    Is there a desktop version of Dji go software? Or an alternative to it that can be run on a desktop or laptop?

    Possibly. You can download an Android emulator, and if the Go app won't download/install from the play store, you can find the app on other sites (like 1Mobile.com) and try side loading it.

    Here's an article on Android emulators: How to Run Android on Your PC: The Best Android Emulators

    While technically correct, without a connection to the bird he would essentially have a large format welcome screen. I think he meant a stand alone PC version of the app, for what I am not sure.

    Laptop's have Wi-Fi capability. Once he powers the drone on, it'll be listed in his available Wi-Fi options on the laptop. He could connect that way, if he can get the app to install in the emulator.

    He has a Standard, not Adv/Pro.

    Why wouldn't he be able to connect the laptop running an emulator to the RC with a USB cable just like you would a tablet?

    I can't think of a situation where I personally would want to use my laptop, but I'm curious to know if it would work. Might be nice to use for Waypoint Missions.

    I didnt see that he was using a standard. If someone with a P3P or P3A gets this to work with an emulator let me know. I might try it out.

    Interesting theory. Not that I'd try it but interesting concept.

    Building it would be easier than getting my wife to carry a PC out to the soccer field. (Not to mention the 200-yard extension cord!) :)

    I'm thinking on a laptop. More for a waypoint flight or somewhere where you could set the laptop on the tailgating of your truck or vehicle and be stationary while you fly the bird or let it run a mission. Still not practical for regular use...it would just be interesting to see if it can be done...Nice big screen too. A touch screen laptop would be nice.
