    I've been searching for the Litchi app for use on a PC and can't seem to find it. Seems strange. I have it on my Samsung Galaxy 5 and LG 8.3 tablet but would like to be able to work with on a PC.

    It seems strange that Windows and Apple laptops aren't supported. I believe the iPad is. I might be wrong.

    It's only available for Android. iPads are an Apple product ;)

    I understand that but thought the iPad was a bit different as far as the OS than laptops and desktops. Compatible but a bit different in certain aspects.

    it seems as if confused on what devices are what.

    Ipad, I phones, etc use IOS ---
    many versions and updates==IOS8, IOS9 etc. These are phone / touch tablet devices.

    Samsung , Motorola, sony, nvididia, etc. use ANDROID--
    again many version and customization's so some devices are better than others depending on version and hardware in tablet/phone.

    Windows PC, Apple Mac, use full Windows and Apple Ios for Mac--
    these are full pc's and or notebook/tablets. Typically not used for flying the Phantom but in P2's and P1's used to control and program NAZA via USB.

    With all the new windows 10 touch stuff hitting the market lately a window APP for flying would be nice!!!!


    Litchi are independent software writers that program what they know and are expert at, thus they cant always have everything in all formats.
    As in all APPS some are IOS only , some are Android only and some offer both. Not unusual at all.

    Yes, it would be. I have an HP Spectre 15" running Win 8. Its either a tablet or a laptop. If you fold the screen all the way round it shuts off the KB/mouse and becomes a full touch screen tablet. While heavy, it would make a killer monitor for the Phantom. A rig to hold the controller/computer via a strap or shoulder harness would be sweet!

    If only there were a PC app that would run the Phantom.

    I use an LG 8.3 tablet and find it's a decent size screen for FPV flying. I think carrying around a 15" would be overkill. I do take my 17" laptop with me but just to review the video I've taken. the biggest problem I have is glare on the screen of my tablet. I have an anti-glare cover and a shield and half the time still can't see on a sunny day.

    I use my Spectre at the rifle range with a WiFi camera to monitor targets when shooting long distances (600yd or more). I have had no issues seeing the screen in daylight on an open firing range. I can't imagine having a problem seeing it flying a drone.

    I have a DLSR camera with very heavy lenses. I have no issues carrying them using a strap. Same could be said for using a laptop using a strap system.

    Or difference in screen coatings, brightness, etc.
