Top 11 Popular Smartphones of 2016 the fir the DJI Mavic RC

UPADTED 30-10-16 – Although not an officially supported device ( when fitting the RC ), the ipad Mini 3 ( and similar sized tablets ) do fit the RC holder. I have updated the list below to include devices of this size that will fit. You can see a demo if the iPad Mini 3 being fitted in this video:

You can see from the below video how secure the ipad Mini 3 is when in the RC holder.

UPDATED 07-10-16 – Due to popular demand I have added more phones that have proven to work with the DJI GO App and are within DJI’s recommended size limit for the Mavic RC.

These will fit and will work. They have been proven by users to function with the Phantom 4..

The A5 is mentioned by DJI here ( https://forum.dji.com/forum.php?mod=redirect&goto=findpost&ptid=64356&pid=500237&fromuid=368 ) for the DJO Go App and also fits in size wise so should be OK

Hi !
Uh oh… i have a Mavic on order and planned to use my S7 Edge to control it.
Whats the Deal with those reboots, do you have more Details ?
Does it mean i loose control and RTH kicks in or do i still have full control using the Mavic Transmitter, just the FPV feed is gone until the reboot is finished and DJI Go started again ?
How frequent do those reboots occur ?
Are there specific features / functions in DJI Go that trigger the reboot or is it more or less random ?

Thank you for sharing any additional info, i am a bit scared right now…

These guys in the DJI Forum are very convincing in saying that the problem is caused by the August S7 update. So the workaround could be a downgrade:

http://forum.dji.com/forum.php?mod=redirect&goto=findpost&ptid=62084&pid=491311&fromuid=426911

Others say that you should use DJI-GO in flight-mode (switching of WiFi / BT / Cell)…
ANd Others say its enough to switch the Location Services to just use “GOS only” which would be the easiest fix with least impact.

I did not do the August update so i hope the Mavic will work flawlessly when it arrives someday.
Lets hope.,

Mavic 13th October 2016 - 16:21

Hi , I see that oneplus 3 is compatible, would that mean that the oneplus 1 is also compatible.
thanks

Reply
Mavic 22nd October 2016 - 22:35

The oneplus 1 is 8.9mm thick. To fit the Mavic RC a smartphone needs to be no more than 8.5mm thick ( 8.6 does fit at a push ).

Hi,

does anyone have experience with

Samsung GALAXY Tab A SM-T280 (2016)

Does it fit without a mounting adapter?
Does it work with the DJI Go 4 app?
