    Has anyone had any experience with the Litchi control app vs the DJI GO. Pros, cons, comments?

    Welcome Glock4me.

    I have just started using Litchi myself. It took me a while to try it. Now that I have so far I am impressed with it. I am still trying out the different things, but overall it is better the DJI Go App in my opinion. Others may think differently.

    I bought it, never could get it to work without a 2-4 second lag on my Galaxy S5. Tried it on my LG tablet, too. Same issues. Emailed for a refund, got no reply. I'll try it again when I upgrade my phone, someday.

    After I purchased it, I used it on my Acer Iconia tab8. Have some video lag with it. Then I installed it on my Nvidia Shield and I have been getting good results. I did not purchase the IOS version for my Ipad. Probably won't. Works OK on the Android device.

    Can you purchase it for multiple devices? I have an lg phone, and a fire tablet, and I'm looking to getaway from dji go. I guess what I mean is, do I have to buy it twice for each of my devices?

    I don't think so.
    There's one for Android devices and then the app for IOS
    I think if you purchase for Android, you can use it on all your android devices.
    I put it on two of my Android Tablets. Only bought it once.

    Looking at it is better on Android as it has more modes, Autopilot would be what I used on iOS.

    That's all I was wondering. I've got to get away from all these updates from dji. There may be updates with litchi, but I doubt they would be as problematic as dji's updates. Thanks.

    I've just started using litchi and I like it. Flew a couple of missions with it and it's been faultless. Worth the money and works fine on my ipad mini 2.

    Does the Litchi have better video channel selection then DJI go? the DJI go cut it down to channels 13-20 only.

    Keep in mind, Litchi is subject to all firmware issues. They only way it might be more protected is when DJI updates the Go app alone. Most people have not had an issue with the Go app updates.

    There is a hack that can be applied to the Go app to expand the range of the channels just as in Litchi. You can search the forum on how to do this. It's very simple.

    The android version may be used on multiple Android systems and the IOS version may be loaded on multiple Apple systems. They may not be interchanged. I had to buy both:(

    Yip tried both ,I like litchi good info feedback only flaw I think is no clipping for vids etc,had to get pro vidio editor just for this unlike djigo4 has couple features for this ,,litchi was saving to file manager which for some reason was a headache to edit vidios,(probly op error),even as a 3rd party app litchi was and is very stable compared to djigo4 always want to rth with occasional disconnection, no such behavior from litchi :)
