GPS is only needed for resetting the home point to the controller location or for follow me. You can fly perfectly without.

Gps also helps loading the maps so it knows your location. Fully suggest getting one with GPS .

You don't need a phone or tablet with gps. You can get the dual blutooth gps addon, much more accurate than any built in gps.

Also you don't need gps to loaf maps. They load through a wifi connection which you can chache before you fly, or use a cell phone and tether your cellphone. Gps has nothing to do with loading maps. It only marks your postion on the map.
