    Just wondering what tablets people are using.
    What's the best screen in outdoor situations (low screen reflectance)?
    Does it need to have a decent processor to cope with the feed, or does the drone/controller do this job??
    What size best suits the controller???

    If you're referring to the Phantom 3 or 4, you can find a list of recommended and commonly used tablets here.

    i like the size of my nexus 7 (ver 2, 2013) and with the anti glare screen protector it is pretty good.

    My advice is get more rather than less. Important to me: 1. Ability to see the screen easily outdoors. 2. Can it tap future features you might want ie. gps, altitude (barometer), processing power required by some apps. 3. Convenience such as LTE.

    I started on an Ipad mini 2 wifi and am now using an Ipad mini 4 LTE. I'm very happy with it. Obviously, I should have just bought the 4 in the first place.

    At someone's suggestion here I bought an Insignia Flex Elite 7.85 Android and love it, high resolution, nice size and great price at Best Buy-it was then only $99, and has a very bright screen which is a biggie for me since I had been using my iPhone 5S.

    Insignia™ - Flex Elite - 7.85" - 16GB - White/Silver

    These threads come up maybe a couple times a month. Seems the Nexus 7 2013 is the most popular tablet.

    Don't forget the Nvidia Shield K1. It's an excellent tablet too!
