Forgive me if this has been discussed, but can I get an opinion of which DJI Go 4 version people are using on their iPad Mini 4's and how it's working for you? Has anyone updated their Mini to the latest version and have it work flawlessly?

If there is another thread dealing with this question, please feel free to direct me to it.

Thanks!

Rob

I've updated to the latest and it's been a nightmare with the pixelated video, lagging video, and other quirks. The last time I flew, my video settings adjusted to astronomical numbers. I didn't realize it until off the ground. Here is a link to a video from the last flight. Note the telemetry vs the video feed. A rep from DJI on another forum (alleged rep anyway) said the issue was my device being too hot and the app works flawlessly on the mini4.

Thats exactly why I started this thread. Some people are worried about updating their app for this exact reason.

Has anyone rolled back DJI Go for IOS to a prior version?

I have an iPhone X, which has an absurdly powerful processor for the size, and the DJI edit app still lags. Which goes to show how big of a piece of garbage the software is.

Using a Mini 4, latest everything, no problems, on my one year old MP.
I was hoping that someone was using current stuff on a mini 4
My old iPad is showing signing of passing on so I bought a mini 4 128 just for the pro . I was hoping that the pair would play well together. My iPhone works fine but I like a bigger screen that the iPads give . I was shocked that when I bought the pro that it worked good with a 4 year old iPad that is maxed out in storage .

My iPad mini 4 had been working fine until the heatwave here in the UK. The iPad gets scarily hot in the mid day sun while flying and the picture from the drone breaks up and stutters. The video saved to the sd card is fine. All goes back to normal when everything has cooled down. I should have tried Litchi but wasn’t planning on a waypoint flight. Maybe next time I’ll fly both to compare.
For reference iPad mini 4 running iOS 11.4.1, DJI Go4.0.8.

You can find which version of the app you are using from the app. General settings, scroll to the bottom, click on About.
The App Store is currently handing out 4.2.22 and it’s a 422.1MB download.
