This thing comes with an Octa-core 1.6GHz chip operating at 2.0GHz as the maximum clock. Comes in both 2 and 3GB RAM variants and has a storage space of about 32GB.

It comes with Android 9.0 right from the packing but eventually can be updated all the way to Android 10 through fashioning manual updates. After a single charge, it gives you average connectivity of 6-8 hours depending on the usage and is a stunning tablet to consider for your go-to droning.

When it comes to choosing a compatible drone tablet one doesn’t have to go as far as choosing a tablet for school or business activities. Even the sleekest and specs deficient tablet can do the job for you but it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t invest heartily into securing a tablet that is the best fit for the job. Google Nexus 9 is exactly that, it isn’t that tech-savvy as other tablets are and for that reason is quite cost-effective but when it comes to droning it is single-handedly the most robust choice one can ever make.

It offers standard 2GB RAM with 32GB storage capacity. Has an 8.9 inch IPS display serving at a resolution scale of 2048X1536 which is quite fascinating for a tablet this is cost-effective.

The battery life on this thing is also out of this world, as for a single charge it can carry you all the way to 8 hours or more of battery performance.

It might be a little costly for your taste but at the end of the day it does provide you with what you seek and that is performance. It delivers the elite connectivity controls and almost every drone brand out there is compatible with this version of the iPad.

It comes with a stunning 7.9-inch screen at a resolution rate of about 2048X1536 and with that comes the storage perceptibility it is capped at 128GB which is nothing short of amazing. Moving on it comes with an 8MP camera, has a dual-core A8 chip from Apple. At a single charge, this thing gives you an active performance-oriented session of about 10 hours and with easy connectivity controls, it can connect like magic with any of your drones.

The best thing is that you don’t have to keep on switching your tablet into the pairing mode whenever you need to refresh the connection, simply turn both things on and the iPad will be able to find your tablet within an inch of a second.

    1. Nope, unfortunately you need either a smart phone or a tablet to fly a DJI drone. If you need to get one cheap, black Friday is coming up soon, so you may be able to get a good price then!

      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  1. Hi, I do believe this is a great web site. I stumbledupon it ;
    ) I may revisit once again since i have saved as a favorite it.

    1. I have the DJI Mavic pro and I am trying to use the Samsung s3 and it runs the app but the video quality is horrible not sure what iam doing wrong

      1. Thanks for your comment.
        Are you talking about the video quality recorded onto your SD card or the quality displayed on your tablet? The quality of the video feedback on a tablet/ smart phone is always worse than is actually recorded, which is especially true of tablets. The DJI app does save the footage onto your device, however this is just a recording of what the screen sees whilst your flying.

        If you’re wanting to view your footage in it’s best quality, make sure you have an SD card inserted into the drone and the drone is recording. You can then watch the video file recorded on the card.

        Hope this helps and feel free to contact us with any more questions 🙂

  2. Im not that much of a online reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back later. Cheers

  3. I’m finding that the Lenovo Tab3 8 Plus 8″ tablet runs Go 4 with ease.
    Basic specs: 2Ghz CPU, 3Gb Ram, 1200X1920 screen, WiFi and GPS.

  4. Hi James, wondering if its possible to use a Samsung Galaxy tab e, for a DJI Spark? I see it’s not on your best list, and I’m just curious if it would suffice? Thanks Aaron

  5. I run my phantom 3 standard on my I phone 6s plus
    The phone screen is a little small and I have sun
    Glaring at the screen. With that said, my only
    Options a hood that goes over my phone.
    Or fly dusk or dawn.

  6. this may sound like a dumb question but you said its worth the slightly more money to go with the ipad 4 mini with cellular but will I also have to pay for a data plan monthly in order to utilize it?

    1. Yup, you will have to pay for data. Check your current phone plan though. Some include a second sim card at no extra cost.
