    I Purchased an iPad mini 2 to use with the mavic. The Dji go 4 app says it's not compatible. Right now I'm using the Dji go app but have a lot of lag in the video feed. Is anybody using the mini2 without video lag or had a problem downloading the go 4 app? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I use an iPad Mini 2 with DJI Go 4 and every once in a while it gets a little laggy...but to be honest, for the most part it's pretty solid. I did see a deal on the iPad Mini 4 Cellular at Best Buy the other day and I put some thought into pulling the trigger on it, but decided against it at the last moment.

    That makes me feel a little better. I'm not sure what the problem is. I was hoping the go 4 app would help with the lag.

    I got a 2nd-hand Ipad Mini 2 to work exclusively with the Mavic and am very, very happy with it. It certainly is compatible.

    If you can, try also to keep your tab for the UAV only and get rid of everything else but the DJI Go 4 app on the device.

    I'm using an ipad mini 2 and have had no problems with DJI GO 4 app and lag. I have only two apps running: Apple maps and DJI GO 4 app. All others are completely closed/exited.

    I have the wifi only version and the GO 4 app seems to cache map info of my area better with Apple maps open.

    Are you sure you have an iPad Mini 2? The iPad Mini 2 is definitely compatible with DJI GO 4.

    Try these tips.

    From my understanding it's a mini 2, or at least that's what I asked the guy for at Walmart. Starting to wonder if he sold me a version 1.

    Google the model number on the back of your iPad Mini to find the version.

    Omg! From a store? They don't make those anymore. You really got ripped off.

    They allowed me to exchange it for a mini 2.
