How to revert back to DJI Pilot? (Android)

August 17, 2015

If you left your Google Play to ‘auto update’ apps, and you woke up with a dodgy DJI GO app that replaced your DJI Pilot – fret not. I have a copy of the final version of DJI Pilot app (version 1.2.0) that you can download on my dropbox.

Before downloading, I highly recommend that you turn off that ‘auto update’ by going to Google Play – hit your menu key, click on settings, click the ‘Auto-Update apps’ and select ‘Do not auto-update apps’. You can still update your apps manually though, so no worries on that.

Now that’s done and out of the way, you can uninstall your DJI GO app, and then download the final DJI Pilot app from my dropbox by clicking > HERE <

(There is no need to have a dropbox account to download, however, if you want one, please register via my link > HERE < and both of us may get extra space! Sharing is caring :-) )

Make sure you allow non Google Play app to install by going to Settings > Security > then enable ‘unknown sources’ if you have not done so.

I found that DJI Pilot app is a bit lighter on processor usage then the DJI GO. What do you guys think?

By the way, here’s my recent video of Phantom 3 and Inspire 1 night fly for you guys to drool over ๐Ÿ˜›

Phantom 3 FPV lag fix / How to make your Android phones perform faster

August 16, 2015

Would you like to make your Android phones / tablet performs faster or better?

This post will show you some simple tips on how to do it. Who knows, you might actually unleash the hidden kitten beast that’s been lurking in your Android devices ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you have an Ipad Air 2 or an Iphone 6, you should have good smooth live view / FPV for your Phantom 3. However live view stutters and jerky are the norm if you are using an Android device. I’m using a Redmi Note (an Octa-core, 2GB RAM,ย Mali-450MP4 GPU) and things can get a little bit ugly for this mid range phone as it’s not that powerful to begin with.

However, I did some tweaks to my Redmi Note and saw great improvements afterwards. Although this is mainly focused on the DJI Pilot / DJI Go app for Phantom 3 live view / FPV – Normal Android users may also get benefit from this tutorial, resulting in a more smoother interface, faster response time on both normal tasks and gaming.

Watch the guide and let me know if this simple performance tweak works.
