Has anybody managed to install Litchi on a crystal sky unit yet? I saw someone posting in another forum that you could install it via the amazon app..

Tried using the latest version of Litichi, you will need to buy it again via your amazon account, it's 20 usd.

When running it on the Crystalsky 5.5 it made it super hot (48c)  in a few minutes , not wanting to burn out the screen I shut it down.

The current version of DJI Go4 on the CS definitely runs cooler, so I will probably stick to that.

Does it run with go4 installed?
On my other android devices, the Litchi instructions say to force stop the DJI app.
I'm also wodering how much of a resource hog the Amazon app is.

Hmmm I think i will wait for more reports.

It does run with DJI Go 4 installed on the CS but obviously not running.
The sideloaded version of Litchi 4.0.2 (patched) in my mind runs better than the latest Amazon enabled version.

The amazon version requires you to buy another Litchi license even though you might have already paid for it in the apple or google app stores.

The Amazon-Litchi on CS is very laggy and sometimes not responding, cause Crystalsky 7.85hb is running very hot.
Parts of the screen, squares don't fill and stay white.., missions take a while for loading and give warnings so its not safe to start..
In 'follow' or 'Track' its very difficult to give in the distance numbers, i needed some luck.., anyway for me its not useful and pity of the money!
Sometimes  on the screen "Litchi isn't responding, do you want to close it??"
Litchi support suggests to reduce the "Preview Quality" to 4Mbps in the Litchi settings,.. that's for the next attempt.

Dji apps are all force stopped before opening Litchi!

Double checked all instructions and Litchi suggestions, but test was again not a succes, "review Quality" is standard set to 4 Mbps in Litchi app, Crystalsky touchscreen doesn't react properly!
Send problem again to their support.

Thanks for the update. It’s unusable for me at this moment.

This solution from Litchi support made the app back usable on my Crystalsky 7.85hd and Phantom4.I made several testflights using Litch FPV, Waypoint missions, Pano, and Follow, they all reacted perfect in the air and on the touchscreen.

Litchi support:
Could you please try to change the map engine (from Here maps to Google maps) to see if that fixes your issues?
In order for Google maps to work, you first need to install these 3 apks:
- Google Play Services: https://apkfree.com/download/goo ... .7.44-032-173432861
- Google Play Info: https://apkpure.com/play-service ... wnload?from=details
- Google Play Store: https://apkpure.com/google-play- ... wnload/80837500-APK

Then in Litchi’s settings, change the “Map Engine” setting to “Google Maps”, the app will then restart.
If you have error popups as a result of installing the above APKs, try to force close “Google Play Services” in Crystalsky’s Settings – Apps section.

I waited to order my CS until I found out that the Litchi app would be available. When that happened, I ordered one of the 7.85"UB units to use with my P3A/P. I used it for three days before the display  failed. All of the Litchi functions seemed to work fine. After getting the unit back from repair, all the functions worked fine but for the voice prompts. Litchi Lucy sounds more like Litchi Larry.   The voice prompts sound fine on my Nvidia Shield.  So I don't know what they did to that thing but I am beginning to wonder!!!!

I got a response from Litchi regarding this issue. They claim the CS uses an outdated text-to-speech app and that causes the problem. I could care less as everything else seems to be fine

Had litchi installeren and working. Since the update of the I2 a few weeks ago I keep getting "disconnected" message. I can't seem to connect the drone and the the app. So far the app is useless. Pretty disappointed.,

Use "open gapps", to install google sevices/playstore etc. Then do restore so google is installed first. After that Litchi runs as it should.

Not quite sure why one would have to pay a second registration fee for the same application which was available on the Google Play store. I actually put an email out to Litchi to see what they say? I was told that my license was good for all devices? Lets see what happens.

I’ve loaded and tried Litchi on both my CS monitors a while back and always had issues during a flight. Disconnects or severe video lag and can’t remember the other issues at this point. Love Litchi on my iPad, not so much on Crystalsky.
