. ;) But it seems the more advanced the Phantoms get, the more difficult it becomes. For example, on the P3A/P, they moved the IOC controls onto the screen where it used to be a hard switch on the controller. Still, if I was flying in an open field and wanted to fly old-school, I wouldn't hesitate.
