I had a bit of an issue when I first tried to launch the app. My RC was saying DISCONNECTED. I'm running various checks through my mind, preparing to go home disappointed because nothing works, when I see my cord between the iPad and the RC dangling, not connected. Oops. After that, I'm happy to report that the Litchi app for iOS worked flawlessly on my first flight using it. I was hesitant to let the app fly the bird without my controlling it, and my fingers on the switch to take control back, but it worked great! I hope Litchi continues to develop the app, as it really is nice not to have to fly and also photograph at the same time.
