The DJI Fly application is available under iOS and Android to take control of the DJI Mavic Mini. After a large majority of drone being driven by DJI GO and DJI GO 4, it is now the DJI Fly application that is highlighted. As the new APP for DJI Mavic Mini drone, many users don’t know how to operate it. We made a detail introduction about the DJI Fly APP. Let’s have a look!

DJI Fly APP Main page introduction

When you connect your smartphone to the remote control, the application starts automatically. You thus access the home interface which is divided into several parts that we will detail.

DJI Fly APP Main page introduction

2. Fly Spots: Discover the fun places to fly! This is not available in France at the moment.

6. Profile: Access your profile, information and flight data.

DJI Fly APP settings - Location

In order to discover the environment in which you are going to fly, there is nothing like looking at a map. You will see the potential dwellings and public places but especially the restricted areas called NoFlyZones.

The advantage is that you do not have to be on the flight field to view this information. You can, from home, consult the prohibited or limited areas. In addition, you do not need to connect to the drone, you can access the map from the application at any time.

Share and discover the flight locations appreciated by other DJI UAV pilots. If you are in a region you don't know, don't worry, the best places will be listed.

Unfortunately, at the time of writing this article, the function is not yet available in France. We hope that it will soon become so.

As we said in the introduction, the DJI Fly application has a "help center" category but it is not yet updated.

There are several sections inside, such as video tutorials introducing you to the functions, driving tips, safety instructions and the user guide.

DJI Fly APP settings - Album 

Check out the photos and videos you recorded during your last flights! The images are recorded in low resolution on your smartphone so you can quickly show them to your friends and family or simply to get an idea of their quality.

From the album, you can start editing your images directly in the DJI Fly APP. Preconfigured templates are available to provide you with videos very quickly. With a few clicks you define the images you want to see appear during editing and share them on social networks.

Alternatively, you can choose to customize your assemblies to your liking with the Pro function. You will find many possible settings, such as: cut, color adjustment, volume management, playback speed, time reversal, etc.
