    So, I'm sure this is a common question, but is it a better idea to buy litchi or autopilot?

    I've never used autopilot. I've heard many great things about Litchi so ended up going with that. Very happy with it so far.

    Autopilot is a lot more complex app and due to the custom flight controller Autopilot uses it needs to remain connected to the drone.

    I have both

    Both apps are very different. You should compare their features and purchase the app that will best fit your needs.

    Does anyone know if you can manually control the camera during a mission with litchi?

    I know can pre program it for when it's out of range. But haven't gone too far in depth with it.

    Litchi is very similar to the DJI GO app, but tacks on a whole bunch of features and polish that the DJI app lacks. If that's what you're looking for, go with Litchi.
