There has recently been a thread about the t10 working well so I thought I'd get a Chinese phone for <£100 which was the letv s3 x626 for £90 now £81
Will test fly tomorrow weather depending

here's the bench marks

Another good phone that fits very well into the controller and has a good bright screen is the Xiaomi Red 3s. If you can get one its less than 75 USD now.
 
Todays test wasn't the best, screen looked better and brighter but it had about 15s delay

Will test again Thursday Friday
 
Left Sony xz right le s3
You can see just about that I walk over at 4s the le s3 screen shows me walk over at 21s

Ignore the warning check app, vision sensor wanted calibration, came up 30s after takeoff first to dark for sensor then requires calibration

Found out that the mavic only records for 30mins at a time
just over an hour of recording and latency stayed the same

Last time I forgot to turn wifi offDSC_0014.jpg DSC_0056.JPG DSC_0066.JPG DSC_0120.JPG
 
Left is the le s3
Right is the Sony xz

You can see both phones are pretty much in sync
The s3 marginally behind after an hour or when the image is rapidly changing

Thought I would try visualizations due to MPEG encoding, cashed copy 2.3gb compared to clock 800mb

I bought a Redmi Note 4 (3GB/32GB) for use exclusively with my Mavic - it works really well.
Also the build quality is so good that I have decided not to throw any more money at Apple, and will stick with my iPhone 6!
 
Setup the quick launch buttons using go 4.1.10 normal then using app cloner using go 4.1.9 normal (green) and no internet (red)
