(Android, iOS) Which drones are supported by Pix4Dcapture

The status of Pix4Dcapture regarding the different drones, cameras, and controllers is described in the table below. When the app has not been tested, it means that the app could work but Pix4D makes no guarantee. Coming soon means the support is planned and should be available in maximum two months.

 
Information: Non-DJI camera mounted on DJI drones cannot fly with the app because the connection is broken between the camera and the drone. The best case would be that the drone follows the flight plan but the camera is not triggered. It would then require a camera timer to activate the shutter which should work on iOS but not an Android. This feature is under development.

Tip: The following drone are recommended:
  • DJI Phantom 3 4K: Select Phantom 3 Advanced or Professional.
  • DJI Phantom 4 Advanced: Select Phantom 4 Pro.

    Hello,

    Are you working in making a compatible version of Pix4D with Disco Pro AG in Android?

    If yes, when would we have the honour?

     

    Thanks,

    Hi Kay,

    Having a compatible version of Pix4Dcapture on Android with the Disco-Pro AG is not in the pipeline so far.

    Hello,

    I would like to know when Pix4D will provide their support to Phantom 4 Pro +

  • Stefan Dobrev

    I am sorry for repeated question, but i am flying Phantom 4 Pro V2.0, is it going to be suppoerted soon?

  • Gaël (Pix4D)

    @Ibrahim, it is not in the pipeline to officially support P4P+. However, some users of this drone succeed to make it work quite nicely using Pix4Dcapture and explained the procedure here.

    @ Stefan, please consider following this thread as we will communicate as soon as the support of the P4P V2 is implemented in Pix4Dcapture. The development of the support for this drone is currently ongoing.

    @all, this space is dedicated to give feedback about the articles themselves. For example, we will be glad to get your feedback if, from your perspective, you are noticing wrong, missing, outdated or unclear information.

    Hi, there are some prevision to support P4A (DJI Phantom 4 Advanced)?

    How you can check the configuration in DJI site, the P4A is very similar to the P4P (DJI Phantom 4 Pro), differencing basically by avoindance sensors and some improvements in datalink, see:

    https://www.dji.com/products/compare-consumer-drones (add P4A and P4P to compare, and hide dupplicated details)


    I tried to configure in Pix4DCapture the model "Phantom 4 Pro", but when I connect the drone P4A, the options returns to "Phantom 4"

    And I can't use the 20Mpixel from native P4A.

    Maybe the Pix4D can release a version "beta" of Pix4DCapture, for users interested in test with P4A, accepting all the terms and responsabilities like beta-testers, even because, the status in this listing is "Not Tested".

    I think that option will reach a lot of users that own P4A.

    Your app are very stable and usefull, I think this option will be very interesting for users that avoid another loaded apps, like dronedeploy.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Thiago,

    Thank you for your nice feedback about our application.
    For now, it is not in the pipeline to officially support Phantom 4 Advanced. You are right that differences with P4P are not huge but they are existing and time will be needed to develop an official support for it. Currently, it is not in our priorities. However, some users tried to test it and sometimes with good success. You can have a look at this thread on our community website.
    If changes occur about the support of this drone we will communicate there.

    Anyone have an idea if and when the 4 pro + will be compatible to install Pix4d?

    if not, is there a work-around?

    Is it support for DJI matrice 600 pro?

    Edited by AI Surveyor drone
  • Gaël (Pix4D)

    Hi, Al Surveyor drone,

    As you can see in our article, DJI Matrice 600 is supported on iOS but has not been tested on Android. As it has not been tested on Android, we can not make any guarantee that it will work using it. We suggest to select DJI Matrice 100 in the drone list if using Android version of Pix4Dcapture.

    Hi there,

    After having run some test-missions with this Pix4D app on DJI CrystalSky monitor and Inpsire 2 with Zenmuse X5S I have two questions:

    - The Zenmuse X5S camera supports different lenses. Is there a way to change that setup in the app's settings? Or should the app detect the lens setup automatically?

    - Should the app be able to (auto)focus when taking pictures during the mission?

     

    Regards,

    HASTA AHORITA NO HE PODIDO HACER UN PLAN DE VUELO CON MI PHANTOM 4 ADVANCED PORQUE NO SE CONECTA CON EL DRON LA APLICACION SE QUE NO ESTA APROBADO, PERO PARA CUANDO ESTARÍA APROBADO ESTA APLICACION PARA DICHO DRON.?

  • Gaël (Pix4D)

    @Eerst, by default, Pix4Dcapture will take the X5S with 15mm focal length parameters. There is no way to easily change that in our application. However, on iOS, as a workaround, you can try the following but we can not make any guarantee that it will work as we did not test it. We would be glad to have feedback from users trying these methods.
    Workaround 1:
    - In DJI manufacturer app (DJI GO, DJI GO4), set a timelapse if the option is available. It won't be possible to make it work if the option is not available.
    - Quit the manufacturer application, open Pix4Dcapture and set a custom camera. The important step is to have the same timelapse defined in Pix4Dcapture and in the manufacturer app.
    - Start the mission.
    Note that you will have to activate a time-lapse in the drone manufacturer app as the camera cannot be controlled by Pix4Dcapture.
    Workaround 2:
    - Using Safe mode and defining the custom camera (without defining any time-lapse), pictures might be triggered automatically at the defined waypoints.

    About your second question, yes Pix4Dcapture will be able to autofocus.

    @Omar, it is not in our pipeline to support officially the Phantom 4 Advanced (P4A). However, some users tried to test it and sometimes with good success. You can have a look at this thread on our community website. If changes occur about the support of this drone we will communicate there.
