Hi Everyone,

I posted a question a couple of weeks ago about my recently purchased Mavic Air 2 (which replaced my Phantom 3 Pro) and the 'jerky' videos I was getting using an iPad mini 2. I tried some of the answers I got, which improved it, but did not resolve it completely. One option that was suggested as upgrading to a iPad mini 5.I left that one till last because it involved spending money on a new Apple Tablet. However, I did buy an iPad mini 5 and its like a different experience altogether. I can use all the 4K videos I like and the results are clear and smooth without a trace of jerkiness or shudder. As an aside, I buy a lot from eBay and so I tried to get a fairly recent mini 5, but the bids were all getting close to the price of a brand new Amazon price which included a 12 months guarantee, so thats what I did, and got a next day service, brilliant. Not only has it improved the results from the Mavic air 2, which I love, but actually the mini 5 is streets ahead of the mini 2 and has rekindled (no pun intended) my use of the iPad.
Thanks to all those who responded to my question.
Bill

Thank you for sharing, my next move as well, when I get more cash.
