    I recently got into drone or quadcopters and i have a few questions I have looked at several sites and also the instruction manual and maybe someone can clarify a few things with me. I recently obtained a GPX Sky Rider Condor pro and I am wondering if and how a kindle fire can be connected to it I have downloaded the sky rider app and it doesnt seem to be connecting I have set my wifi to it

    Normally you would connect wifi ,it then may come up with a message saying internet poor this will now make it jump to the internet modem you normally use , you need to tell the kindle that it has to use drone and only the drone once it doing this you can open the app and it should work
    Kindle are not always the best to use , they are tied to Amazon and Amazon apps , also make sure the kindle will allow 3rd party apps

    I have used several 7 inch Fires with my quads. They all installed and worked very briefly. So, not well.

    The only one that has worked reliably is the 8 inch fire (2017). I use this with my Phantom 3S. Works well. Just no GPS for follow me.

    I assumed you installed Google Play Store first and then the quad app.

    Probably the 10 inch would work also. Have not gotten one of those yet.

    Good Luck.
