    I have a phantom 4 I'm still waiting to order the Mavic

    When I start up my controller for the phantom 4 it also shows the mavic.

    My question is, Will I be able to use the Phantom 4 controller to fly the Mavic?

    Thanks for your support

    No. It's not compatible with the Mavic.

    The reason you see the Mavic is simply because the Go app itself is universal, able to control most of DJI's recent consumer products.

    I got my Mavic this week and Yes it does avoid obstacles just like my Phantom 4. I found I could use my I Pad Mini 4 by putting Velcro on the two small arms of the Mavic Controller and Velcro on the back of my I Pad Mini 4 and I used the short cable off my Phantom and the Mavic works Great a five minute fix. Using DJI Go app.

    Not sure if I can post a link to the dji forum but here is a thread of a guy that just inserted his ipad mini directly into the Mavic controller. To be honest it looks pretty good to me... better than the adapter mods I've seen so far. iPad mini in controller arms works!

    So, no adapter needed for the iPad mini 4?

    Not sure why anyone would bother with velcro when you can just stick the iPad mini right in there without modification.

    COG would be better with velcro, and possibly more secure. Definitely have to get a 90 degree plug for both applications though.

    Wonder why no one from DJI bother to test it. Or maybe they just like to keep silent =)

    The only thing about using the iPad mini in that manner is that you can't use a shade unless someone comes up with a different design.

    seems to be putting alot of stress on the holders which can possibly encourage premature wear or breakage
