This is EXTREMELY disappointing! I have a first generation iPad mini that I REALLY want to be able to use with my I1 for the onscreen display, but it isn't supported for the pilot app! Does anyone know of a hack to make this work? I really wish DJI would have included the first gen. Mini. I know it could have handle the interface and all. So know I am left wondering what to do to get the pilot app to work. My iPhone is just not a big enough screen for this app to do the job. Any suggestions? Someplace I can find an iPad mini refurbished somewhere in the ball park of $100.00 or something that's the correct version that works with the pilot app???

The processor is not fast enough to work with the streaming video from the Inspire. I had to upgrade from my first version of the iPad to the one with Retina display and the A7 processor. Apple gave me a $175 rebate for trading my old mini in for the newer model.

The Mini1 worked on the .9 iOS bus as mentioned above the A5 engine doesn't work on the lat two new versions of the iOS.

I just took delivery of a new Mini2 for this very reason. The Mini1 is now demoted to playing iTunes.
