OK, by your post I wasn't sure you were aware of the official list. You may want to edit the title to reflect your list intentions. Also, were you only listing Android devices (I realize Android is so fragmented it deserves a list)?

I did see that but found it odd no one had reported any iOS devices. The 6+ and the iPad Mini Retina 2 seems to work well with the app. ;)

@theTupper EDIT:
  • Starlink iOS app version 1.3.19 both devices
  • 6+ IOS version 9.0.2
  • IPad iOS version 9.3.3

I am eventually going with a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8" T350 for my flying. I use an Verizon Elippsis right now which works and is okay but I want a slightly bigger pad and I like the Samsung platform.

Thanks for your input Michael. How much storage space do you recommend on a new tablet? I can't see using a lot of memory for each video since battery time is short....But really have no idea how quickly a 16gb would hold on video like this..... Wonder if the 9'7" tablet would fit in the console?

Negative on the HD space. But what I would do is move files to a PC then to a external portable HD which are very affordable now days and can hold more than you will need. I have two. One is 500GB and the other is 1TB.

Video is not normally saved to the device. I use AZ Recorder to record the screen for each flight and these take up some space if I forget to copy them off. Starlink does have an "Album" function that can be used to view images and video on the X-Star but I think these are reduced resolution from that on the microSD card.

Going to table my full functionality note for the Nexus 6 at least for the X-Star WiFi. Having an issue now where I can't access cell data for mapping when connected to the drone. This could be an issue with my specific device as I've had some other problems lately. I can replicate the issue with a wifi-enable toy drone and action camera as well. Will update upon resolution of the issue.
  • Motorola Nexus 6
  • Android 7.0
  • MAPPING/WAYPOINT FUNCTIONALITY ISSUE
  • StarLink App version 2.0.1.18

Works with my Nexus 5,
Android 6.0.1
StarLink 2.0.1.18
Everything works so far, too soon to say "full functionality" .... I'm that new!

Has anyone had success with ipad mini, model A1432. I know it is not in approved list. Does run app, but won't connect to drone.
Thought I'd ask before I tried finding a different usb cable.
Running ios 9.3.5 with standard charging cable.

..... Update

I tried a different cable, both are Apple oem, and it WORKS! Disconnected and tried the first cable, and it wouldn't work again, so cable issue. Too soon to tell if "everything" works, but all the settings appear where/as they should, and I can control the camera from the app .... much easier on the eyes.

And yes .... as a comment I saw on another forum, the placement of the USB port is NOT the greatest.

I have only had my x-star premium for a few days now, but I am currently using an Insignia Flex 8 tablet running Android 6.01. So far I have had no problems other that the screen being very reflective and difficult to see in bright sunlight. I hope a anti glare scren protector will help. The tablet is from Best Buy and cost me about $70.
