Not even remotely similar to what I have on my phone and tablet. For anyone using Xperia the way to access screen recording is to press and hold power button and then select “Take screenshot“ (or “Record screen“ to record video).

Thanks for sharing your experience with us, Corvus. Hope this helps more users who have the same mobiles.

I consider the video caching in the go 4 app as  a video backup to aid in possible fly away

the question is which method takes more iOS CPU and battery power... caching vs screen recording

any ideas?

the screen capture is great as it captures the 'interface' with all its warnings and indications which is much quicker and cleaner to get a quick playback of the flight vs downloading the telemetry and uploading to a site that can read it.

would be great is dji assistant would provide detailed flight analysis without having to jump through hoops.. unless I am missing a feature somewhere

Hi DeuceDriv3r. Sorry if this post confused you. This is related to the ongoing promotion of DJI Care Refresh and DJI Care Refresh +. An instruction how customers can record the screen of their mobile device for the video verification they need to submit. About your concern, we are always relying on the Flight Records/Data not just on videos to know the cause of every incident. Hope it clarifies the confusion

oh there was no confusion ....

its a valid question..

the only reason I would want the video recorded to my iPhone would be to use it to help locate said drone if it didn't return with the CF card

so I can either cache just the video using the DJI go 4 app... and that uses processing power and likely processing threads that are shared with actually running the app..

or i can record the entire telemetry screen with all that data... I am sure screen capture is a lower priority thread in iOS for processor time so perhaps not glitching DJI GO4 as much...

would be an interesting study to see which performs better...

Hi IM35461, since CrystalSky doesn't have any application like Play Store where you can download a third party app, you may need to record the screen manually using a different device. That's what you can do if you're concerned about submitting the video verification for the DJI Care Refresh and DJI Care Refresh + promotion. If not, you may rely on reply #14 for clarification. Thanks for your support as well!

Thanks for confirming, DeuceDriv3r. If recording the telemetry is the concern, the DJI Go 4 records that and save it under your app's Flight Records.It records not just the telemetry but also other status of the unit while in flight, including the stick commands. You may check this link for the Flight Record info: https://dl.djicdn.com/downloads/ ... +Tutorials+V1.0.pdf

yes.. I know that as well

question still stands to any iOS developer that has dev tools to confirm

processor overhead

interrupts

memory usage

and perhaps wait states of DJI GO 4

between letting DJI GO 4 cache video vs using iOS built in screen capture software...

again... not being a 12yo girl I generally don't have a need for social media posts thus do nothing with the cached video other than delete it once the drone is down since I have no need for it..

having the video with telemetry on it would at least be a useful tool to review a flight etc..

Hi, not after making a claim but just helping tracking down issues e.g. in this situation where CrystalSky thought my craft was over 400' away and 84' high. Well that is where it was when it started to play up reporting full signals etc and even the image updating sometimes...





It is difficult to get good results trying to take pictures of the screen

yep.. and that is why I use the full quality video and pictures off the SD card and not the pulsating, pixilated, dropout jerky video of the DJI GO 4 cache...

just saying...

I try some Screen Recorders on my CrystalSky and after it, horrible lagging of video and I dont suggest to do this by 3rd party apps.

Would be nice if DJI was to release a nice little app optimized for this job, that wouldn't consume a lot of resourses during flight. Anyway, thanks for the info.

Since DJI is already able to record the video from the screen, all that would be need is to capture the telemetry and map overlays, even if in a separate file. We could combine them in the editor later. That should reduce the amount of overhead is doing a complete screen recording.

I am new to the Crystalsky (5.5") so haven't found a way to record the screens for later reviews like I used to on my Android phone and haven't found a way to load the screen recorder app I used there (DU Record).
