  • The another important factor to consider when choosing a tablet for your drone is their compatibility with the DJI GO app that will use every time whenever you fly it. The DJI Go app updated on regular basis so it’s important to get a tablet that is compatible and works properly with the app.
  • When you look for an Apple and Android device both of them work great but you need to make it sure that the device must be capable of running iOS 8.0 and android 4.1.2.

If you want to get the best results then we will recommend a 2.0+ GHz processor and 3GB of RAM or more is always better. If you are using multiple devices then check their specs and choose the most powerful one for flying your drone.
