This post lists the DJI Fly app compatible devices and tells you how to check the compatibility of your phones or tablets, and helps you to choose the right one for your drone.
One of the most important things about flying your DJI Mini 3 Pro, DJI Mavic 3, DJI Air 2S, DJI Mini 2, DJI Mini SE, Mavic Air 2, or Mavic Mini is to make sure the smartphone or tablet you use is compatible with the DJI Fly App.
It not only ensures a better flying experience but will also save you from a possible drone crash or fly away, especially for beginner pilots. Just imagine, if your drone is miles away, suddenly the DJI Fly App freezes or quits unexpectedly, you might be getting a little bit of panic.
The DJI FPV drone also uses the DJI Fly app, though you don’t need the app to fly it, you still need to use it to activate the aircraft and the FPV Goggles before flying.

What phones and tablets are compatible with DJI Fly app?
How to know if my device is compatible
The easiest way is to check this DJI Fly Phone and Tablet compatibility list (DJI Fly works with DJI Mini 3 Pro, DJI Mavic 3, DJI Air 2S, DJI FPV, DJI Mini 2, Mavic Air 2, and Mavic Mini). All the phones and tablets in it are tested by both DJI and users. If so, you can set your mind at rest.
If not, you will need to make sure your phone or tablet:
1. Meets the system requirements of the DJI App. Here are the DJI Fly system requirements:
- iOS: Requires iOS 11.0 or above. (If your device can’t be updated to iOS 11, click here to download the DJI Fly iOS 10 version)
- Android: Requires Android 7.0 or above.
According to many users’ feedback, devices that run a 32-bit Android OS have compatibility issues, so Android devices also need to:
How to check if your Android device is 64-bit or 32-bit? There are two ways to do this:
1) Use the 64Bit Checker
3. Comes with ARM CPUs
If you follow the guide on how to check the Android OS, you will have already installed either the 64-Bit Checker or the AnTuTu Benchmark app.
If you go with the 64 Bit Checker, you can easily find the CPU info on the screen. For those who use the AnTuTu, just go to My Device > CPU, and you will see the information about your device’s CPU Architecture. The info needs to be written “ARM“.
Then you can download the DJI Fly App and have a try. Normally, you won’t have any issues, but you’d better keep your DJI Air 2S, DJI Mini SE, DJI Mini 2, Mavic Air 2, or Mavic Mini in the eyesight and fly it in an open area because users do have problems with phones that meet the App’s requirements.
If your phone or device doesn’t fall into the compatibility list or meet the system requirements, you will need to get a new one. Just choose one from the compatibility list according to your brand preference and budget.
DJI Fly Compatible Phones and Tablets
Please note that phones or tablets on the list are tested by both DJI and pilots. The ones in italic are tested by users, others are tested by DJI.
If you are flying your drone with an iPad or a Tablet, you will need to use a drone tablet holder.

DJI Mavic 3, DJI Air 2S, DJI Mini 3, DJI Mini 2, DJI Mini SE, Mavic Air 2, and Mavic Mini Compatible Android Phones and Tablets
Please note that:
1. There are too many different models of Android phones and tablets in the market, so the Android compatibility issue is much more complicated. If you find devices in the list that do not work, please let us know the details of the device’s specs.
2. DJI won’t test every single qualified phone in the market, it only tests those that have a relatively larger market share. This list includes devices that are tested by both DJI and drone pilots. The ones in italic are from users’ feedback, they should be no problem, but I still recommend you test it yourself.
3. The firmware released on Jan 14th, 2021 has solved the Android 10 compatibility issue.

Troubleshooting: DJI Fly Installation and Connection Issues
After I did some research on FB Mavic Mini groups and other drone forums, I found that a lot of Android users are experiencing compatibility issues because not every single Android phone or tablet is on DJI’s compatibility list.
Here are the most typical problems:
1. What is the best tablet for DJI Mavic 3, DJI Air 2S, DJI FPV, DJI Mini 2, DJI Mimi SE, Mavic Air 2, and Mavic Mini?
Currently, the iPad Mini 5 is considered to be the best tablet for DJI Mavic drones based on its price, compatibility, and size.
2. What tablets work with the DJI Fly app?
When it comes to DJI Fly compatible tablets, it’s a bit complicated as there are so many Android models out there. If you are looking for a new tablet to fly your drone, then just follow DJI’s recommend list. If you’ve already got a tablet, you will need to make sure it meets the system requirements.
3. What are the best DJI Fly settings for Mavic Air 2 and Mavic Mini?
DJI Fly is a new app that can only be used with Mavic Air 2 and Mavic Mini currently, Getting to know the new app thoroughly before flying is very important for safety and capturing better footage and photos. Here is a guide to DJI Fly’s in-depth review and best settings for Mavic Air 2 and Mavic Mini.
4. The App is not on the Google Play Store on your device.
Open your browser, and go to dji.com/fly to scan the QR code to download and install the app. If you have a problem installing the DJI Fly app, this post will help you out.
5. You failed to install DJI Fly or the app just doesn’t open after installing successfully.
When you are on the DJI Fly App page, you get a popup saying “This app is not compatible with your device“. First, go check your Android OS version: Settings > About Device > Android Version (this may vary according to different smartphone brands). If your device’s OS is under 7.0.0 and there is a system update available, go for it.
If your phone or tablet runs the Android 7.0 or above system but you still can’t install or launch the App, you will need to check your Android and CPU Architecture.
6. You have no problem launching the app but can’t connect the aircraft with the remote controller
- Try with another USB cable or remove and insert the USB cable again. It is recommended to use the original USB cable. If the original one is too short and you have to buy a new one, make sure it’s fully compatible.
- For Android devices, check whether the “USB debugging” is turned on. Then go to settings > Applications > Application manager, and select DJI Fly. Click “Set as default” and “Clear defaults”. Then reconnect the mobile device and launch DJI Fly.
- Update the firmware and the DJI Fly app. Do you have the latest version of DJI Fly? Have you updated the firmware? Make sure that you keep your firmware and DJI Fly up-to-date.

