Version 1.2.0

What is new

  • Support of DJI Phantom 4.
  • Upgrade to SDK 3.1.0.
  • Ability to choose between a safe (stop-and-shoot) and a fast flying mode (no stops but connection with the drone is required during all the mission to trigger the camera). Note that the safe mode is selected by default.


  • Compatibility with latest DJI firmware.
  • Ability to tweak the drone’s speed in the Grid Mission settings (fast mode only).
  • (Bebop 2) If the app crashes or if the connection is lost, an alert will be displayed when restarting the app. It suggests to either continue or stop the mission and will refocus the Map View background on the current location of the mission.

Known bugs

  • Due to some communication delays between the drone and the app, the location of camera icons on the flight tracks of the mission could be wrong. However the real geolocation of captured images remains accurate.

Bug fixes

  • (Inspire 1 Pro) X5 camera focus.
    The focus should be set to infinite with DJI GO, but the gimbal may not rotate at the beginning of the mission. Check on Camera View and do it manually if needed.
  • (Bebop 2) Image overexposure.
  • Various bug fixes.
