-Added Radar Tool the tool displays how the remote control and the drone are oriented towards each other automatically appears on the screen when the drone is at least 20m away from the remote controller
-Added tool to display signal strength operation for Ocusync drones and WIFI drones
-Added Grid on screen you can now turn the grid on and off from the camera options
-Added label indicating the distance from the POI on the augmented reality tracker
-Augmented Reality Trackers are now available even with minimized camera view (full screen map)
-The update also includes minor bug fixes
Stay tuned… we are working on the next update.. VR!!
Maven Lite 1.1.1
-fixed an issue where the image was not displayed correctly on Air 2 and Air 2s drones -fixed an issue that could cause the application to crash
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!
###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 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 just got updated! Improvements in various aspects and parameters for missions to waypoints and more. The complete change log after this video on the update’s tasty feature, hey! also take a look on our updates road map
Maven 3.6.5 change log:
-Improved positioning accuracy in waypoint mission planning (and execution) :
now when you drag a waypoint or a POI on the screen a magnifying glass appears which shows the precise point under it
in the waypoint or POI details panel there is now a zoomed mini map showing the precise positioning
in the waypoint details you can now manually change the coordinates (latitude and longitude) of the waypoint
reduced the minimum distance between two consecutive waypoints to 0.5m (1.6ft) before was 3m (9.8ft)
minimum distance between waypoints now calculated in 3D (which means that now you can place a waypoint exactly above the previous one, changing only the altitude)
increased the accuracy of the drone positioning when it has to stop at a waypoint, now the position reached is considered valid only when the drone is less than 0.3m (1ft) from the coordinates of the waypoint, previously it was 1m (3ft)
-Increased the maximum speed that can be set in waypoint missions to 15m/s (before it was 10m/s) note: not all drones supported by the app can reach this speed during missions, check user manual for more details. -Reduced the minimum speed that can be set to 0m/s (0.1m/s for virtual stick mission) before the minimum was 1m/s.
-Increased maximum radius of curvature in waypoints to 500m (1650ft), up from 30m (100ft).
-Enables the ability to manually rotate (yaw) the drone during missions with drones that perform virtual stick missions (mavic mini and air 2) (it was already possible with other drones).
-Added full support to the spark drone
-Eliminated the English manuals inside the app, they are now available online (link in the manuals section of the app)
-Added link to manuals in Serbian language (thanks Milan for the translation)
-Fixed an issue that VPG could not work properly in VR mode
-Fixed an issue that could prevent some missions from loading correctly in the drone
more actions on the waypoint, this also means more types of actions and more flexibility
more points of interest, the number of POIs is now limited to 3 for each mission will be increased significantly
Import missions from Litchi, the supported format will be CVS which can be exported from the Litchi mission HUB.
create mission by actually flying the drone, you can fly the drone and save waypoints (with all the parameters of rotation (yaw) and inclination of the camera)
follow me, this much requested feature will be added as a new virtual coopilot capability
note: the road map is not law, and may be subject to change at any time at our discretion. the timing for the completion of scheduled updates is also variable based on many parameters, we want to keep the level of quality and stability of the app high so we will take the necessary time.
this morning this message appeared on the DJI developer portal, and it doesn’t sound good ..
on the one hand we are reassured that we can continue to update our apps, we have a very interesting updates roadmap with many new features for Maven and we would be really sorry to have to abandon it
on the other hand we are a little worried about the support for the new drones, we obviously think of the mini 2 or the brand new DJI FPV where according to DJI the SDK will no longer be updated for iOS until they solve the question with Apple
We have a lot of work to do to bring Maven to android, and since the problem is not related to that platform, surely this message brings priority (which we need) to that work.
I am pretty sure that two big companies like Apple and DJI will work to resolve the situation in the common interest as soon as possible 🤞, we will keep our attention on the matter.
