    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.

    Good to hear that. I was asking for user feedback on the iOS versions of the App yesterday.

    What iOS device did you run Litchi on out of interest?

    It wants you to take off to 5 m ,then move the toggle switch under the gimbal tilt wheel to f mode before the mission will start. The Autopilot app will launch without arming the motors.

    I'm using iPad 4wifi only.

    tobeallque, you have to launch the bird, then run the app. I switched to f mode before launching like I always do. I took it up to about 20 ft, then ran the mission.

    Just used the app on my IPhone 6 and love it!!!! Man, this app is great!!!

    With that said, where do we go to recover the video??? I recorded my flight but can't locate the video.
