Hi, getting ready to purchase an X, looking for recommendations for the BRIGHEST and largest mobile device or pad for viewing at the controller.....I would prefer iOS over Android because of a larger
variety of apps....but really hoping to find something that will have no problem outside in bright sunlight. Will be using over the Chesapeake Bay......thanks very much in advance for any and ALL feedback!!

Also I read somewhere that the Android system is needed for GPS/follow me? Is this correct?

Typically drones that have a "follow" function use the device GPS, so if you plan to use that feature be sure and get a device with GPS. For iOS devices that means it must be a cellular iPad (you do not need a cellular connection).

Enjoy!

thank you for the response....so based on my reading would you agree that the following Ipad mini 3 would absolutely work?
as long as it had ios 9.2-9.3?

iPad mini 3 (Wi-Fi + Cellular) - MH3F2LL/A* - A1600
