I also run Octopi on a Raspberry Pi 3 with my M2. A few days ago, I made a further upgrade that you might find interesting. I added the following bits to give it a local display, so I don't need to drag over a laptop or log in with my phone to do basic things like filament changes, shutting down the Pi, etc:
For the local controls, I installed the TouchUI plugin, and set up boot to browser.

Nice.. I just bought a 7" display to try and do this too... I think it's a generic display so hopefully I can use the same links to get it to work. :?
