(Android) How to install .apk files to fly Phantom 2 Vision(+) and Solo drones

From version 3.8.3, the support of DJI Phantom 2 Vision(+) and 3DR Solo is discontinued. It means there is no further development for these drones. To keep flying with the app, follow this procedure.

1. Download Pix4Dcapture 3.8.1: Click here.
2. Connect the mobile device to the computer using a USB cable.
3. Access the internal storage of the device and browse for the desired directory.
4. Move pix4dcapture_3.8.1.apk to that location. It does not matter where the .apk file is stored.
5. Disconnect the device.
6. Open a file manager app.
7. Browse to find the .apk file. It is normally accessible from the Applications category.
8. Select pix4dcapture_3.8.1.apk to start the installation.


Tip: There might be some restriction during the installation as the app is not downloaded from Google Play. As it is not the default workflow, the device can prevent from installing Pix4Dcapture. To bypass this limitation:

1. Open the Settings app of the mobile device.
2. From the list, tap Security (or something similar).
3. Scroll until to find the option related to unknown sources apps and allow the installation of non-official apps.
