Leave the selector switch in the RC position. The WiFi position is only for connecting directly to your cellphone or tablet via WiFi to use as a controller.after binding the controller to the MPP, do I leave the selector switch in the RC position or return it to the WIFI position
If you are in RC mode and use the djigo4 app you can see everything. I can’t imagine flying in WiFi with a Mavic. Occusync is much stronger and range is amazing with the OTG cable connection to a phone or USB to a tablet.If you want to take photos and/or video, you should be in WIFI mode. If your interest is purely flying, the RC mode is best. I guess you can still take photos and/or video but you will be unable to see exactly what you are taking photos/video of. I prefer to fly in WIFI mode even though my range is less. Some of the photos/video are simply great.
Paul, thank you for the information. I have always used WIFI, fortunately without issue. I am going to give Occusync a serious look. Currently using IOS 9.7 tablet. Tried my Android phone yesterday and all was fine but I don't totally trust Android given previous feedback from users that had problems using it. I am taking photos in raw with video at 4k/24. Perhaps Occusync will provide even better results. I will let you know. Thanks again for the iinformation!If you are in RC mode and use the djigo4 app you can see everything.

I also would not fly the Mavic without the app. Just too much to go wrong.
If you are flying in WiFi with the app not RC you are still only getting a cached image not the full video resolution or jpg for stills
Occusync also is much better for your video signal also while flying.
I am currently using the 9.7 IOS with a holder. I control only with the DJI remote, although, of course, adjust settings via djigo4 and the IOS. I also connect with a lightening cable using the USB port. To clarify , Ocusync is built into the Mavic Pro Platinum and is accessed when in RC mode????Actually, the Video/stills won't have benefit from the Occusync, as all of that is being captured on your micro SD card on the Mavic. Where you will benefit, is range, and better video transmission and much more reliable connection between you and the drone. As you get further out, you will start to see breakup of the video transmission especially if you happen to drop out of LOS. Occusync really is an excellent platform.
If you are using an iPad, (I use an iPad pro latest version 10.5 or 9.75, can't remember the Apple spec. It will work best if you use the Standard USB port on the bottom of your controller. Use a USB to lightening cable. The djigo4 app is very stable on the apple platform, but I believe it's also stable on the Android side. The S8 and S9 phones have amazing outdoor displays, at least 1000 nits. The iPhone X is 500, pretty worthless IMO. The iPad Pro is brighter IMO than iPhone x outdoors.
If you go with a tablet, you may want to look at one of the many tablet holders that will plug into the controllers folding arms. The the iPad mini will fit in the controller, but larger iPad, need an extra holder. Here is a link to just one example out on Amazon:
Correct. Occusync is how the RC communicates with the Mavic. WiFi is used when you do not use the RC. The RC communicates with your phone/tablet via USB to run Go 4 so you can have the camera view and other Go 4 features.To clarify , Occusync is built into the Mavic Pro Platinum and is accessed when in RC mode????
And, it will work this way even in remote areas, away from cities?Correct. Occusync is how the RC communicates with the Mavic. WiFi is used when you do not use the RC. The RC communicates with your phone/tablet via USB to run Go 4 so you can have the camera view and other Go 4 features.
