Mini 3 Pro with Pix4D Capture Pro - Which Controller is best?

Hi there,

I have been using Pix4D Capture and Capture Pro with DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2 and Parrot Anafi for some time. I have recently upgraded and got some new kit - Mini 3 Pro and Mavic 3E and I am wanting to transfer my workflow to these drones.

I have the DJI RC Pro Enterprise with the Mavic and both the DJI RC and RC N1 with the Mini 3 Pro. I know that the DJI RC will not accept App installation but I also have a Tripltek Pro 8 Android tablet that will work with the RC N1.

Will the Capture Pro App work okay with the RC N1 and Mini 3 Pro or do I need to use the RC Pro Enterprise for both drones?

I have connected the Mini 3 Pro to the RC N1 with Capture Pro and it all seems fine, apart from I get a message saying all permissions have not been granted to the SDK - as far as I can see there are no permissions denied so I was wondering if this warning is because of the limitation of the RC N1?

Also, would I be better to install Capture Pro directly on the RC Pro Enterprise or will it work just as well with the Tripltek Pro 8 connected to it and running the App from there?

I plan to use the Mini 3 Pro only in very congested areas where overflight and separation rules can not be attained with the M3E.

Thank you for your consideration!

Hi @survey6,

I’m happy to hear that you want to transition from PIX4Dcapture to PIX4Dcapture Pro.

DJI Mini 3 Pro (*)
To use PIX4Dcapture Pro with this drone, you need to use a combination of the DJI N1 + an Android device. You can find the APK file here.

Is this message about permission not being granted preventing you from flying the drone? Can you eventually share a screenshot with me?

Mavic 3E
To use PIX4Dcapture Pro with this drone, you need to use the default DJI RC Pro Enterprise controller. You can find the APK file here.

(*) Please also note that the DJI Mini 3 and DJI Mini 3 Pro only support Grid Mission (Generic) inside the PIX4Dcapture Pro app. These drones don’t support the Terrain Awareness feature either.

Thank you @Daniele_Lecci - this is the answer I was hoping for. I have been using Capture Pro with my existing drones and it has worked well.

I will get a screenshot / photograph of the warning message when it appears, I may try removing and re-installing first to double check I haven’t missed anything previously.

I am aware of the limitations of the Mini 3 Pro - the missions I would fly using it are all simple grid Ortho / models so this is not an issue for my use case.

Hi @survey6,

I’m glad to hear that you are happy with the answer.
Yes, please share a screenshot once you have it.
