I have a jailbroken iPad mini. I was wondering if anybody knew of a jailbreak tweak that would allow me to download the DJI Pilot app onto my iPad mini. As of now the iPad mini is not natively supported by DJ I pilot app and probably never will. I'm not ready to upgrade my iPad since I just upgraded my Phantom.

Sorry I'm in similar position and will be easy and cheaper to buy a cheap android tablet than by a newer iPad !!!!

i can send you a link to the first dji pilot release that worked on the ipad mini. It will only work on a inspire remote as the P3 needs a newer version

I am sure iPad mini has some hardware missing that is required by new P3. I wouldn't recommend risking your drone with this.

The P3 works only on Andriod systems only! No iSO devices is supported yet! That's what the official website shows!

You're joking?
I thought that this was the reason that the P3 is still standing on my table:( I unboxed it yesterday and was eager to get moving - but even after getting "succesful" notification after the update of firmware - I can't connect.
The only action I get is that I can turn the cam on gimble up and down with the remote. No connection to the APP and nothing seems to connect.

(I basically find the "help" from DJI quite poor. Tried to hook up to their online chat help, but this was just all in Chinese:( )

Hope someone can give some pointers. After using P2 in several version I was quite optimistic to move on...

Does anyone know if an iPad WiFi only receives GPS location fron the Phantom 3 so it's location is shown on the map?

iPads with WiFi only don't have a GPS receiver.

Correct. You'll know where the bird is, the bird will know where it took off from, but the bird won't know where you are if you moved from the launch point. (Doesn't matter since there's no follow me implemented yet, and RTH returns to where it took off from)

I use my phone as a hotspot and wifi my ipad 3 to the phone so it gets a GPS signal where ever I am easy really

You use an iPad 3 with the phantom? Does it work reasonably well? how is the lag? Im guessing you used the iFunbox workaround?

So this controller doesn't have or they haven't implemented yet the choice to choose return to home or return to controller which is controlled by the Lightbridge system ?

Hi all, just bought a P3 (delivery this coming Friday) found an iPad mini cheap (1st gen) - from reading this post, I'm concerned that I won't be able to use the iPad mini first generation?

I'm hoping things have changed since the original post?

It was my thoughts that as long as I have ISO 8, my device would work with the dji pilot app.

Can anyone confirm this please?

Thanks,
Mark.

So it's not just about iOS 8, it's a hardware issue?

The first gen iPad mini has the A5 chip.
Isn't that a faster chip than is in the iPhone 5? I thought I read some are using their iPhone 5 with the the pilot app?

Dang, who wants buy an iPad mini...?

Mark.
