Autopilot for iOS is out in the App Store.
I'm not familiar with this. Any reviews? If it was free I'd go ahead and download it. For $20 I'd like to have some idea what I'm paying for.
Supports the P3 now.... As an iOS user, this is great!
I'm not falling for this again. Hahahahah! Joking I see it now. Thanks.
Autopilot - Autoflight Logic
The apps is $20 and include only follow, you only have 5 flights for Orbit, Target, Zip Line, Mimic and than add $4,99 for each one, too bad???????
Well I guess we have to support the developers somehow. It's a great app and can't wait till they have waypoints.
My thoughts exactly.
Huh? Forget that!
Gladly purchased the app and all the add ons.
Well worth it !!
How much total?
Agreed, I'd way rather have a $1.25 app made by some kid in his basement than Autopilot to control my $1300 toy!!!
Sarcasm now off…..
That's the odd part...I purchased the app ($21.36 with tax) and then added the in-app flight modes. Haven't seen a charge for them. Maybe they will trigger once I use my 5 free missions. Who knows. I did not get the Follow Me as I will not be using that function.
So, I think the total should be $35 or $40.
Follow me is built in and "free"
I tried a few times yesterday and today... and the bird started going places that I never would have imagined... I need to read much more on how it works... keeping the finger on the toggle at all times.
Autopilot is fantastic! Pair it with a barometer driven device (iPhone 6+) and altitude is incredibly stable. "Focus" mode is excellent. It takes a wee while to get your head around the variety of options, but it's well worth it. The app has incredible depth and infinite flexibility. DJI GO still has its place for sure but this app is on a different level.
You don't say what you tried, but if follow me and it was moving in circles then you may not have been moving fast enough for it to determine the direction you were traveling in or your iOS devices GPS was a bit weak. You need to be moving at over 3mph from memory.
The app sucks bad, Video is horrible, the modes work really bad.
Will probably not buy it. Examining their literature, and tutorials, their Target is almost a Waypoint, but not preprogrammable, much like DJI Go. You have to fly it and then select your waypoint with your altitude and speed and direction.
I don't know if there is any limitation regarding radius distance from Home like DJI Go (1640'). I used both DJI and Litchi today, While in the same area, Litchi did a great job on my P3P preprogrammed (5) 1000 yard legs. I have more tests to do tomorrow. The Litchi software suggests you can move your Homepoint by holding down the H while airborne, but not how you move it. Advice?
you can select a new homepoint by long pressing anywhere on the map - not by holding down H... note, this only works once you are airborne and in "F" mode
With regards to autopilot Target Mode - you do not need to fly to it.. you can move your "Target" anywhere on the map while the bird is on the ground. you can also set altitude and speed without flying.
