I'm currently beta testing Autopilot with my DJI Spark. If you're interested in seeing how the automated flight modes look, you can check out my youtube channel...

I would love it for the Android..... Does it work for the older Iphones, maybe I could get one of those just to fly with.

Here is my waypoint video... completely automated flight with the focus on the running track.

I am using iPhone 8 Plus, there are some others on the autopilot forum who have been using ipad mini 4, iphone 6, iphoneSE with their Sparks

Will it work outside of RC connection. Like Litchi waypoints.

True.  Unfortunately Litchi doesn't do WayPoints with the Spark :-(  I discovered that AFTER purchasing it.  Still using it with the Mavic, though.

Warning By default Autopilot uses a Custom Flight Controller that executes on the iOS Device. This means that Lost Connection Mission Continuation (LCMC) is not enabled by default and if the aircraft loses connection during a Waypoint Mission, it will automatically initiate the Return-to-Home failsafe assuming it is enabled in DJI GO. You can enable LCMC but Autopilot will be forced to use the DJI flight controller, which means certain unique features will be disabled. These features will be disabled even while the aircraft is still connected because it is only possible to use one flight controller per engagement.

Is that the video directly from your Spark?  It seems really smooth as you rotate, I never get video that smooth.

I used the stabilisation fix (30%) and rolling shutter correction using iMovie.

Hello azsift, one of the reasons I like using Autopilot is because the automated flight modes capture video a lot smoother than I can do as a pilot. I would rather spend my time thinking about where I want the drone to fly, what to focus on then sit back and let the software and hardware do all the work. I also find that I can focus my attention on watching what the drone is doing in the sky rather than trying to watch what it is capturing on the screen....
