    So here is my first question: how do I control the exposure? I can't find any buttons doing that in Litchi app.

    on iOS there are no camera settings at this time, hopefully we'll find some time to add them down the line but in the meantime you have to use DJI Go (including exposure settings).

    The app is optimized for tablets as phones weren't a priority for us before, so what you see is mostly a scaled down version, but we'll try to make it look prettier as I assume most P3S users use phones.

    I think if I had a wishlist for your app (which is pretty capable as is) would be the ability to draw a polygon around the area of interest and have it automatically plot the lines based on overlap, height, etc for photogrammetric survey use.

    actually, I use an iPad Mini 4, but you might be right, maybe most standard users do use phones, but there are many of us using tablets.

    That's odd considering Litchi supports VR devices. Never seen a VR device that uses a tablet, only phones/phablets of 6" or less.

    My comment refers to the iOS version of Litchi, the Android version is different as it first started with P2V+ support which worked well with phones so the Android version is optimized for both phones and tablets. That is not to say the iOS app doesn't work on phones - it does - but the UI could use some optimizations.

    We will be sending invites in batches, shouldn't be too long before you receive one as long as the beta is not full.

    This is great news! I've signed up as a tester and purchased the app. Will watch for the update that adds P3S support.

    Did DJI already update their SDK to include the Standard and 4K?

    I signed up for beta YESTERDAY, right after you posted the need for beta testers, and I was notified it was full, will I be invited?

    So here's practical question: if signal lost and bird on a mission — RTH or continue to flying?
    P.S. How to send a feedback for you, Kaehn?

    At this time no, it may be possible though to add it, we haven't yet looked into it.

    please send feedback to vctech@flylitchi.com
    If signal is lost, the aircraft will continue the mission as if nothing happened.

    So this seems to work with the Phantom 3 standard, but the signal meters are showing N/A but everything else seems to work and be controllable. Not sure I wanna take off without those working... lol
