So my S9 note took a dive and I ended up with a new S21 Ultra. The Dji fly app downloaded without issue. Try flying the MM and everything seems fine, except there is no camera view, just a black screen with the attitude panel, battery, satellites, etc. It's like flying blind not being able to see what the camera is viewing. I tried taking pictures and it does and will save to SD card, but while flying you cant tell what the camera is looking at. I checked the chipset on the phone, it's LAHAINA android 11. supposedly this is Samsungs new name for the Snapdragon processor. Any ideas? Everything else works fine.

Well I tried to reinstall the DJI Fly App from Google playstore and could not find it. Figured this might mean that the phone is incompatible. I went to the DJI website and was able to find it there. I downloaded the latest version (it took awhile) and it seems the issue has been resolved. I checked my phones chipset (LAHAINA android 11) and it appears that this is a different name for Snapdragon

I have a Galaxy A51 5G running Android 11 and it will not connect. It is also not listed as a compatible device. My old Galaxy S8 works just fine. You don't need a data connection so going to an older device, assuming it's in good working order, should be fine.

I upgraded my phone from an S10 to the S21 (not the ultra) .. Everything swapped over and works fine :)
