Is there a place where we could lay out some of the features that we, as pilots, would like to see?  I see a lot of disuccsion on these boards about issues, but I don't hear much about features.  

I would love to be able to layout a flightplan even before I leave my home.  I heard that there is other software that does that but I am usually hesitant in using 3rd party stuff.

Yes, under the heading of General Support.

Or you could get on the chat program and discuss it with a DJI rep. Ha

Presumably /dev/null - the same place firmware problems go.

If you want to set a Waypoint Mission before you fly the drone, we have an app named GS Pro, you can learn more here: https://www.dji.com/ground-station-pro
We are also welcome any other feedbacks to our drone, so should you have any ideas, please let us know. We will help to forward it to our engineer.

Hi Thor

Can you please advise how to get that IOS app running on our P4P+, the plus has to be positive when beeing very expensive but seem only to include drawbacks!

I have the app and have been looking at it at my kitchen table.  I will try to fly with it later today.  Do you know if the flights I have will sync with DJI?  I don't see where I sync my flights up.  I asked the forum if they had any opinions on the software and haven't gotten any reply yet.  It makes me a little nervous that the DJI app isn't even rated (too few folks).  I do NOT want a flyaway or for it to go dead on me....

There was an "open vote" earlier last month on whether or not to create a new "firmware issues" category based off of someone's suggestion.  It seemed like most people were in favor of it, but I don't know if anything was done about it.
Also you can contact DJI via their technical support and they can guide you to the right email or contact source.

Flight records only generated when the drone connects to the DJI GO/DJI GO 4 app at present. They will not be generated when using DJI GS Pro. But flight data will reserve on the drone. So I suggest flying the drone in a place with good GPS signal and in the visual range if possible. Thanks for your kind understanding.

Can you tell the bosses that it would be a really cool feature to add?   (please?).

Thanks

DroneDeploy will do waypoints! I think it's designed for farmers and surveyors, but it's fairly user friendly.

How about telling your bosses that as an added "feature" we want the Smart RTH toggle back in the app. And as a bonus, how about fixing the horrible downlink after the firmware update 3 months ago.

While you're at it- how about some actual quality control? That would be an amazing feature!!!

May I know what's the model of your drone? There is always a toggle for RTH on the left of the app. Not sure if you meant that. And could you please tell more details about the downlink of your drone? I would love to help more. For the QC, our drone must be tested and make sure that is qualified for sale before selling. But I will also forward it to the related department to pay more attention to it. Thank you for your kindness.

Hi Thor,

I fly the p4pro+ which is a very good system with the built in screen that DJI have produced. I like may others with this model Phantom 4
find it so frustrating that DJI have such poor app inclusion for it, do you think that in the very near future DJI would been able to include
DJI Ground Station pro as part of the basic system as we are not able to add 3rd party apps.
You would think as GS pro is one DJI now products it would include it as part of the basic setup.

Can you let us know your thoughts or if you can pass this request on to the relevant team.

I work in IT, and I know sometimes the simple features really are more complex than the users think.  I also know that it's a balance between value and cost.  But for me, I think it would be a good useful feature.

Yeah.... that is something that OUGHT to be there... if you are flying DJI, using P4P+ (100% DJI) then you ought to be able to use the DJI flight apps, without any difficulty...

As a user, I would expect this.... I don't have the P4P+, but if I did, I would expect it.

It would be interesting to find out DJI thinking as to why have an RC with built in screen,
which costs £ 300 more than the normal RC and not include one if their own app's( GS pro)
that a professional pilot would find very useful. But put on some 3rd party app's like Facebook, WeChat,ect,ect that are no use at all to a professional pilot.

Is GS Pro available for the Crystal Sky ?

I've been using Litchi for missions.

I don't have the + so I was not aware of what it has, but if it HAS Facebook, then that tells you what THEY thought was important.... I can picture the meeting now.... "And after they fly, they will want to post their pics to Facebook for all their friends to see and share!"   Yeah, it means they didn't consider their audience very well.  
Sharing pics is fine... but if your drone is a tool, then it's for work and needs to have those industrial features, not just chat rooms and social media....

After looking at a few other post, as the very good bright Crystal Sky divine run on android,
unfortunately  like the p4p+ screen it will Not so its not available.
I am not understanding DJI business plan in making dives and equipment to a high standard
but lets not let any pilots use it to its true potential, they are missing out and will in the end loss
pilots to other platforms.

I agree, I have been thinking about retiring my P3P for a new P4P, I will be doing some serious looking around at other options for my choice of a new drone to replace her. I will however fly my Mavic until the props are nothing but residual nubs and continue using the P3P for now.

No, as you can see the introduction of this app, this is an iOS app, can not be applied to an Android device, and the built-in screen RC owns Android system, so it is not available at the moment. Thanks for your kind understanding.

Thor- there is no SMART RTH toggle for the P4Pro in the battery menu now.  Ever since the last firmware.

Thanks for illustration. Yes, this option is canceled but this function is allowed by default. If you don't want the drone RTH when it prompts, you can cancel it when the message pops up.

Yes, Litchi allows Waypoint Missions, very user friendly and stable, web based mission setup at Litchi Mission Hub, many pilots are using it, it also does 360° panoramic stills. If your drone is new and still under warranty or have DJI Care Refresh they may give you an issue should something go wrong during a flight as they always say 3rd Party Apps will void warranty.

Yeah.... I understand... I wish I could get on as a user who gets asked their opinions about stuff... about features I use, those I don't and what I would like to see.  I would REALLY like that.

That would be nice indeed.
In the Spark forum there is a thread started by a DJI moderator about what you would want to add to Spark, so you might think DJI will do something with it.
I am not sure however, as they won't tell about what they are working on.
