    Does this update include onboard support for  the Mavic Air2? 

    Or do I have to break out the Phantom 3 Pro?

    Thanks for the great app!

     

    Supported drones include Phantoms, Mavic pros, etc. We have not magically found a way to upload waypoints to drones that do not support this feature in the DJI SDK (Mavic Minis, Mavic Air 2s, etc).

    Like I already said:

    The s on Minis and 2s just mean plural, not the Mavic Air 2S (corrected that in the OP).

    Litchi:

    How?

    Yes, it supports any drone that the DJI SDK allows onboard waypoint uploads.

    Litchi: How?

    I believe they implemented "waypoint mode" with virtual sticks, but you will have to ask them to be sure.

    Will the onboard waypoints make the movement smoother?

    Possibly, but virtual stick waypoints are already smooth on the drones that support onboard compatibility. It's the Mavic Minis of the world (read: no ocusync) that struggle sometimes.

    Like I said, if you have questions about Litchi, you should ask Litchi support.

    Hi again Jim,

    Thanks for that. One other question. I have both a hobbyist account, and a mapping account. Is there a way I can use the terrain follow function I have access to in the hobbyist account, with the DJI waypoint functionality in the mapping account?

    I want to map a landslide on Friday and having both functions would be fantastic.

    Thank you,

    Ben

    You have to be on the Starter plan or higher to get terrain follow.

    But I have access to it on my hobbyist account already? I just do not have the DJI waypoint functionality for that account.

    If you have the legacy hobbyist plan, then yes, you have terrain follow. You can see the full list of your features here.

    I just do not have the DJI waypoint functionality for that account.

    Correct, we cannot and do not always retro-actively add new features to legacy plans as new features often require a significant amount of resources to develop and users need to upgrade to newer plans to get access. Adding all new features to legacy plans is not a sustainable business model.

    I assume the connection between DJI waypoint sets must be at a location within radio signal?

    Each set of waypoints does need to be uploaded after the previous waypoints finish, so you do need to have a connection between components.

    Thanks to everyone who tested this feature - it is now released with 3.0.0. Enjoy!
