  • More Litchi’s altitude problem descriptions

    By altitude holder
    1. Another waypoints mission headed for a below ground landing. I did a simple waypoints mission, as follows : I set up a vertical climb to waypoints at 50 feet, 100 feet then 150 feet, using straight lines, not curved ones. Once at the 150 foot waypoint the mission ended there, hovering. I brought it down manually. It came down steadily then it halted the descent at about 4 feet when it sensed the ground. I then looked at the display which showed the crafts altitude to be at 90.2 feet. If it weren’t for bottom sensors the thing would have slammed into the ground, while trying for the additional 90.2 feet of altitude reduction. 2. Now, a similar but a NON waypoints mission flight. I took off vertically to about 150 feet and paused there a few seconds while adjusting the camera angle. Then over a distance of 1/4 mile, gradually climbed to 400 feet. Spent some time at 400 feet, panning the video. Once done panning I implemented RTH. When the craft appeared above me and was coming down, at about 150 feet I halted the RTH. I then brought it down manually. I brought it straight down steadily, but not too fast in order to avoid vortex ring state problems. It halted the descent at about 4 feet when it sensed the ground. I then looked at the display which showed the crafts altitude to be at 38 feet. This is a lot less of an error than the 90.2 foot error that occurred with the waypoints mission. In both this and the above flight I always had between 13 to 17 satellites. It could be that the above Waypoint Mission calculates altitude wrongly in a way that accumulates more and more error as more and more waypoints are passed, but when flying manually, passing no waypoints, the altitude calculated seems to contain less error. 3. More Litchi’s altitude problem descriptions I had a litchi waypoint mission where the craft (phantom 4 std, IOS 11.2.5, litchi 2.1.0) flew straight up to 200 feet then out to about 1/4 of a mile to an altitude of 400 feet. From there it did a slow pan videoing some mountains. Then it came back to video a building located about 100 yards to my right. On the way back I had it descend from 400 feet altitude gradually down to 300, then to 200 then to 150 as it was POI’ing the building. Once close to the building I had it go to 125 feet then partially circle it. I used 125 feet cause there were telephone poles there that were about 65 feet tall. On the way to video the building I could see the craft descending, and when it should have leveled out comfortably above the telephone poles height, it instead kept descending. Before I could find the pause button it had gone below telephone pole height, and below tree height. I lost sight of it and thought it had probably crashed over there. So I waited, then after some seconds it appeared in the sky again on the far side of the building and did return. On reviewing the onboard video, the craft, descending below the telephone pole and trees level, turned to circle the building. It threaded its way between pole wires (cable tv or phone wires, that were only about 25 feet up) that were well below the top most wires. Then for some reason it descended to about 8 feet above ground level, gradually gained enough altitude to get above nearby scrub trees, but still much lower than it should have been at, then it seemed to regain itself and did climb out to a better altitude and finished the mission as it was supposed to. I couldn’t tell if it hit wires while threading them which might have caused the craft to upset and drop to the 8 foot level before regaining control, or if it was from some other reason.
  • Great for missions, not so much for free flying

    By SlickDaGato
    This app would get 4 stars, except there is no “radar” locator (like in the DJI app, that shows your location and heading in relation to the controller). This feature for some reason is left out of the Apple version of the Litchi app. Wish I had know that before I bought it.
  • Latest update

    By 2016 hd cvo
    Having problems with aircraft in waypoint mode. Flying along and all of the sudden leaves the flight course. The only command aircraft responds to is the Rth button. This was a much used mission and never had problems before the update. Tried a different mission and had similar results. Then I landed the aircraft and tried to fly manually and no responses what so ever. I’ve been using litchi for a ear know and really enjoy using it. I’m sure this problem is a bug in the update. Hopefully you will be looking into this issue soon
  • Keeps getting better

    By Shysingh
    Litchi allows me to get the most out of my Inspire Pro .. adding functionality that DJI Go just cant do. Most of the functions that would otherwise require a new drone from DJI, Litchi addresses it with software it’s not for beginners but a powerful tool with some understanding of the parameters
  • Calibration

    By SaJo U.S.
    I bought this app a month ago, when I try to calibrate the Mavic Drone, it fails, and still happens.
  • Won't even up the first time! If a refund isn't issued I'll be forced to file a chargeback.

  • Disoriented

    By Rgross316
    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.
  • Would like to see added feature

    By MagnusDrives
    To help with planning, I would like to see some sort of preview of what coverage the camera will get from a given waypoint when aimed in given direction. Also would like some way of recording the point, orientation, and gimbal pitch so I can duplicate a still photo from one flight to the next, without wasting a lot of time just inching back to a certain point. This is different from setting a POI because I might want to frame my subject off-center, maybe according to the rule of thirds, which is common in still photography.
  • New update don't work

    By Upholsterbob
    Will not work on my iPad anymore the newest update makes it unusable! Hope Litchi fixes it since I paid for it.
  • Can't make it work
