I guess I am an idiot, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to download images from the RC-Pro to an iPhone or iPad.  I have Bluetooth enabled and can select all photos and initiate a transfer, but it fails each time.  I have firmware updated.  Anyone have any ideas?

You are not alone. Firmware for the RC Pro is clearly not done.

I had the same question earlier. I guess we're not there yet app-wise.
The only way I figured to share for now (unless you're talking skypixel):
* have wifi available (hotspot should do)
* copy content off the craft into RC
* launch Firefox or whatever app you have
* upload to whatever place you want

ALTERNATIVELY, if you have an iOS device that has Files on it, you can directly connect (powered) craft to that device using the appropriate cable. I just tried it with my M3C and iPad Pro, it showed my M3C internal drive as SSD. Then do whatever you want with them.

Thanks so much to both of you for your reply.  Glad to know I’m not crazy.  Spent about 4 hours this afternoon trying to troubleshoot. Will try the files app on iOS next.  Hopefully DJI resolves this soon.  Seems like this was released a couple months too soon.

Ya think? ;)

Pathetic that a $1200 “RC Pro” can’t do totally “non Pro” functions like save something to a microSD card or transfer files. Try do a screen recording or screenshot from the controller. Impossible to transfer those files.

I’m really frustrated with this, as this is part of my workflow. Everything I could deal with on launch, this is such a bummer.

Yep. This is one of the biggest clear examples that this drone and the expensive remote was not ready and is essentially running beta firmware. Clearly they knew it wasn’t ready yet released it anyway. DJI is clearly projecting a pretty impressive “F you” to its customers with a release of an incomplete beta product at a premium price.

For anyone who experienced this first-hand, I guess it would be the last time they buy the product immediately after launch.

Yep! I mean, not having a few features like "ActiveTrack" ready and being open and saying that it will be ready in January is one thing.  But literally releasing a "premium" RC and not having it ready and totally full of bugs (C1/C2 buttons reset after restart - customization doesn't stick) and *not* being able to do anything with a microSD, and AirSense totally sucking vs the regular controller - wow....just wow.

For the short period I had the RC pro before returning it, I had installed Lightroom on the remote and was able to upload to albums in LR from the remote if connected to wifi. Though I'm not convinced my installation of LR was secure since you can't access the Google Play store on the remote and have to hope you get an APK file that is safe.

Apparently iOS does not allow for bluetooth file transfer (aka AirDrop) from non-iOS devices for security reasons - I read this another forum thread somewhere about the previous smart controller (also operating Android).

Thanks for your reply.  The bluetooth transfer on IOS reasoning makes sense.  Wonder how they will address it with firmware.

They could at the very least allow you to use the microSD card in the RC Pro. It's laughable that they released it without literally being able to store photos/videos/screenshots/screenrecordings on it.

Same issue, I don't think it can connect to iPhone yet. I was able to send direct to a mac on the network though. Frustrating!

Very Simple.... You need an OTG adapter!!
I can transfer Photos or Videos direct to a USB thumbdrive from the RC Pro to any apple device..i..Pad or iPhone.
Amazon is your Friend, so do a search for USB C OTG adapter

Good Luck

I have no problem transferring from drone to controller. Or just take the micro sd out of the drone and direct transfer it to your computer.
