I am finding my iPhone 7 (normal size) a little small and my iPad Pro Cellular (10.5" too big/heavy) for the Mavic, so was considering my options.
I have seen the Acer Iconia One 7 mentioned across a number of forums as being a good tablet for use with the Mavic - is anyone using one and care to share their experiences?
I understand the 780 model with the MediaTek processor is a good one to go for and has GPS so as long as I cache maps before flying I won’t really lose any functionality… Plus from Amazon they are only £65
I suppose the alternative is to buy an iPad mini, but that gets a bit more expensive as I would want the cellular version (for the GPS), so if the Acer is any good for this purpose that would be a bit of a result
Yeah I saw the reviews and I guess at that price it is to be expected.
Hopefully it would be good enough to run a single app. The screen resolution is fine (720p) and just about bright enough especially if used with a hood. It won’t fit into the controller handles, but I already have a mount.
Never used DJI Go on an Android devices and heard plenty of people saying it generally works better on Apple. Still might take a punt…
All my DJI app use has been on android, no fruit based devices in this house! In truth I gave up on my iPhone years ago when the battery life went through the floor. My OnePlus3t now lasts about two to three days!
I purchased the Acer and am not particularly impressed, but it is cheap. The screen is quite reflective and the device overall is a bit slow. However, it does quite a good job of running Go )but is slow to load) and doesn’t seem laggy, but very occasionally I get a tiny bit of image break up.
If you look at your flight records it seems to really struggle with performance. The other thing I’m not keen on is that it only just fits in the controller handles, feels more like it should be in a tablet holder but then this adds yet more bulk…
I think I will go back to my iPhone which despite a small screen is very good.
So I’m bringing this thread back to life it say that the Acer iconia is now useless, as of the latest DJI Go Update. There is so much lag and break up that it’s not funny, I switched straight over to my iPhone and it was perfect.
Thankfully the Acer is within the return period is it is going back and I will stick with my iPhone, although would prefer a slightly larger screen but that can wait.
