    No it's too old and slow to work correctly. I use a iPad mini 2 and it's the bare minimum for iPads. A7 processor or higher...the iPad 2 uses a A5 processor...

    I have an older iPad 4gen (model MD942LL/A). It works fine in all aspects with DJI GO app, however, now that I'm using Litchi app I'm having serious degradation & lag on the video feed.
    It is only a wifi model with no Cell service but it's been working great so far.

    I haven't tried it. If the specs match another device from my list, it'll probably work.
