I see, I appreciate the advise and quick response. I'll check to see if I can figure out what processor this thing has and if it's the A6...I might try using the vid above. Have you heard of any flyaways or loss of control using if forcing the app?
From my research the iPhone 5 (A6) and the iPad 4, (A6X) work well with the above workaround... I would try it and test it out with your phantom on the ground before you by a tablet... If it lags on the ground and your not comfortable flying then get a tablet, but if it works reasonably well you could save yourself $200.
