As a result of there may be such numerous flight management functions for drones, downloading and putting in the correct app has grow to be a posh job, particularly after the DJI firm eliminated the DJI Fly app from the Google Play Retailer.

The appliance used to regulate the Mavic Mini is the DJI fly app. You possibly can obtain it to your system here.

  • Click on on the Obtain button.
  • After downloading, click on on the downloaded file to put in it.
  • Ultimately, you will note the app icon in your system’s display.

To hyperlink the distant controller and the quadcopter:

  1. Press the distant controller energy button and maintain for 4 seconds
  2. Press and maintain the plane energy button for 4 seconds to start linking.

In case you are utilizing a cell system, you have to join it to the RC utilizing an information cable.

Within the following sections, I’ll give detailed directions on finishing each the obtain and set up processes.

I can even cowl the flight choices and linking between the parts in line with the flight choice choice, in addition to vital steps to comply with earlier than your flight.

The sensible obtain and  pre-requirements

In 2021, DJI eliminated DJI Fly from the Google Play Retailer, complicated the group. Earlier than, the whole set up from begin to end was achieved by google. Now the set up have to be achieved in two steps: 

a) Downloading the apk file.

b) The set up itself.

You possibly can obtain it both on a  pill or mobile phone. If downloading on a pill, be certain your wifi sign is related to the web.

Additionally, be certain your system has the precise Android model as talked about within the obtain button and that you’ve got sufficient space for storing in your cell system.

(In your telephone or pill, go to the setting to test the android model. Do the identical for iOS. At the moment DJI Fly requires iOS 11.0 / Android 6.0 or greater).

To obtain the Fly App, click on here.

What’s the APK file?

Though it’s a technical idea that you do not want to know, due to the obtain course of, we are going to briefly clarify the idea.

Each utility on Android has a corresponding APK file. This file is known solely by the processor, so to have a DJI fly utility that you should use, you obtain this APK file, which is then put in on the system.

As talked about above, you obtain from the hyperlink offered. Respectively, in line with the working system in iOS, it’s an IPA file. For each APK and IPA information, the content material is gibberish and comprehensible solely to the processor of the system.

How do I do know the file was loaded and put in?

Since you’re downloading by way of a  third occasion, you get this message:

Faucet Obtain anyway. Throughout downloading, you see this image

  and when it’s completed, you see this image .

In easy phrases, a  third occasion is putting in an utility, not by way of the traditional approach utilizing the Google Play retailer. It’s possible you’ll want to vary settings within the system to proceed the set up.

To grasp the third-party idea and make a change within the settings, it is suggested to observe   this brief video:

On the finish of downloading, you get the next info:

After downloading, faucet the road with that image

to set up the DJI fly app. The set up processing begins and finishes while you get this:

Congratulations, the appliance DJI fly is in your cell system. Search on the system display for the icon:

Opening the app and making a DJI account

To open the appliance, a DJI account is required. So that you can use the DJI Fly utility correctly, it is advisable to log in to your DJI Account one time earlier than the activation.

Nonetheless, after you have already activated your plane, there isn’t a have to log in to the app as the appliance already saves your info, and it’ll auto-login when you provoke or open the app.

If you happen to don’t have such an account, set it up here.

Linking and flight choices

Linking, binding, and pairing are phrases indicating that two components “can talk” with one another.

Binding an RC to the plane receiver creates a singular quantity that they share in order that that drone will solely reply to that radio. In easy phrases, they’ll go info to one another and solely between them.

You possibly can often fly a drone with a cell system alone or with a distant alone or with a cell system and a distant.

For instance, with a DJI spark, any risk of the three is feasible.

However with the Mavic Mini, the choice of drone and cell system alone just isn’t attainable.

You will need to have all three or simply the drone and distant management.

Linking through bodily buttons

If the lights on the Mavic Mini RC are steady and the backlight of the plane is blinking inexperienced gentle, this implies they’re linked.

If not, you are able to do Linking via bodily buttons:

  • Press the distant controller energy button and maintain for 4 seconds
  • Then press and maintain the plane energy button for 4 seconds to start linking.

You are able to do the linking by way of the app too. Watch this video for the best way to hyperlink.

Connecting RC to a cell system (pill or telephone)

To attach the RC to a cell system, use the Mavic distant controller information cable.

There are 4 varieties of information cable:

By the best way, the cables are very brief, so for those who use a pill or a big cell system, it is going to be troublesome to attach them bodily, so it’s best to order or purchase an appropriate lengthy information cable.

A protracted OTG cable (OTG stands for ‘on the go’) has a micro-A plug on one finish, and a micro-B plug on the opposite finish (it can not have two plugs of the identical kind)

Earlier than you fly the drone

Earlier than beginning to fly a drone, many issues must be verified, similar to distance, most peak, and many others. However two important issues have to be checked: the drone “acknowledges its place” and is sufficiently steady in its flight.

For this, two processes have to be carried out. The primary on nearly each flight, particularly for those who change location, and the second at the least on occasion. The 2 processes are:

  1. Test compass calibration. This implies the drone is aware of its location in comparison with north, and its peak.
  2. Test IMU calibration. This implies the drone is aware of its angles in three dimensions, its velocity, and acceleration.

Here’s a hyperlink to the best way to calibrate the Mavic Mini compass and IMU.

Additionally, in case you are in GEO Authorization Zones, you have to be sure to have permission to fly on this territory.

It’s occurred to me earlier than. I ready every thing, however sadly, I used to be within the GEO Authorization Zone, and I solely had a pill (so I didn’t have the web to request unlocking).

Most often, the “children drones” are merely flown with the assistance of the distant management, with out particular changes, no GPS, as you see youngsters flying toy drones.

I like to recommend beginning with these drones as a result of that’s the way you purchase management and ability with the distant management whereas flying it in Angle Mode, which suggests the drone can drift round within the wind.
