    I purchased the app a few months back and used it for the 1st time yesterday. A few observations I noted were : 1. Unable to view the contents of the SD card using the app. 2. Shot using "Follow Me" mode, I heard it saying Recording started and stopped, to my surprise that content was not available in the SD card when I checked it once I reached home. If I was able to access it on spot, I could have reshot it. Which brings me back to Point 1.

  • Great app (sometimes) Jan 4, 2019

    By mnnvccz
    Setting way points are great first 8 missions great out of contact for 45 seconds or so dji spark continues mission thought was best thing ever. Next time lose connection drone never returns (crash?) look for drone nothing doesn’t really give you accurate location just where your drone drops connection from remote. Drone # 2 dji spark figure maybe a fluke 3rd time flying drone similar mission with waypoints clearly defined, loss of contact drone # 2 lost. Very disappointing since I was under impression that if drone lost contact it would continue mission worst case setup to rth. Very disappointing to lose two drones and worst part is how cool app operates and had made run at least 8 times prior no problems. I would appreciate any insight as to why the sudden failure/loss of drone from what seems like such a promising app. Any insight would be appreciated I still Have waypoint miSsions saved And would be happy to share just to see if it’s user error or application problem. I want to continue to use app but I can’t do it at expense of buying new drone every couple of weeks.

  • Needs a few upgrades Apr 2, 2018

    While generally a really good app, there a few of things I’d like to see to make it better. One is that the waypoint editing window covers the waypoint I’m editing. I suggest offsetting the editing window to one side of the interface while showing the waypoint/POI on the opposite side of the interface. Next is a tripod mode that allows a single point in space to be recorded so I can return the drone to that point. With waypoints, I have to record at least two points, which isn’t always an option. This mode would be useful for still shots that need to be repeatedly recorded from the same perspective. Would also like to see a partial orbit function with back and forth motion. The purpose is to fly low and center on an object that is partially surrounded by high objects. Flying full orbits is not always an option because of trees or cliffs behind the subject. Next is an improvement of the panoramic function. The lower rows do not need the massive overlap that results from selecting a decent overlap on the row that covers the horizontal plane.

    Great app! If in track mode you could set the altitude with the joystick it would make it much more usable. Right now lowering the altitude below its starting point alt only works while you hold the joystick down, as soon as you let go it will resume to it's initial altitude.

  • Needs enhancements based on Customer Feedback Dec 11, 2020

    By Dean-Sacramento
    Like so many software developers it appears Litchi does little to base release functional enhancements on Customer Feedback! When have they sent surveys to ALL registered customers to ask for “Real Users wish lists”, and then Post them and regularly update the list in order of importance? NONE, Autonomous? Yes. Take the DJI QuickShot’s for instance? Why weren’t ALL of these expanded upon by Litchi? Wouldn’t it be nice if the video capture would NOT stop after completing a single “circle”? Why not rather keep the video recording until the User presses the video button again? Or why not reverse the “Spiral” path and again keep the video recording? Wouldn’t an inward spiral be a very cool path and wouldn’t this seem to be a fairly simple programming change? Where is the Agile methodology in this development cycle? Well, sadly it appears to be the old SDLC software development cycle. And lastly, it’s been a year between software releases. Do we have another year to wait for something substantial?

    The application is stable and worth the money but needs upgrades on mavic mini follow me don't get the subject on the center of the screen but on the bottom and if you move it loses you for some secs. ON FOLLOW ME ANY STICK YOU PRESS WON'T DO ANYTHING, what if you want to prevent crash you can only press pause.. Bad ?? Object tracking is bad it can't track for much time and it loses it ( tested on people walking). I want updates for an app that cost 25 euros!!

    Seriously Disappointed in the Litchi team, no updates since November makes me believe that the developers of the app no longer care, or at the very least, are no longer active in making this app the stellar app this once was. I have owned this app for more than 3 years now, used it multiple times, so I am super sad to see it literally fading away into another inactive app.

  • Not good Oct 30, 2017

    By ckdmj1
    Had three flights with Litchi now, one fpv and two flight mode flights. Fpv worked just like DJI, orbit caused the craft to fly well below the set altitude causing a crash into a tree instead of an orbit over it. Today I tried track, the main reason I purchased Litchi. Well after the app crashed a few times on my iPad mini I should have went back to using DJI Go but I wanted to test that awesome feature. In short the gimbal kept pointing straight down and saying subject lost then the phantom flew away and rammed into the side of a building nearby before flying off the other direction while descending into the ground. I hear so many great things about this app but hate that it seems to crash me every time I use flight modes with it. Never have come close to a crash with the DJI app?

    The app is great but just wanted one thing. In the map view their should be something that shows which direction the remote is facing instead of just the blue dot, and if its facing the drone. When I get far out I tend to loose signal cause I’m not 100% pointing towards the the drone. Also it would be awesome if there was a toggle switch added on the FPV screen to turn the LED lights on and off instead of having to cycle through the settings to do so. For what I paid for the app I don’t think that’s to much to ask.

    My mavic mini is in pieces after the return to home function failed. Error message popped up "this function is not supported". 60min later I found my smashed drone after it flew 90 degrees in the opposite direction to home across an open field. I thought this app was decent until it failed. This little exercise of using a 3rd party app has turned out quite costly. User be warned!!!

