    DJI Mavic Pro USB control?

    Hi Everybody, I'm trying to implement autonomous autopilot on Mavic Pro. Is there a way to control DJI Mavic Pro using USB cable connected to either directly to the drone, or the controller. The purpose is to access to real-time telemetry data using RaspberryPI and/or PC. Also would need to...

    Zip line in Autopilot causes drone to spin in circles

    I have an Air and have an issue with Autopilot when flying a zip line. If I tell it to go to point A or B it will go to the point, but then stop and spin around in circles. I had this issue with the Spark too. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Gimbal speed in AP

    The Go app has the ability to change the pitch speed of the gimbal on the Air. Is there any way to do this in AP or Litchi?

    my drone autopiloted into tree, fell 50 ft onto grass then tarmac!?!?!?

    I was piloting my mav air from one side of my street to another at twilight. I know it wasn't the best time I was at 8 ft about to land when the battery fell critically low. the drone autopiloted to around 50 ft, which is half of what rth height should be, and flew straight into a tree which was...

    Messing with drone blocks

    As the title suggests i have started messing with the DroneBlocks app a little. I have a Mavic Pro and a Tello. I will try to keep things Mavic Pro centered for this thread. Long story short I use my Mavic for filming mountain biking, backcountry snowboarding rock climbing and hiking. I use it...

    A question about controller differences - gps

    All: I'm just ramping up - have a mavic air coming and I see that it does not support the follow-me mode - so I'm going to use autopilot for that. I'm trying to understand why and think I've got it figured out. Can anyone confirm or deny that the mavic pro and spark have a gps in the remote...

    Go 4 vs. Litchi vs. Autopilot

    I've seen a few posts that mention Litchi and Autopilot. Could someone who uses either or both of the alternative applications please explain them, as well as the pros and cons of Litchi and Autopilot versus DJI's Go 4 software?

    Start Condition "Start Point Proximity"...

    I am unable to find any information on the AutoPilot waypoint setting "Start Condition" which can be set to either "None" or "Start Point Proximity", in which case a distance slider comes up. Does anyone know what this setting does, and when you would want to use it? Thanks! Will

    Litchi vs Autopilot

    Bought the Autopilot app yesterday since I wanted to try the waypoint missions but found it really hard to use actually. I managed to put the waypoints more or less where I wanted them but then I managed to add a trigger point and didnt know how to delete so had to start all over again. All in...

    Autopilot and firmware .800

    It seems that firmware .800 causes problems with 3rd party software. DJI released at the end of May SDK 4.1. If the 3rd party software is not aware of this, there might be some issues.

When I'm using Hangar's Autopilot (Auto flight logic) it is mostly for waypoint missions flown in joystick mode. the camera is also in Joystick mode. -So I have a predefined...

The most important issue: After the application crashes (and it does happen..), relaunching it or the DJI Go 4 does not gain control over the quad. I can see the image from the...

    Using Airspace in Autopilot - question on Network

    Hi - I'm a newbie to the Mavic. I had the Phantom 2 but, honestly, didn't use it much mainly because of the size and portability so now I hope to get into this a lot more. I understand Airspace (in the Autopilot app) but I am unclear on the Network connection option. I understand the...

    Hello, I am sharing my experience here to see if anybody else is able to reproduce this behavior. I am using the Autopilot app for my video hobby work. At the end of the session I am pressing the RTH button. But unlike DJI4 or Litchi apps where this works perfectly every time, this is not...
