Hi everyone. I am about to buy a new iPad. Does anyone know if the iPad mini 6 work with dronedeploy. If not what iPad would you recommend.
It should but I would definitely do a short test flight with the different modes to be safe. We have no issues with a Mini 5 on the latest iOS so I would think the new one’s hardware should perform a little better. I didn’t know it was that big of a jump…
Started with an iPad 5, was clumsy, too big. Switched to iPad Mini 5, much better fit on the Phantom 4 Pro V2 controller. Only problem has been overheating on hot days flying stand counts. Added a hood which helped, but two rubber bands on the mount, to give an air space for cooling, seem to have fixed that.
It gets hot in Texas too. Check out the XNaut cooling case.
I use the iPad Mini 5 and still have the iPad Mini 4 as a backup. I have two of the Xnaut cooling cases which work well into the low 90’s - if you keep the iPad out of the direct sunlight.
I am very interested to see the iPad 6, but waiting to see what the Mavic Pro 3 brings to the table as a P4P replacement.
This new product looks like an interesting alternative to the Xnaut:
We start to see issues on flights of two batteries or more at 85-90F but the XNaut with a hood do a great job. I was able to rig a power pack to the back instead of using their mount and it works great. Better than using the AA’s.