    I use this app with a DJI Mavic Pro (1st gen). With this app you can program a mission for the drone to launch, fly to waypoints, look at points of interest, adjust its orientation, camera tilt, speed, elevation and take actions at waypoints. You can bulk edit waypoints. You can do this offline with the App anytime. Same with Orbits. With the Litchee Mission Hub website you can plan missions on the PC. With a Chrome extension even fly them as tours in google earth.

  • Works great on my Spark Mar 3, 2021

    By Bigbadwolf1999
    Can’t speak for the any other models, but I’ve used this app strictly for Waypoints on my P3 (originally) and later on now Spark. Never once have I had a problem with it, and believe me; I’ve sent both drones on suicide missions. Pushed them to the absolute edge of their battery limits, in light rain, snow, and 25mph winds. Guess what? It always came back. My Spark has been pretty buggy too. A common issue with them is it loses GPS signal out of nowhere and goes into ATTI mode. But with Litchi Waypoint mode I’ve never had it fly off into the sunset never to return. So after YEARS of using this app, I give it 5 stars.

    Typically I don't believe these posts. I watched a lot of videos and did a lot of research before buying this app. I am very pleased with it for my DJI spark. It's simple to use and so far hasn't crashed on me. It actually seems to work better than the DJI go app. Definitely worth the money!

  • The Quintessential Mavic App Sep 22, 2018

    By QeTio
    I exclusively use Litchi whenever I fly one of my drones. There is no better way to create smooth flowing HD videos. The missions are extremely easy to create in Litchi Mission Hub and even easier to fly. The display and options are simpler and easier to use than DJI GO 4. Also I have flown several missions where RC signal was lost and my Mavic continued the mission and returned to home safely. I recently bought a Mavic 2 Pro and it’s great that Litchi support is already available.

  • Litchi problems Aug 23, 2017

    By Zz miss app
    Posted in error I previously posted the Litchi app did not work in course lock or take photos. I was trying to use the app on an ipad2, which is not powerful enough to run the app. I have not found a way to delete the post, so ignore the post. Course and home lock do not work and will not take pictures with my ipad version with a phantom 3S. I am afraid to use the app outside my back yard and it is not worth the price.

  • Love the app Jun 23, 2020

    By happygingy710
    I heard about litchi about 3 years ago when I only had a DJI phantom 3 standard I recently just started using the app with my spark and I found a bug revolving the sd card. If you format the sd card with the litchi app it will corrupt the sd card and the only way to fix it is to pop it into the computer and reformat it that way. I found that after that if you take a pic using the app it will format the sd card the way it’s suppose to be. Just a interesting and annoying but but that still doesn’t change the fact that this app is incredible it has allows me to do things with my drones that djis own app couldn’t do.

    This app is a huge improvement from DJI Fly. It has lot's of tracking options and they work mostly great. The Track mode that uses AI to track any object you select on the screen needs work. Suggestion: enable recording of audio from the phone and drone video in the same file without having to record your screen.

  • Track mode Aug 29, 2018

    By Mommygigi1
    The litchi app falls wayyyyy short of preforming as well as Dji go4 when it comes to tracking. While using litchi my mavic constantly losses the subject even under the simplest of conditions. I cannot track myself walking my dogs from 30-20 feet high and only 20 to 30 feet away. Other than that the waypoint feature is light years ahead of Dji go 4.

  • Misleading app info Apr 6, 2019

    By ChrisE1G
    So we all buy this for the waypoints. In my case, for the Air. In EU, the distance of the remote is 500 meters, in 5ghz mode. That’s the theoretical limit. In reality it is obviously much less. Enter waypoints and litchi. First of all, the iOS version is lacking elevation height data in waypoint planning mode. The major issue here is that, if I lose the RC signal to the Mavic Air while it’s flying a mission, all the speed settings you’ve might’ve added on various waypoints will stop functioning. The Mavic Air will use the speed you programmed for the waypoint(s) where the connection between the Air and the RC is lost, this means that the Mavic Air will continue on the same speed it had when the signal was lost. This is plain dangerous. What if planned a very slow POI fly-by, I lose the connection for whatever reasons, that bird won’t make it back. Automatic gimbal movement will also stop working, which means it won’t center a point of interest, nor will it execute any planned gimbal movements. Fairly major issues. These things need to be made clear in the app info here on the AppStore. And perhaps take a bit of time to comment on said issues, please?

    It's a very good app. When you first open it you will be confused for sure. If you spent 1-2 batteries to learn the basics you won't believe that only one app can change your drone. I am quite disappointed cause it's been almost 3 or more months that dji published the sdk for dji mini and they didn't give to mini pilots the capability of waypoints yet...

    By marklyn3500
    I initially loved this app because you could do a lot with it and it's great to be able to set up missions online. After using the app for a few months and becoming proficient I started to find issues and documented the steps to recreate the issues abs and sent to Litchi. So far the five issues I've sent in have been ignored and not even acknowledged so if you have $23 burning a hole in your pocket, I'd recommend taking a look at Hangar Autopilot. That's what I plan to do.

    Please find and fix this bug ASAP, sometimes when exit from follow mode (and another mode too) my mini can't regain stick input control from RC, its fly out of control and cannot be stopped, signal from rc still full bar and clear fpv, lucky for me, my mini only have minor damage crash caused by this bug.
