ANY SOLUTION ON THE PIX4D APP? CAN´T CONNECT MY MAVIC 2 TO THE APP

Ryan, I just tried to download litchi from google play store but I was not able to download the the app through an APK downloader because it’s a paid app - how did you install it? would be great to know - thanks a lot

The app must be installed using either the Google Play store or the Amazon App store. The Amazon App store is easier to install on the SC. There are several video tutorials out there on how to install both of them.

Law enforcement, public safety agencies and private business are rapidly accepting the Smart Controller. Not only for the brighter screen but also the cold and hot weather enhanced operations (as compared to a tablet) and the HDMI out. Mapping as a large part of the work public safety is doing. The current Mavic Enterprise 2 is not ideal as it has a zoom camera and lower resolution (12 mp) but it uses the pilot app on the Smart Controller with built in “Mission Flight” were you can do nice mapping flights.
The Mavic Pro 2 (Non Enterprise version) has the camera capability needed for quality forensic mapping but when using the DJI Smart Controller there is no mapping function (Pilot all will not work) and mapping apps for the smart controller are not working. The solution seems so simple and there is such a great need. DJI recently released the SDK for the smart controller - why is Pix4D not capitalizing on developing a flight app for the Smart Controller. DJI does not allow the Pilot App to run on the Smart Controller with non Enterprise aircraft such as the Mavic 2 Pro. Amazing to me the lack of interest from two successful companies that should be working together to get this sorted out.
We need a mapping option with the Smart Controller for the Mavic Pro 2.

Hello Christopher,

I really thank you for the detailed feedback about the DJI Smart controller. It has been reported to the Product Owner and developers team so that they consider to implement a support for it in the future.

It seems hard to believe that I started this thread on January 17th this year and there has been no solution - from both sides.

I am a pilot for a public safety agency in California, and we use the Mavic 2 Enterprise and smart controller for the reasons listed above. We are eager to get involve with Pix4D React, but we are at this impasse…

My research group has purchased a Smart Controller for its cold temperature rating for flying in the Canadian Arctic. We are using the UgCS flight planning software. I can get the UgCS for DJI app loaded on the Smart Controller, and it shows a connection with the UgCS software on the laptop. But it will not connect to the Mavic 2 Pro. Same issue as above. UgCS tech support indicated to me on Dec 4th 2019 that ‘their development team has decided to work on smart controllers. However, they cannot tell me even an approximate timeline on how long it will take to fix this issue’.

I am now in the process of trying to find a ‘smart-phone’ that has excellent battery life and good cold temperature ratings/specifications. But I am having little luck in this department. Does anyone have a suggestion for a phone that will keep operating -10C temperatures?

I have successfully installed Pix4D capture and Ctrl+DJI on the smart controller on jan 14 2020. The link light was green the “connected” notification appeared. Next step, to try it outside!

Any news? Did it worked?

Im waiting for good weather to go outside (living in canada in january = cold and Snowy)

brrrrr it must be really cold, understandable, we will wait for it, hope it is good news.

Tks

Good news! It worked flawlessly. I managed to fly my first mission with the smart controller and pix4d capture! Next step…to upload pictures and to create a mosaic.
