    It is ok I downloaded an app Easy Voice Recorder and I seems to work I will let you know

  2. Ron Texas254 on June 26, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Okay, so based primarily on this review by Captain Drone, but also one I saw yesterday from a YouTuber named OriginaldoBo, I decided to place an order for this tablet. Amazon has it listed for $649 with a coupon for $35 off, but Tripltek has it listed on their site for $599, so already less than on Amazon. I tried to place the order on their website and had a issue where the actual order page would not show up, it just showed a grey page. So I used their online support form and explained what was going on. I received an almost immediate response from Aurora.

    So first, re: Android OS updates, Aurora stated, "The software on the tablet is Android 8.1 because right now is the most stable Android version for military use. All the drone manufactures recommend android 4.4 and up. So you will not have any problems with futures updates" and "The Android version of the tablet will be updated in the future to keep the Tablet working with the Drone APPs updates." So I’m not sure whether the end user can perform the updates or if future updates will be tested by Tripltek and then released to end users (kind of like with cell phone companies, I guess).

    As for ordering, I mentioned the discount code "capaindrone" in my email and so was offered the tablet direct from Tripltek for $549. Aurora generated a PayPal invoice via email and I paid for it that way (you don’t need a PayPal account).

    I hope this information helps anyone else who may be interested in this tablet and I thank Captain Drone for yet another outstanding review of a very useful product (I can finally get rid of my iPad Mini, which I can hardly see out in the hot and bright Texas sun!!!).

  3. Ed Encinas on June 26, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    Hi Captain, I recently saw your review on the Tripltek Pro tablet and ordered one from Amazon. I am having only one issue (so far) which is that it won’t allow me to program the “function” button in the DJI Fly App. Any ideas on that? Ed

  4. Chris Buchanan on June 26, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    Great Tablet. But I fly Exclusively DJI so I just bought the smart controller instead.

  5. Polk Craig on June 26, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    This would be great with my new MA2

  6. Aerial Artistry on June 26, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    Will it work with the Dji HD FPV system? will it display the live video stream from the goggles ?

  7. jack kiplinger on June 26, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZ!! Wasted so much time TALKING>>>>>>>>Lost me!

  8. Ray Jackson on June 26, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Good video… thanks you convinced me after trying to fly my phantom and the air 2 with cell phone- looks like a great product , having a bright screen and being able to use it for multple applications should be a good investment( and IT IS NOT APPLE) I went to their website and the price was 599.00 and with a 50.00 discount(thanks CaptainDrone) it was 549.00 and free shipping. This is probably less expensive then and apple tablet and you can add 128 gig memory card. Seriously looking forward to getting this tablet.

  9. David Lowe on June 26, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    WOW! I have been looking at various tablets and phones, since my old phone isn’t even 64 bit operating system, so I’m hunting. This is cheaper than many cell phones and high end tablets and PERFECT for me! So I am saving my pennies!!!

  10. Pat Downey on June 26, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    Can you record audio with tripltek tablet as you are flying with your Marvic air 2

  11. MGFLYER on June 26, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    LOOKS nice I use a samsung note 8 it has an outdoor mode and it works pretty well and its a lot cheaper it’s just not as rugged as that one so if I break this one I would probably look into getting that one (GREAT VID)

  12. kelly gooch on June 26, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    If anyone buys this tablet and you cannot connect the phone with Verizon, which I could not, you can go to Google and get the SECOND LINE app to make the phone work.

  13. KC on June 26, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    Has anyone experimented with the so called virtual reality glasses / goggles ? I am NO tech geek but if they work for video gaming, why not when flying a drone ? Screen glare is my #1 complaint about flying drones.. One would thing someone could come up with a good solution using goggles, glasses or flip up / down Monocular similar to the setup used by SWAT teams and the military…

  14. 700 CLUB on June 26, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Yep that’s the one I need

  15. Knife-Wielding Spider God on June 26, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    I don’t know capt., looks like a $50 tablet in a $600 protective case.

  16. Graeme Heinrich on June 26, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    No HDMI!?

  17. Gus Brink on June 26, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Will it do screen record

  18. Pat Downey on June 26, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Thanks for that info. I enjoy your reviews. Keep up the good work

  19. Jason Blankenship on June 26, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Nice tablet but also extremely expensive for 600 dollars one could buy the mavic mini 2 or even i nice camera i guess if you have the money go for it.

  20. CaribbeanZapatta on June 26, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Is there a way to use with DJI FPV ?

  21. John Maguire on June 26, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    Hi captain Drone do you no will the discount code work if i was to be ordering from United Kingdom can it be ordered directly from Tripltek or from amazon uk.

  22. Anthony Johnson on June 26, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    so I should sell my crystal sky 7.8 if I’m planning to up grade to the DJI Air 2 or Mavic pro 2.

  23. 700 CLUB on June 26, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Wow, that’s nice really nice.

