I didn't realize that the Litchi app is a full replacement for the DJI GO app. Does Litchi contain ALL the features of the DJI GO?

ONLY get it if you need or want to do waypoints programming WITHOUT having to fly to location first to 'record' a position using DJI Go.

It is an intentional limitation of DJI Go, thereby generating a defacto market for third party software like Litchi and Autopilot.

Or Litchi has other features too that you may want. For me those other features are not as important.

You need both, if you spend all that money on the drone, you need Litchi to open up some other options.

Show,

Litchi all the way! You need DJI Go for some settings but that's it. I only fly with Litchi. Just my opinion. of course.

Some features of Litchi :
- You plan your route before take off
- You program the aircraft heading (yaw) and gimbal/camera angle (pitch) for each waypoint and the litchi makes smooth transitions between them
- VR mode if you like to watch your flight through googles like VR Box (with your mobile phone inserted to them)
- iOS Litchi can make screen recording
- Draw your missions on your PC's browser (flylitchi.com/hub)

Waypoint missions mean you can sit in your nice warm house and plan sorties into the unknown, then sit back and have a coffee and wait for your bird to return with some treasure......or not.

A good waypoint mission comes with time, you can keep fine tuning it to get the perfect program, then your ready for the day when it's best suited weather wise to go out and get your footage/shots.

Litchi allows Phantom 3 to use a tracking feature similar to the one on the Phantom 4. Also it has automatic panorama.

There's no need to select one or the other. I have DJI Go, Litchi and Vertical Studio and I use them all, depending upon what I'm trying to do. I often swap between apps during a flight.  Litchi is ideal for waypoint flying and also manual flyng whilst DJI Go has many options and is also great for manual flying. Vertical Studio has walls and rails which are both excellent features. Given the price of the drone itself, the additional cost of each of the apps is negligible.

Litchi is the best for sharp professional aerial photo and videos.
You can also fly very very far away from your home point. The only limit for the distance is your batterie capability.
Yes at a long distance you will lose signal but the Phantom will always come back after having accompilsh his mission.
The concept is that the mission data is uploaded into your Phantom or Inspire.
It can be freaky of course but it work.
You must plan in perfection what will be your mission and the altitude is extremely important to avoid all potential obstacles on the mission route.With Litchi, your Phantom can fly faster than it can with DJI GO. DJI GO have limited the speed last year for Phantom series for a reason we do not understand.
With Lichi in the settings you can get 54 kmh of speed limit.
Litchi improved his IOS most every week.
They now have:
Waypoint
Orbit
Pano
Focus
Track and Follow.
I highly recommand Litchi.

@ GQ:

Sir, because of your post on the benefits of the Litchi app, I pulled the trigger and purchased it.  I look forward to trying it out after I get off work.

One more thing not mentioned. When flying a Litchi waypoint mission, you arent limited to camera facing forward. You may still yaw left and right and the drone stays on its true course

There are a lot more advantages to Litchi for Waypoint missions other than being able to program it in remotely. Even if you create the mission in the field (as I do, because it's easier), you get to set a lot more options.

As others have said, it is not a complete replacement. But that's no biggie, since you already have the DJI Go app for free.

the ability to use their website to create your waypoint missions via google maps is amazing, and worth the $20 on its own.

No.

Unless the DJI Go app is itself faulty, like the 2.8.2 iOS one.   In that kind of situation, Litchi is a very good replacement.

With litchi I gain 150 meters in the range (the limit signal is just lower ;) ), I manage to unlock 1080 in 60 FPS in my Phantom 3 Standard ;)

But I I prefer Dji Go for POI and classic flying. I use the two app depending the flight I will do.

Don't forget to "kill manually the process" of the Dji Go app in your phone before launching Litchi

Is it true that flying with Litchi will void the Phantom's warranty? I think I read it somewhere in this forum. Thanks All!

If you lose the machine due to an app related glitch, and have no recourse or recompense, then the app isn't worth it.
Is it going to increase my risk of catastrophic failure?
Damage to my craft?
Or worse.....others.....?
I would love to believe its all that litchi is "allthat and a bag of chips", and you guys make me hungry, but if I lose my Phantom 4, I'm gonna cry.

Add 'Pano' to the list. It is a nice feature. Drone takes number of pictures, a user defines, which can later be stitch using a panorama maker on computer.

Chris - Since I have a wi-fi only tablet, I probably can only create a mission on the desktop; is that correct?
