Maven 3.7 – Import Litchi

Maven has been updated again! Here is version 3.7! We have included everything we set out in our roadmap plus a few other little goodies that make the app even more useful and still easy to use

The main goal of the update is the import of waypoint missions exported from the “Litchi mission HUB”. To achieve this we had to improve several aspects of the app, such as managing more POIs and a more flexible management of actions in waypoints. The complete change log after the video

  • More Point Of Interest
    • now you can define up to 99 POIs in each mission (up from 3)
    • now you can name the POIs
  • More Actions
    • now you can define up to 15 actions in each waypoint with new types of actions such as yaw rotations, gimbal tilt, pause.
    • you can also define an exclusive light action! (light painting anyone?)
    • actions have some limitations, check the user manual for more details
  • Import Mission
    • now you can import Mission from Litchi Mission HUB in CVS format, now you can fly your Litchi missions with your mavic Mini and Air 2
    • will be soon be possible to import more file format like GPX or KML
  • Camera Exposure
    • added full camera control for the camera in the waypoint mission view
    • fixed the problem that the camera can be reset to automatic on drone connection
    • added full camera control (manual iso and shutter) for the mavic mini (was already for all other supported drones)
  • Search for places
    • added a handy location search tool in the waypoint planner (stop panning back and forth to search for the place to create a mission)
    • You can search for anything from addresses to places of interest
  • Bug fixes and improvements
    • Mavic mini takes two photos when using the shutter button on the remote control once – solved
    • In waypoint planner the second waypoint does not inherit the corner radius from the first waypoint – solved
    • Mission list performance has improved, now you can smoothly scroll through hundreds of missions
    • More heading options
    • Auxiliary Light control in App Settings
    • Smoother manual yaw in Cable Cam mode

Update Road Map

The list of functions to add to the app seems to never end.
these are the things we will add to the app in the near future:

  • Height of Waypoints Relative to the ground
  • Define Missions Flying the Drone to save Waypoints
  • Follow me function

We will probably make smaller and more frequent updates where we will add, in no particular order, the functions described above plus more. Follow us on social networks for previews !!

  1. Dear friends, congratulations on your great Maven application. I have a Macbook AIR with an M1 processor and the version prior to the latter (3.7) was compatible on Mac M1. Could you solve this little matter? Thanks.

  2. Wow! This update will be a game changer – when do you you expect the ‘above ground’ altitude setting to be ready? I have already downloaded 3.7 which is fantastic… πŸ˜ŽπŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦
