I am considering buying wither Litchi or Ultimate flight as an enhanced ground station. The features are similar, but slightly different. If you have used both, I'd appreciate your feedback before I buy either.
I have Litchy for follow me DJI Ultimate with ground control for way point missions and Pilot by taco for ground station and vision + Booster utility not sure either been using them for a month or so they all lose signal and come back on and cameras in different view have hard time seeing the gimbal go up and down but it's fine when I play back video but all these sudden gimbal up and down because I was trying to but it would cut out I think I like Ultimate flight so far they all could be better for the price to much lag I like all 3 because they all do different things and have voice so I don't have to look for tiny letters and just concentrate on filming
I have DJI Vision, DJI Ultimate Flight, FPV Booster, and I just bought Vision Pilot because it has POI. I have a P2V+ v3.0 and I bought an Acer 8" tablet for this so I can see it better than on my Galaxy S5.
Well, as it turns out, Vision Pilot can only do POI if my tablet has a compass in it, which it does not. Nice. He got my money and I got squat.
I still use the tablet but I gave up on POI (and Vision Pilot) and I am learning to fly a circle and keep the nose pointed in myself. I did the slow yaw mod, it works great! I reverted back to DJI Ultimate Flight. I feel the safest with this one.
Now for my question finally: Will Litchy need a compass in the tablet to perform POI and follow me?
I use Litchi, it Works just fine for missions and POI my main problem is loosing FPV signal and then being unable to see what I´m recording. Kahen, when using POI the Phantom yaws rough so you see the the horizontal movement in the video recording. Can this be bad calibration or is it just thae way POI Works?
I have been flying the Litchi app for a while now. LAst night was the first time I tried taking pictures while recording video. As soon as I took the picture, FPV froze. The pictures are also not stored. If it helps, I am using Android 4.4 on a Galaxy S3.
