DJI launches new social search and discovery mobile app
The ‘DJI+ Discover’ app helps people find and connect with like-minded drone enthusiasts and professional aerial service providers nearby.

Shenzhen, April 8, 2016 – DJI, the world’s leading commercial drone manufacturer, Friday launched a new social platform called “DJI+ Discover.”

Users can access DJI+ Discover via an iOS or Android app. The mobile app connects people socially and professionally by enabling drone-pilots and drone enthusiasts to start conversations and meet up while also functioning as a professional marketplace for aerial service providers and potential clients. Further, the app is a gateway to the broader DJI community, including an integrated version of the DJI Forum, the DJI online store, SkyPixel, upcoming DJI events and more.

“Drone pilots like to get together to fly, learn from each other and share experiences with like-minded people. In the same way, people want an easy way to find trustworthy professional aerial service providers nearby,” said Paul Guo, Director of E-Commerce at DJI. “DJI+ Discover lets people in the same area connect socially and professionally in a way that will bind the drone community even tighter together.”

The app is easy to use and divided into four sections: Nearby Search, Experience, Store and Forum. Users sign up by registering an email address. Their profile can be linked to an existing DJI account. The app is open to anyone – from those curious about the technology without any previous experience to professional service providers.

Nearby Search shows social and professional users nearby, as well as flying hotspots and geo-tagged photos from SkyPixel.

The Nearby Search section is separated for social and professional users. The platform offers social users a way to connect, chat and meet. In a similar way, professional users can introduce their offer and services and connect with new clients. Users of professional services can write reviews directly on service providers’ profiles.

The Experience section guides users to nearby stores, and official DJI events. Other interactive features will be posted in this section.

The Store section takes users directly to DJI’s online store.

DJI’s official Forum is directly integrated in the DJI+ Discover app, making it easier for people to discuss, share best practices and get tips directly through their mobile phone.

The app can be downloaded for free on this link. The first version of the app is available in the U.S., the UK, Germany, Spain and Australia.

A short introduction video can be found here.

It warned us before..how is this one different? Would this be more aimed at the P4 series?

Ed,

My home has been marked as a hotspot, this cannot be a okay thing to do.

The marker is directly on my house, I can look around the my area and see other hotspots directly above peoples houses.

I would have liked the option to have been asked if I wanted my personal flying locations shared with the world.

Flite Test P4 Review


New video on the Flite Test web site shows testing the different flight modes. Pretty impressive. They actually did a pretty good review.

Agreed - we should be able to choose what we want to share.
It makes me think DJI have looked at the Litchi Mission Hub & thought, what can we do that is a) easy, & b) appears different so we're not seen as copying someone else.

I think they will have to change this quickly enough. Like Facebook has had to do, they are going to have to find the right balance and at least pretend that the user has some control over their data.

Well, on v1.7 my P3P was not so sensitive in detecting magnetic interference. With v1.8 it is more sensitive (i.e on the same spot where on v1.7 was OK, now it warns me), so they must have changed something (the "controller logic" change they mention on the release notes).

It did not crash however after testing, so it is OK for me

Ha! If only. A P4 is not in my future, college tuition for my oldest is though

Late adopter to the P3 so it will keep me happy for awhile. I'd like to pickup a spare Pro to go with my Advanced though. Waiting for that NJ seller to drop prices again

The idea to see what Apps are popular with users of P4-P3-Inspire I will post the results weekly and the final results on the 10 May 2016.

If you would like to contribute that would be great and the more that share the more useful and valid the survey will be.

I live on RCGroups so If any one would like to post it on other relevant Threads or Forums like Phantom Pilots It would be greatly appreciated.

PM if you have any questions / suggestions

Cheers - AviZ
Filled out. Thanks for the effort.

Just "tried" updating to 1.8.8 and my radio now says NO RC SIGNAL. I THINK it's because the software updates the RC first and then fails to communicate with the Phantom? It's just a thought after I pulled my hair out, pulled the SD card out and found 1.6.4 as the firmware on the card. Hopefully pushing the firmware directly to the card does something, else I'll have to figure out how to downgrade the RC in order to upgrade both of them at the same time???

Am I the only one with this issue?

The V1.6 controller FW is only compatible with v1.8 craft FW released yesterday

Update both and reboot then your should be back in action.

The manual and forums say "update both" as if that's up to me? I connected the Ipad air 2 with 2.7.1 DJI GO app. The system connected and I was told to update the firmware...so I did. I didn't ask if I wanted to do a partial update, it just started updating. The RC starting beeping so I figured that was updating and then it said to restart the system so I did. After that, no connection. If there was another step I missed, then it's my bad...but I can't think of what that could be?

Anyway, updating the firmware in the aircraft manually right now so fingers crossed. Also, I'm switching over to the android tablet so I can have 2.7.2 until I at least get the system working.

Upgrading via the sdcard fixed my problem. As I thought, and as it was pointed out to me, I only did a partial upgrade (RC only). While I have no idea how that happened, it was nice to know that simple download to the SD card fixed the problem. I'm not back to fully operational with my Nvidia Shield so I'm off to try things with my Ipad air 2 and then Iphone 6S inside my Zeiss VR goggles.
