Many of our readers are Litchi users and fans for good reason. Some prefer the Litchi app over the DJI Go 4 app because of its simplicity. Others because the app offers the waypoints functionality for the DJI Mavic Air (now also for the Spark). Yesterday the app received a substantial update both for Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android platform. The update applies to the DJI Mavic, Phantom, Inspire and Spark.
