    Hello all,
    I just got my P3A yesterday and tried to use my wife's tablet with the pilot app. All went well until I hit the record button the the transmitter, then the video went all pixelated and never came back. I believe it even crashed the app. The tablet is a Dragontouch M8 with kitkat 4.4 on it. Any advice? Should I just pick up a different tablet to use for this? If so what would be a cheap tablet that would work well. I did a search and see that the Nexus 7 and 9 work, also one member reporting the samsung tab 4. Any others out there?

    Also, I downloaded the app from DJI's website, not the google play store. The app runs fine on my Galaxy note 4, but I wanted to use a larger screen since the playback is in HD and looks soo good.

    Here's the link to the tablet I tried.
