I just received my Mavic Mini and have successfully downloaded the DJI Fly App onto my Iphone 6S

I have many DJI drones and fly most of them on my Ipad Mini 4. I went to download the app onto my Ipad Mini 4 and the app does not seem to be available for the Ipad Mini

What is going on DJI.

Try selecting one of the other DJI apps, such as DJI GO 4, and then press on the developer name to get to DJI's app list. You should see it in there. You could also try clicking on this link https://apps.apple.com/ca/app/dji-fly/id1479649251 on the ipad and it should open it in the App Store.

Many thanks for that I seem to have found it by doing as you said clicking on another DJI app and then looking for other apps and I found it with the icon for downloading from the cloud. I think this might have happened because I had previously downloaded it to my Phone. It is still downloading so I will see if it works

Many thanks for your Help

I have now downloaded the App to my Ipad Mini but it does not fit the screen properly. Of course an iPhone screen and the Ipad Mini screen are different aspect Ratios which could be the problem.

Either way it would be nice if DJI updated the app to properly fit the Ipad Mini as so many people use this

Ipad Mini 4 and DJI Fly App

I have just got my Mavic Mini Fly more combo and am very disappointed and sort of feeling I want to toss the lot in the Bin.

Firstly I have many DJI Products and bought this just to see what it is like.

Many people use the Ipad Mini as the tablet of choice to fly DJI Drones and yet the DJI Fly App is pants on this tablet. It is just a phone app that looks and runs terrible. Come on DJI Get an app to work on the Ipad Mini.

Flying a drone with a phone makes little sense because of Incomming calls, Battery life, Stuffing your phone full of stuff you dont want, small screen size and a whole host of other issues.

Further I live nearish to an airfield from which Helicoptors are flown. The new DJI Fly App prevents my MM from taking off even in my house. I cant see anyway of unlocking it. (Of course we must consider the danger to aircraft from a 249g drone flying inside my house). Stupid does not begin to descride it.

My Advice would be think twice before you buy the Mavic Mini or scavange in the Bin behind my House because the whole lot will be in there in a while.

What a piece of useless kit DJI have produced this time..... What a letdown

I agree on the Fly Safe thing or whatever it is called. I get the good intention but to not be able to fly it in my backyard (4 miles from a non towered airport with only a non-precision approach) is very frustrating. Frustrating to have to wait a month and a half for the fix. I do love the Mini though. It takes super smooth footage for such a tiny package. And very fun to fly. Mine is working good with the iPad mini 4 however, no troubles there.

How are you getting it to work with the Ipad Mini 4 I have got the app but it does not fit the screen properly etc. Is there something I am missing

I just plugged it in and flew. Must be a setting I have different on the iPad mini 4. I would sure share if I knew! I saw another thread here with similar symptom but I think they had a different version of the iPad mini.

Hi, I am sorry to know that you are having issues with your DJI Mavic Mini, upon checking the iPad Mini is not yet listed as a recommended mobile device for the DJI Fly, it may work however we can't guarantee the stability of the said unit. for additional reference I will be posting a link and an image ( https://www.dji.com/dji-fly ) for the compatible devices. Second for the " No Fly Zone " issue, I will be posting a link
( https://www.dji.com/flysafe/custom-unlock ) to the DJI Flysafe department for unlocking request. Thank you.

The question is are you going to support the iPad Mini?
I have poor eyesight and find using my iPhone too hard, so bought the iPad Mini for the main use, now I find the new Fly App is terrible, it could be the deal breaker and I might have to return the Mavic Mini Combo and cancel the unused Care Package, yes it is that big of a deal breaker and I am amazed you never thought about it before releasing the scaled down Fly App!

I’m certain it’s not a piece of useless kit, to you maybe, but as you are very specific in what you were looking for you don’t want to look at any other options.

You could turn airplane mode on your phone, no calls
You could contact flysafe ask for permission , not as why you can’t fly but permission to fly.
There is already someone on this forum using iPad mini 3 quite successfully.

Putting it in the bin makes you look like an idiot, I’m certain you can return and get your money back , most sensible punters would choose this option .

I kind of agree here, true they have to fix whatever bugs they encounter, add compatibility for as many devices as possible etc. The DJI FLY App should be the smoother of all since is new and streamlined version.

However before I bought the drone, I thought a lot about airspace stuff, I used to live literally 2Km away from a huge international busy airport, basically imposible to fly anywhere near where I lived, that is one of the reasons I haven't pulled the drone plug before.

A year ago I had to move home, very remote place which for most people is a bad thing... however now I live in an area with absolutely nothing risky around it for miles, checking the AIRSPACE App is one of the main reasons I decided to get the Mini.

I see it can be frustating to see how you can't fly within your own house or backyard, seems tight but at the same time, the possibility exists that some risky person would do something stupid ending up possibly risking hundreds of lifes... If Im on an airplane, I would rather no drone in the area at all...

I am in a position that time is more important to me than £450. If I want to Bin it that is up to me. What you think about that is of little concern to me.

This product was released in a hurry and the App is not ready and does not work on Many devices. This is very poor on the part of DJI

So Perhaps we should stop all cars from starting their engines if they are ever in a place that could be dangerous. That would work well.

People should be told about no fly zones and then it is up to them. Using teck to stop/prevent is a very scary course to go down... Think about it

Well I dont see a car vs airplane that similar of a comparison, remember not that long ago in the UK some funny person flying a dron in the airport... thousands of people lost their flights, it lastesd days, many probably had to go to important things, weddings, work... to some part of my family actually created a huge problem with a funeral.

I understand your concern, I also think that they should allow an "indoor" mode, dissabling GPS for example I dont know... or just allow you to fly like 10m height and 30m radius if you are in a dangerous zone...

The fact that the APP has problemas, is a differnet story that yes, it has to be fixed asap.

I'm sorry you're having trouble getting things working the way you like. Hopefully you won't bin it if it comes to it. I'm sure there might be a deserving kid in the neighborhood who would love it if it came to binning it.

Interesting, iPhone 5S also listed there... I happen to have that phone and the App does install, I still have to check with the drone, however dont want to risk it.

That may be a list of devices in which it will install, but it may not work correctly, and thats why the DJI list is smaller... those are only the ones they can guarantee, it may grow in the near future.

Not in the Bin Yet and as I said I have no interest in your opinion of what I do with my money. Perhaps it is because you have obviously achieved so little that you feel so Jealous

Money is not the issue. I could not care less about the money. Call me old fashioned but when massive numbers of a product are released to consumers they should have been properly tested and should work properly. Not the case here it seems...... Beta Testers all of us

I had intended to buy several Fly More Packages together with some  Ipad mini's for my employees as Christmas Presents but Based on my testing so far and what I have seen it will have to be somthing different this year for them. I am sure it will get sorted but in time for Christmas I think not

Quite. That was what I saw and assumed was correct. The fact is the App in the App store is not correctly optimised for the Ipad Mini..... It is a Phone App

I have just managed to download the Fly App to my Samsung Tab S4 and Iam amazed because on this the Fly App is in full screen glory, not the small phone version, so how come you can make a full version for a 10.5" Tablet but not for a 7.9" iPad Mini?

Much earlier versions of the DJI Go or Go4 app either said nothing or did just tell you about it and let you move on.  But, people still did dumb things that would have regulated these products into non-existence.  Your statement of leaving it up to people to decide how and where to fly is absolutely short sighted and frightening.  I would urge you to think about it.  Pretty sure your opinion would change if you were on one of the flights in the proper flight path of an airport that was interfered with by a drone.
Agreed, that there could be an indoor or very limited outdoor range setting but that is as far as I would go.