  24. Wayne Neyland on June 26, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    I received my tripltek model T7121 yesterday from amazon. Today I placed the device online via tether to my note10, both android devices. I booted up the tripltek device and went strait to the playstore app on the device. Typed in:

    dji fly app mavic air 2

    only to realize that the dji fly app was NOT an option on here. So I verified that the tripltek device is running android 9 and all should be well.

    went back to playstore and typed in:

    dji fly app mavic air 2 android

    STRIKE 2, only options are for dji go 4 (not compatible with mavic air 2)
    and then dji store, now I am seeing dji pilot but no where does that state that it works with the mavic air 2.

    I purchased this particular 1200 nit tablet for the same reason as others but more specifically for the dji fly app availability and it still is NOT available to me, WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO FIX THIS as I have a high end client tomorrow that I want to show the bright screen to. PLEASE HELP and thank you!!!

  25. Guillermo Guevara on June 26, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Looks great, but that thing is super heavy, 1.45 Lbs!!

  26. Gene Fox Green Mountain Droning on June 26, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Nice tablet little experience for me but sure it is worth it

  27. Stephan Jeffery on June 26, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Good lord this thing looks bullet proof!

  28. Mike Harris on June 26, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    I can’t access Tripltek website, just get a bank white page on my iPad or phone, tried different browsers with same results🤨

  29. Greywolf on June 26, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    1 walt
    2 10000 mah

  30. Pilotsharks Hanger on June 26, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    I have one and it’s nice, However, with DJI update frim wear you do not get any of the new cool features, just like and Android.

  31. CJ Jacobs on June 26, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    I guarantee that the military isn’t using this tablet or any derivative of it. I also wouldn’t trust this to be updated on a regular enough basis to be compatible with the drone apps that most use.

  32. Archilles on June 26, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Recently just placed an order for the Tripltek as after the review and a few others it has more purpose than the SC. just slide in the Sim and i can use it as my phone as well not to mention multiple other uses. Thanks for the good review, btw also got the D as well:)

  33. MrJc11419 on June 26, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    I have the pro version and there may be an issue with the compass not being accurate or not functioning. Running google maps, if I point to north, the icon will point to south. If I rotate left, the icon rotates right. Running dji fly app 1.2.2 or higher, not getting exact tablet position. Tried to calibrate but no go. Anyone with the tablet experiencing similar issue?

  34. Alfredo Gallegos Jimenez on June 26, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Thank you very much, today I apply this PROMO code ( 05Cdrone) !

  35. Michail Louvranos on June 26, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    What cable Do I need to connect it to the mini 2 cotroller? Thanks

  36. Talasay on June 26, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    I have one and a couple things – the cable for the new controller has to be usb C to usb C. Also this tablet is very heavy and thick so you have to get creative with a mount. I also have a CS and this one is much brighter and bigger. Also battery life is very good and you can install any app for android where the CS is very limited. I paid $599 on Amazon. I think they have a sale on them now for $549

  38. Ferdinand Angeles on June 26, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Very nice specs and looks very tough too and it is not as expensive as an iPad

  39. antebellum45 on June 26, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Happy to find out there’s a replacement for my 7.85" Crystal Sky here in the Ttopics!!

  40. Nodez on June 26, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Worst Support EVER, I have ordered while Out Of Stock, Now thinking of cancelling as they cannot reply to support questions. Not sure I wanna deal with a company like that what will they be like when Support is really needed?

  41. New Millennium Productions on June 26, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Yo i need that tabby

  42. Ger Gerrits on June 26, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    I bought Tripltek T7121. It is one its way to Belgium, I hope. I lover your reviews . Best wishes for 2021

  43. robwas on June 26, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    I guess the PROMO code "captaindrone" doesn’t work in Amazon, just tried it to no avail.

  44. Michael Wilson on June 26, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    Great review sir. Can you take the micro SD card from the drone, place it in the Tripltek, and watch the footage that you just shot while still in the field?

  45. D&D MELTS on June 26, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    Great review

  46. A.K.O on June 26, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Almost didn’t make the video because of the intro ,seriously it’s not good

  47. Mikespeedyfpv on June 26, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Great tablet looks amazing the tripltek

  48. Michael Wilson on June 26, 2021 at 11:52 pm

It has 8GB RAM 128GB ROM, faster and more efficient Octacore Processor(12FFC), Faster Mali G72 GPU(900Mhz), Android 9.0, more LTE bands(B38/39/40/41) and (B1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/17/20/28). Powerful version for professionals who need a Tablet that can handle high demand Graphics (GPU) Aplications like Drone Deploy, Drone Harmony, UAVenture, Kittyhawk… $675.00. If your order hasn’t shipped and you want to upgrade, you can do so for $75. Just send Tripletek an email and they will fix you up. I did it and it’s easy…. and no, your Captain Drone promo code won’t work on the upgrade if you have already used it. lol

  49. Lee L on June 26, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Why not spend half and get a 100% compatible IOS tablet?

  50. CaribbeanZapatta on June 26, 2021 at 11:55 pm
