Hello. I just bought a Mavic Pro during the Amazon prime sale. I had been debating between the Mavic Pro and a Phantom 4. The Mavic won based on price and size along with the fact that it will do everything I want it to do. I am strictly using for fun and the only drone experience I have had was with an $89 toy. I do have a couple of questions. I have one question about compatibility of phone with the DJI Go app. I have a Motorola Droid Turbo phone running Android version 6.0.1. Will it work? Second question concerns the FAA license. I have seen some recent videos that say it is no longer required. Is that true? I'm sure I'll have more questions in the future and thanks in advance for any help.

It's not one of the recommended or commonly used phones, but you can try it to see how DJI GO runs on it. If the live video in DJI GO lags, then try the tips in this article.

Second question concerns the FAA license. I have seen some recent videos that say it is no longer required. Is that true?
The registration rule was reinstated in December 2017 (see more details here). It's required by H.R.2810, Section 1092 (d).

You can register with the FAA here. If you're only flying as a hobbyist, register under "Section 336".
