    Yes, the Samsung Galaxy Notes will fit into the Mavic remote controller. You'll most likely have to use it without a case though. The remote controller can only hold devices that have a thickness between 0.25-0.33 inches.

    thanx a lot to let me be sure of it.

    but actually i have 1 more question: there is any difference between a prototype Mavic pro shipped from England earlier (a friend of mine should receive it tomorrow or the day after) and the other shipped from the main factory at first week of november??

    No clue. No one has a production model as of yet. At least, none that are sharing any info.

    I picked up an Acer Iconia One 7 today for $ 65 bucks Canadian just to try it out. Works like a charm (only done initial testing/flying at this point) and fits in the clamps with no magic or adapters. The USB cable coming out the side is a bit awkward for grip so I am going to pick one up that has a 90 head on it and then it will be perfect. I wanted a dedicated controller screen for the MAVVIE to prevent me from having to pull my iPhone 6 in and out of the case and gonging away as emails and texts came in and the screen on this baby is WAY bigger than the iPhone 6.

    So far it is 100% and for $ 65 bucks I could not resist trying. So far..... perfect.

    But I guess you cannot use Follow Me or reset home point on the fly as no GPS?

    That's correct since it's a Wi-Fi only device. You could still reset the home point to the Mavic's current position on the fly though.

    Do you have the HD model? It looks like there are a few models.

    It's not supported by DJI, but some people are using that device with DJI GO.

    Are you using your iPhone as a hot spot to the tablet?

    I posted an easy mod you can do so it fits better in the controller without destroying anything.

    That must be approaching its payload limit, how are you going to release the incendiary device when over the target?
