Mavic Mini – DJI Fly – Nowa Aplikacja

Hi Guys, one of a new tittle-tatle around the society among many others, but one of the key features is definitely DJI Fly App. Te app that is actually unavailable so far. I’ve been trying to scan QR Code from Quick Start Guide and trying to find it in Appstore unfortunately no result for today. That means that all the celebrities, that published Mavic Mini’s reviews so far, they did not use common source it was just a developer version of the APP. What is also significant, talking to app features…. the RC, it has no Sport Mode or Pause button/swich and function buttons, that we could define before, So those features that we shoul find inside the DJI Fly App. So I tried to collect available screenshots and info re. DJI Fly App as the beta version of the App was delivered for first tests so let’s have an overview so the icon looks like this as I QR code scanned from Quick Start Guide and the code sends to Mavic Mini product page…. so the App is not available this way…. so let’s have look at the camera view…. looks that way: top left corner: flight modes P, S and C that means Position (normal mode), Sport (fast mode) and CineSmooth – buttery smooth CineSmooth is a new mode that is sth between Tripod and Cinematic Mode and the letter indicates the mode we are currently using the next icons on the top right corner are signal, battery and flight time estimation so thete is 75 % of battery left and 20 minutes 50 seconds flight time left The App itself is shown very well by Iphonedo On the main screen we can find Album, Skypixel, Profile and location, so there is Flysafe support and indicates photo spots around the location switching the modes: P, S and C on the top right side, clicking on range icon we can find satellites range, battery temperature, and the voltage on the cells pls keep in mind, the battery is LiIo, 2S, 7.4V next is flight time and overall voltage on the top right corner – there are 3 dots when you click, you access main menu and right here we can find: and active header is bold and undelined so now the “About” menu is active so let’s have an overview Shortcuts is small, there is only update, gimbal recenter and drone binding so when we want to update the home point to current position gimbal recenter – camera back to middle, central position and the 3rd one: connection with the drone if there is eg. a new unit The next one: “Safety” is more interesting, so we can set max. altitude above ground level, max distance we can fly from the home point, so when you let flying to someone not very trusted, you can limit the altitude and distance of the particular flight, next point is Return Home Altitude – the level that drone comes back when looses the signal or the battery is low and downstairs – IMU and Compass calibration keep in mind that in Mavic Mini we can not prompt compass calibration from the controller by switching Sport mode button (slider), we have to go down to menu “Safety” and select the Compass Calibration option The next header is “Control” so here we can select the Flight mode, so this is a second place where we can choose the flight mode, beside camera view screen – top left corner, S, P and C then we have the units: metric m and km and imperial, mph or ft gimbal mode – follow – gimbal with camera keeps the level – the horizon for FPV gimbal is locked – keeps camera same position as the aircraft like FPV Quad so the camera does not keep the horizon straight there is also gimbal calibration, that is clear the next header of menu, “Camera” aspect ratio as the sensor is 1/2.3 “, 12 Mpx, and it is 3000 x 4000 pixels so we can choose 2 types of aspect ratio: 4:3 or 16:9 next is “Storage Location” as Mavic Mini has no internal storage so we can choose SD Card or Phone storage and next is SD Card data so he uses 256 Gb SD Card I wonder if it works fine…. Advanced Settings and Reset Camera Settings – this is only visible at the moment… the next point describes the Transmission and Frequency we can switch between manual and auto modes and next header is “About” the name of the drone that you can define there is also model name: Arya – does not look like editable firmware version – usually needs to be updated… FlySafe Database – here we are updating No Flying Zones the App version – 0.18.0 then we can see, how many times the battery was charged…. serial number of battery, serial number of drone, serial number of camera, and that is actually, what I found concerning the menu iJustine shows us the Video mode there is Exposure Lock so the exposure does not change during the shoot and we can also compensate the exposure – up or down as we see, iJustine underexpose the shoot, there is -1.3 EV and then we can observe, video and foto settings, and also Quick Shots, as there are no Inteligent Flight Modes, they Integrated Quick Shots into Photo and Video Modes so we have only 4 Quick Shots: no Asteroid, no Boomerang, there are only Dronie, Helix, Rocket and Circle and we can select the range of Quick Shot flight so we can observe 40-120 ft in this particular case so there are imperial units in US and now the Dronie 80 feet and now Helix there is also distance option, OK, as you see, iPhonedo uses metric units, 25 m, and we have visual tracking during the shot so we should be in the middle of the screen so, there are no Active Tracking, POI, Tapfly, but we can use Circle and also, Quick Shots are very short, no way rto track longer time… so far we could experience 10-20 sec of the Quick Shots recording OK, so we can also find a quite interesting comment: “Takeoff Permited” so it looks like if we’d try take off in a NFZ, there would appear: “Takeoff prohibited” 😉 what more o there is map as usual in a bottom left corner, and telemetry data on the bottom left side there is an altitude, distance from home point, vertical speed and horizontal speed as well and now let’s move to Photo and Video Menu there is a yellow icon over the REC tab, and we can select Photo, Video or Quick Shots Quick Shots used to be in Inteligent Flight Modes before but right here we have separate 3 modes: Photo, Video and Quick Shotes, and in the Photo mode we can select only , single Photo and Timed Shots – Timelapse there is no HDR, no Panorama, no AEB, etc. it is a crucial point and key buying factor, so this tiny flycam has limited dynamic range, and no Pano Mode for today, as well as AEB no chance to extend a dynamic range, no RAW as well no colour profile, style, no white balance settings, but we can set shutter speed manually in a photo mode there is no shutter wheel on the remote controller as well there is only gimbal tilt wheel on the left side so we set the manual shutter speed in the app, and the ISO is also adjustable but the video has only exposure compensation setting and exposure lock and photo mode offers us also shutter speed manual setting and now we see the photo mode there is also histogram, that is really great and timed shot with interval 2s – 60 s iphonedo shows similar settings the overview that we already made and Quick Shots ent the editor – that is fast and direct great presets for beginers, insta lover and facebook very fast and effective way of content sharing just by the Smartphone 4 shots for 10 second, 5 shots for 10 second and 6 shots for 20 seconds so that is a great preset, and then we can generate the video just from the app there is also a grid setting there are more settings that I did not found so far but the conclusion is that the app is very simple created for common users not looking for professional shots or video but more on the cell phone user for users of Mavic AIR this drone is not atractive… but for someone shooting on autopilot…. and let’s say 70 % do not use a full potential of Mavic Air so Mavic Mini is enough for many people what I have found, based on the available information for today, but for me the safety features are very important: nr of satellites display on main page, the big question is whether we can use Find My Drone feature, and that is crucial in order to find this tiny flycam it does no sensors, so we can crash much easier, and usually we can use Find mY Drone in DJI Go4 App sound buzz and the leds and I hope that DJI Fly has such a feature so Mavic Mini sets own market segment and the Spark used DJIApp but the market and money rules so thank you for watching that is what I found for today, I”ll fly this drone soon, as soon as possible thank you once again and please keep in mind my Udemy Courses and our Facebook group “Latam Dronem od DJI” See you, bye
