The DJI Go app is designed by DJI TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD to provide you with a first person view of your drone’s camera. The app lets you connect any mobile device to any drone of DJI series and get the maximum of your flying experience. It has so many features, settings, buttons and indicators that you might get lost at the first time. But no worries, you will get everything quickly if you spend some time on learning the app closer.

Functionality 5/5

So the main reason why would you use the DJI Go app is of course to get the first-person view of what your drone is recording. But this app also lets you easily manage your drone like taking it on and off with just one finger, controlling Intelligent Flight modes, tracking its position, calibrating its compass and other options. You can even set a home point within the app’s map and activate the feature of automatic home returning. Moreover, your drone can monitor your location and movements with the DJI GO app and fly after you.

To start with, right after you connect the app, you will see the same picture what your drone’s camera is seeing. With the app’s functionality, you will be able to adjust camera settings, capture images, review them, set control movements by your preference and so much more. However, there are a few important settings that can be easily skipped because of the complicated interface. Therefore, I will mention them and briefly describe each one.   

I have already mentioned such words as Intelligent Flight modes. So the Flight Mode sets how far the drone can fly and makes the drone's managing incredibly simple for the beginners because they don’t need to adjust anything. The default settings keep the drone from flying more than 200 meters away, but you can edit these parameters whenever you want. You are allowed even to take the limits off. However, you will get a warning not to fly over 400 feet above and keep a proper distance from airports.

Another important setting is the drone’s compass just because your drone determines its location with the compass and if something goes wrong, the drone will be lost. That might happen due to the compass sensitiveness to electromagnetic interference, which can cause problems with flight performance or even lead to flight’s failure. Thus you better calibrate your drone’s compass before exploring new locations.

Also, you should pay enough attention to the GPS calibration. If you’re using a wifi connection while managing your drone, then the app automatically calibrates the GPS. But if you’re connected to the drone via mobile internet, then you will need to rotate your phone to set a proper calibration manually.

I have mentioned just some of the app’s functions, but there are way more of them like formats, exposure adjustments, shutter settings, filters and all of them can be controlled directly from your mobile device via the DJI GO app. So, before start using the app and send your drone into the sky, you better spend some time and look through all of the app’s features. Otherwise, you risk to push a wrong button and get the broken drone.

Design 4/5

The DJI GO app has a slightly confusing interface because, as I previously mentioned, there are dozens of various switches and buttons that might scare you for the first time. But the app has three extremely helpful overlays for users that you will get right after you launch the app at first.  

When you launch the app, you will see a homepage with a small panel bar at the bottom which has four icons like “Equipment,” “Library,” “Explore” and “Me.” The first one from the right is simply your DJI profile which gives you access to the DJI Forum, store, and settings. The “Explore” section opens up an online media gallery that displays all photos and videos other DJI operators have captured. The next “Library” stores all your media on the SD card in your drone and the last one probably doesn’t need to be explained. On the top right corner, you will find a help section where you can find answers to any questions about the app. The last icon on the screen is your flight log which looks like a small paper airplane on the left side, and that displays the total distance and time you have flown.

All the setting for your drone are adjusted from the beginning, and it’s totally up to you whether to change them or keep as they are. Whenever something goes wrong with the drone, a particular icon will get colored in red and notify you of the problem. But if you see that the menu says “Normal” and you don’t see anything red, then your drone is functioning properly, and you can send it into the sky.  

Usability 4/5

Downloading and launching the DJI GO app is pretty simple, but using it is also easy and will brighten up your flying experience. When you launch the app at first, you will get a helpful step by step instruction that explains to you how to connect your drone to the app and start using it right away. Once you set everything, your drone saves settings for future flights. Moreover, the app has a built-in Flight Record feature that allows the drone to synchronize flight data with your mobile device and keep it available to you anytime.

The DJI GO app has a feature that lets you share your personal media with other users in just one tap. It also has some built-in customization options, so you can add music to any of your videos, use filters and make a video clip.

Cross-platform use 4/5

If you’re a happy owner of one of the drones like DJI Mavic Pro, DJI Phantom or a DJI Inspire, then you should try the DJI GO app which is available to download for any device that runs Android 4.1+ or iOS 8.0 and higher.  

In-app purchases

The DJI GO app was designed especially for owners of DJI GO drones to provide them with an easy way of controlling and it is absolutely free to use and doesn’t have any in-app purchases to offer. However, it has some ads that might distract you during the flight.

Conclusion

The DJI Go app by DJI TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD makes any drone’s controlling so simple, especially if you have one of the DJI series drones. The app displays you the first person view of your drone’s camera so that you can easily watch everything that your drone is recording. You can connect any of your mobile devices to your drone via this app and manage the flying experience from the mobile’s screen. The DJI GO app has so many features and settings that you will unlikely have enough time to learn and use all of them. Therefore, don’t wait anymore and try to rise to the sky now!
