    Great news. I guess the silver lining of waiting so long for the Mavic to be delivered is that it gives time for everything else to get released. So, though it's a long wait, I'm only waiting for one thing, not back-to-back things to wait for.

    While I'm excited to see that, I'm gonna wait for everyone to confirm that DJI's own stuff is completely solid before I trust my Mavic to a third-party app. Other than the disconnect on my second flight, I've had no problems, but the other Mavic owner at work reported he'd hit the spinning/loss of control a couple of times. Gulp.

    Question, if DJI GO has an important update, do you have to wait until Litchi updates before you can use it again?

    Works fine, except no battery stats for me. Can't fly very long without knowing how much battery % is

    EDIT, on 3rd battery I finally got battery stats, don't know what problem was

    Can someone please explain why I would want Litchi for the Mavic Pro?

    Other than offline waypoint flight plans, what else is the appeal?

    Does it mean I will no longer, or rarely use the DJI app, or does this interact with and require the DJI Go app?

    You can't run both together (and will run into issues if you have both open at the same time).
    Have a look on the vendors website and you can decide whether the features will be of use to you.
    The waypoint feature is worth the cost alone. You can also program 'actions' at each waypoint as well as adjustable curved flight paths or straight line flights.
    It is far more customisable over what DJI Go gives you - however, only you can decide if you have use for it or any of the other third party apps.

    I wonder if it will re-focus before each shot when doing a pano.

    1. You can record whats on your device screen (video & flight data) with sound
    2. Set to start recording video whenever you take off from homepoint so you don't forget to start video.
    3. Fly FPV with cheap VR goggles

    Along with programming waypoint missions, these are my favorite features.

    The biggest thing for me is auto flights.

    I agree, its a great course. I have taken all 3 of the online Phantom Filmschool courses offered by Laurence. I'm sure he will be adding some content specifically for the Mavic at some point.

    This is good information. Thank you
    all. I will strongly consider Litchi after I receive my Mavic Pro.

    And the ability to use the Litchi mission hub on my computer to create waypoint missions before I even get on location.

    Mission Hub - Litchi

    For example: Earlier this year I went to Hawaii (Oahu) North Shore. I created several missions before I even left home, and after I arrived in Hawaii, I downloaded them to my Litchi app and executed them autonomously.

    I've been flying with Litchi all day and it has been wonderful.
    There was one time I didn't know how to RTH after interrupting a mission but then I remembered that button on the RC, duh!

    If you are on the fence on whether or not to get Litchi my advice would be get Litchi! It's a great app and you'll give up on Go right away, SO many more goodies in Litchi and it's only a few bucks. It's worth it.

    @litchi I have a HUGE favor to ask for you next update.

    Please add PORTRAIT MODE!

    Us old guys need our iPads.
    Thank you
