The Spark is one of DJI’s latest masterpieces, especially when you fly it using the controller and not your smart phone. While it may be more convenient to use your smart phone, pairing a tablet with the DJI Spark remote controller gives you the best of both worlds.
DJI released their major improvement to their camera stabilization system through the Spark, which currently sits at a price tag of around $500 dollars. HD videos, a speed of 31 mph, a flight time of up to 16 minutes, and gesture control that uses your fingers and hands to fly perfectly.
With all of this in mind, we went on a quest to find the best tablet for DJI Spark instead of the best smart phone for DJI Spark. Pairing a tablet with the controller gives you a bigger and better picture no doubt, so let’s jump right in.
