No. It will work with the WiFi only model.Do you have to have cellular for it to work?
Thank youNo. It will work with the WiFi only model.
Keep in mind the cellular version has the GPS hardware also. WiFi only version does not. If you plan on using the dynamic home point (set the hoe point after the P3 is in the air based on where the controller is) this will only work with the cellular model since the app needs a GPS signal to set the dynamic home point.
Yes, using the phone as a hotspot will also share the phone's GPS to the iPad. This is what I'm doing. I have a WiFi only iPad Air and iPhone 5s hotspot.OK just so I am clear. I will be using the iPad Air 2 WiFi only. I will not be able to set a home point with this? If that is the case, then if I use a hot spot (through cell) for initial take-off, will that allow it to record the home point for RTH? Thanks for clarifying.
Just to clarify................ you "will" be able to set the initial home point. You "won't" be able to set a "dynamic" home point. That's when you "change" from the initial home point to a "new" home point where the controller is currently located, such as if you've moved to another spot and want return-to-home to now be at that location.OK just so I am clear. I will be using the iPad Air 2 WiFi only. I will not be able to set a home point with this?

+1 16GB is all you need. Wi-Fi only if you have a hotspot on phone to load maps. Display is much easier to see in bright sunlight than the iPad Mini 2.II have the iPad Air 2 WiFi, which works great. I've had no issues during 30 flights so far. I use my iPhone as a hotspot before take-off to download map, then I switch on airplane mode on both devices. I have ordered the device holder for Inspire controller, as the plastic one that comes with the Phantom controller makes the large iPad wobble during use and I fear it might break one day.
