    How Curved Litchi Missions and DJI Fly Waypoint Missions Differ

    Most people who have used both Litchi and DJI Fly waypoint missions know that the flight paths differ. If the same set of waypoints are used in both applications, in DJI Fly, the flight path goes through the waypoints while in Litchi, they do not. Upon initial inspection, it appears that...

    Litchi Waypoints Camera Issue

    I’ve created a mission using the waypoints and one central POI so that the drone will start recording video from the first waypoint and continue all the way around. As soon as the drone gets to the first waypoint and begins recording, the camera tilts straight down and is not focusing on the...

    Partial Panorama Mission Creator

    Merry Christmas everyone. I have created another Litchi mission utility. This utility is used to create partial panorama missions. Google Earth Pro is used to define the focal point of the panorama. Controls are used to define the width and height of the partial panorama. I know that many of...

    DJI Mini 3 with DJI Screen RC and Litchi

    Hello all, It has been around 3 years since I lost my DJI Mini 1 in a swamp and I am just getting back into the hobby after purchasing a Mini 3 (non pro) with the DJI RC w/ screen. I understand that the DJI Fly app is built into the controller and does not require a smart phone to be...

    Another use for an SRT file

    As many of you probably know, if you enable “Video Captions” in the app, a “.SRT” file is generated along with the video file when capturing a movie. For example, with video captions enabled, you would see a pair of files on your SD card named something like this: DJI_0001.MP4 DJI_0001.SRT...

    Facade Mission Maker for Litchi

    I have created a new utility to create a vertical waypoint mission that can be used to capture the facade of a building. The input to this utility is a simple line drawn in Google Earth Pro. The details such as height and photo spacing are entered directly into the web application. The waypoint...

    Creating an Elliptical Waypoint Mission for Litchi

    I have created another utility for Litchi waypoint missions. This utility is used to create a mission in the shape of an ellipse. An ellipse may be defined by two foci and an eccentricity value. Google Earth Pro is used to provide the foci coordinates. Once converted to a Litchi waypoint...

    Augmented Reality: Light Painting with Litchi

    I have created a workflow and software utility that will allow one to combine the footage from a simulated light-painting Litchi mission with the actual footage from a “viewing” Litchi mission, augmenting reality with synthetic light painting. Perhaps it is best understood by watching this...

    DJI Please release the SDK for the Mavic 3 Pro

    Since 2017, I've been utilizing DJI drones. My initial drone was the Phantom 3 Advanced, and I've since acquired almost every drone they've released, including the Mavic 3 Cine and the Mavic 3 Pro Cine. When I obtained my Part 107 certification, the Mavic 2 Pro was the optimal choice for...

    Backup / Import Waypoints on Air 3

    Has anyone had success importing a waypoint mission into the Air 3 from a KMZ file? I'm attempting to create a workflow that leverages the Litchi Mission Hub and Litchi Utilities similar to the Mavic 3 converter but I have been unable to locate the Waypoint file folder.

    Ferris Wheel Mission Maker for Litchi

    I have created a new utility used to create a Litchi mission in the shape of a Ferris wheel. A “Ferris Wheel” mission is a path that causes the drone to fly in a vertical circle as if it is on a Ferris wheel. When used in conjunction with a point of interest (POI) and capturing video, it can...

    Light Painting with Litchi

    I have created a new Litchi utility and a set of instructions on how to do light painting with litchi. Light painting with a drone is a type of light painting where a drone equipped with LED lights is flown in the air to create patterns and designs. The drone’s movements and lights are captured...

    Litchi Waypoint Mission to Mavic 3 Waypoint Mission converter

    I have completed my “Litchi Waypoint Mission to Mavic 3 Waypoint Mission converter. With this web application, one can design a waypoint mission from the comfort of your office on a large monitor using Litchi’s Mission Hub then convert that mission to one that can be flown with a Mavic 3...

    Mavic 3 Waypoints to Litchi Converter

    I have created a web application that will convert a Mavic 3 waypoint kmz file into a Litchi csv waypoint file. This application was written based on examining only a single Mavic 3 waypoint file. As a result, it is almost a certainty that there are Mavic 3 waypoint parameters that I have not...

    Litchi POI - Can Height of POI be set?

    Hi, i'm just starting to play around with waypoints on Litchi and Google Earth. I have a test mission setup and am curious as to the POI behavior. For one of my future missions, i want to capture some large rock formations at the top of a cliff. I want the POI to either look straight out or...

    Virtual Litchi Mission not looking at POI

    Hello! I have been learning to use the downloaded version of the Litchi Mission Hub and VLM. I finally got it working in Google Earth Pro and I can start the mission which has two POI in the mission. While watching the mission in GEP, everything looks good but the camera never faces the POIs I...

    How to capture 360-degree panoramas at waypoints (with Litchi)

    I often see people asking this question: “Can I fly to a waypoint and then capture a 360-degree panorama?” Litchi may provide this feature at some point in the future but it is not available today. There is a “Panorama Preset” as a camera action, however, this preset captures only one row of...

    Are there any problems with running Litchi by itself with the Mini 2?

    When I had a Mavic Pro, I was running Litchi, but if I remember correctly, I had to have DJI's app running as well, because Litchi 'piggybacked' on it. I then got a Mini 2, and installed the Fly app. I crashed the drone and had to buy a replacement (just the drone, without the controller) and I...

    2 Zoom Loring Park, Minneapolis

    On a recent trip to Minneapolis I captured some footage at Loring Park and The Sculpture Garden. This was flown using a M2Z with Litchi. The footage was edited using DaVinci Resolve with some very light color correction.

    How to gain trust of Litchi Waypoints?

    I have bought Litchi a while ago, not using it often because there aren't many benefits compared to DJI Fly with Mavic Air 2, however I'm planning of using Litchi Waypoints for a project soon, I have tested the feature a couple of times, and I'm scared, for no reason. One of the reasons why I'm...
