###24/12/2022 update Maven Lite is now available for download on Google Play
The application is in a beta stage and we are working to reach the Play Store as soon as possible.
At launch the application will have very limited functions and will then be completed with subsequent updates
The android app will be called “Maven Lite” until it is fully functional of its iOS counterpart
The first feature available at launch will be the “virtual co-pilot” and will have all the capabilities of the iOS version including, follow me, orbit me, and cable cam
The variety of android devices is so high that we can’t be sure it works on every device, and we can’t test them all, so to avoid selling you an application that might not work we decided that you can download and try the application for free.
It will be impossible to record videos from the drone while using the virtual co-pilot. Video recording will be unlocked via an in app purchase.
This is one of the last tests:
IMPORTANT, currently Maven for Android is NOT available for download on any store or site. Until its availability is announced on this page, any “APK” you find on the internet is in all probability a scam
### UPDATE ###
Maven Lite is now available for download on Google Play here is the link:
This update is focused on supporting new drones -DJI Mini 2 -DJI Air 2S -DJI Mini SE
All functions of the app are available with the new drones
Added on-screen Exposure Lock Button
Small bug fix and performance improvements
For sure this is the most anticipated update ever, Mini 2 owners are so many! and this puts us in front of a huge amount of new potential customers that we already welcome.
We are really excited about this update but it doesn’t stop us from working on future developments right now.
I invite all new customers to watch this video to get a small preview of the potential of the app, and then visit the tutorial section of the site.
If you are new to Maven, I inform you that there is a group on FB where to discuss, exchange information and useful tricks on how to use Maven or simply share your own videos made with Maven. https://www.facebook.com/groups/938321600163115/
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
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
