    Can we do one more Autopilot vs Litchi thread please?

    Hello fellow pilots, Since a few weeks I am a happy flyer with Sparky (on IOS) and since a good week using Autopilot from Hangar. Autopilot is a fine app but what I really would like is through autonomous flying (LCMC) and although Autopilot has that function, it also looses a lot of unique...

    Spark and Autopilot

    Can someone explain the focus strategies in Autopilot. I read thru the Hangar Autopilot Flight School but couldn't find the definitions or examples of the focus strategies. I understand some of them, such as, triggers, subject and joystick. But what is pattern, touch, device and passive? Can...

    IMU Error

    I have run Autopilot a while ago. Today it was impossible as there was IMU error. Loaded GO4 and calibrated the IMU as well as the compass. Then it was OK here but after shutting down everything and started Autopilot again there still was IMU error…?!? What can I do more?

    Autopilot on Spark - deleting engagement files

I would appreciate guidance if anyone can...

    Update: Finally lost my spark - !!! FOUND IT !!!!

    Have been lurking here for a while, trying to learn a bit, and enjoying flying my Spark. I've been playing with Autopilot as an app, and really liked how it allows for some smooth shots. But I think maybe my novice skills finally won out. I was practicing with Autopilot's "cruise" mode, which...

    Litchi vs. Autopilot vs. Go 4?

    I've seen a few posts that mention Litchi and Autopilot. Could someone who uses either or both of the alternative applications please explain them, as well as the pros and cons of Litchi and Autopilot versus DJI's Go 4 software?

    Spark and autopilot

    waypoints imported from google earth pro, shame it doesnt read the altitude data, but the spark did a great job in gusty conditions of up tp 20Mph, you can tell the limitations of the 2 axis gimble in these conditions, but alltogether pleased with the results.

    Autopilot+Spark - Flight Mode switch on RC

    I haven't flown with Autopilot yet. I'm still learning. In the Hangar Flight School, under 1.1 Overriding Autopilot, it says, "Critical: To override Autopilot, toggle the Flight Mode switch to the appropriate setting for your aircraft type (S for the Phantom 4 and Mavic, P for all others)...
