what is the difference between Maven and Maven Lite?
Maven is our app for iOS based devices, it was developed from 2017 till now and contains all features shown on this site.
Maven Lite is our Android version released in late December 2022 The app contains fewer features than its iOS counterpart but will be constantly updated in the coming months until it reaches full Maven functionality
Update March 2023: added VR mode
Here is the list of differences:
it might seem that Maven Lite is very limited, but still the virtual copilot allows you to perform these functions:
GPS Follow/Track ME
as mentioned earlier maven lite will be updated until deserving the name maven! This page will be updated as progress progresses!
Virtual Copilot 2.0! It can now focus on you, and therefore it can do:
Track Me (follow from side)
Orbit Me (while following)
Camera frame option (middle or bottom)
Automatic update of the Home Point
up to 60km/h (37mph)
We recommend watching this tutorial:
Other Virtual Copilot improvement:
Cable Cam Max Speed 15m/s (up from 10m/s)
Improved Automatic Yaw Smoothness
New feature for all supported drones
this are two Headless Mode, learn more down below
New option for the camera view
Fit to Width
Fit to Content
Grid! Now (finally) you can have a grid on the screen, turn it ON in the app settings
On screen Device GPS status
Improved AR Locator
now works in minimized video windows
now react correctly and adjusts to the optical zoom of the Mavic 2 Zoom
The update also include
Fix of minor bugs
This update includes 2 “old” intelligent flight modes, Course Lock and Home Lock, which DJI has removed from the new drones, and which we repurpose in our app following repeated requests. In the video that I link below it is explained what it is
Every professional drone pilot understands the importance of having good quality post-flight logs at their disposal at all times.
They serve not only as analytical data to understand the events that unfolded during flight, but also as historical record of flights in compliance with regulations and predictive maintenance of onboard components & batteries.
How to configure log synchronization with AirData UAV
Maven 3.6 is available on the app store! It brings improvements to all the functions of the app and introduces a whole new function: the virtual co-pilot! Watch the video to find out what it is and how to use it! Check also the complete change log after the video
a totally new feature to the app, especially useful for drones without native Point of Interest functionality (e.g. Mavic Mini) choose a point on the map, then ask the copilot to control the Yaw Rotation and the camera to look at that point while you are free to manually fly the drone.
The copilot has also more advanced skill such as “orbit” and “cable cam” , check the included manual.
The copilot will open doors to great shots even to inexperienced pilots!
-Waypoint Mission Improvement:
1)Mission trimnow you can choose which waypoint to start and end the mission from without deleting waypoints
2) Interval photosnow you can take photos at intervals between waypoints, based on time or distance
3)rewrote the virtual stick algorithm again for drones without native waypoint mission capabilities (mavic mini and mavic air 2) you will see a big improvement in smooths in speed and direction changes
– Faster head tracking speed option in VR mode
-Improvement of the user interfacenow camera controls can be minimized for a less cluttered interface
-Added device charging options for remotes that allow it
-Fixed a bug where the corner radius of the second waypoint could not be saved in some situations