The Motorola One 5G Ace is fully compatible with DJI Fly. I’ve had the phone for about two months and just bought a DJI Mini 2 a week ago and it works flawlessly.
LG g8s ThinQ works with Mini 2 and the DJI Fly app.
Doesnt work with DJI Mini 2: Lenovo Tab M7 17,78 cm (7″ , 1024×600, WSVGA, WideView, Touch) Tablet-PC (MediaTek MT8166, 2GB RAM, 32GB eMCP, WLAN, Android 11 Go) (model ZA8C0036SE)
Doesnt work with DJI Mini 2: Pritom P7 plus, 7″, Android 11, FHD1920 x 1200 IPS, Android WLAN tablet, Quad Core tablet, 2 GB RAM 32 GB ROM
I use a pixel 3a with my mini 2 and it works fine.
LG Q6 incompatible with dji fly
Ho un piccolo Umidigi A3 2GB di RAM 16 Gb di memoria interna. ( che usavo solo per telefonare )
E possibile volare registrare video e foto senza problemi
Basta non usare le ultime app ( 1.5.4 ) che sono molto piu’ pesanti delle prime ( video a scatti sul telefono disconnessioni della app durante il volo
e l’ impossibilita’ di utilizzare le funzioni QUICKSHOT.
Penso che presto passero’ ad un telefono piu’ performante.
Hi! Yesterday I bought Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro (with 6 GB of RAM). It is fully compatible with the latest version of DJI FLY! I downloaded that app from the DJI’s website, and after installation everything works perfectly! I can fly the Mini 2 drone without any problems, app hangs etc. 🙂
Previously, I used the old Lenovo K6 Note (K53a48) smartphone with 3GB of RAM. It’s also compatible, the DJI FLY app worked fine, I could fly the drone, but in the phone itself the battery was draining quickly, so I had to replace that smartphone.
I can’t find this app in the Play Store anymore, the best way to download it is to go directly to the DJI website.
PS. Meanwhile, the old Samsung J5 can be added to the list of incompatible phones, it only has 2GB of RAM and 32-bit Android.
The Cricket Dream works. Had to upgrade do to Cricket and AT&T going to 4g and above. I checked the processor specs before purchasing and everything checked out. Connects and flies just fine. Big screen and only $99.
please has anyone got any idea if INFINIX hot note 10 has compatibility issues.??
ive been trying to connect my RC to my infinix hote note 10 bbut not working.!
please i need assistance please … !!!!!
Anyone know if Sony pro I is compatible
Does the Galaxy A20s work?
I can’t seem to find any information online.
It’s a (64-bit ARMv8-A)
Has anybody tried the Moto G30? Just recently bought and doesn’t seem to be compatible
Hi, would anyone know if Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is compatible? I can’t see it on any list. Thanks.
I was using Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra till last weekend and it was working perfectly. Installed the latest update today (28 Nov 21) and live feed is not working anymore.
I can fly through the app and it records video and photos but wouldn’t show live feed 🙁
Has anybody tried the Samsung Galaxy S6 Lite with Air 2S?
DJI (as usual with their Customer Service) doesn´t answer.
Or even Lenovo Tab P11?
How can this people (DJI) say “you should test it for compatibility”??? Meaning “buy it and try it” once and again until you find one without issues?? SO unprofessional.
who has the money to keep buying phones didn’t know you need another phone to fly it wow . just want to fly it . scam you should explane everything you need to fly it. before you buy it clearly .or build there own device to fly it.
They do, it’s called the smart controller. $1,000.00 or so!
My thoughts exactly.
The problem is if they did they would sell less. It’s shows how inconsiderate and greedy DJI is. They know people will not likely return it. On top of that I called their tech support and they would only tell me “buy an ios phone “most of those work”
Most! really you call that support I call it at best jock itch!
Samsung Galaxy s6 Lite should work fine with the DJI Fly app. It is 64-bit which is needed for the app to work.
That’s pretty close to the same stupid answer Tech Support gave me.
Exactly! Dumbest thing to say. Shows there mentally and their level of give a ……..!
Believe me. IF, they answer this is the answer I got! “Buy an ioS phone MOST of them work! Really? Are you sh.. me…
HI, will my google pixel 3 phone work, with the Mavic mini
Hi Pat, you can follow the guide to check if it meets the requirements.
Recently bought DJI Mavic Air 2. I am having some trouble installing the DJI fly app on my Samsung A50. The phone should be compatible but its not. I’ve tried almost everything to fix the problem but no luck. Any advice?
Hi Mihlali, have you tried to download the app by scanning the QR code on dji.com? If you can’t install the app, I guess Samsung A50 it’s no longer compatible.
I used an A50 until yesterday when I upgraded my Phone. I had to do to the DJI website to download it. Just search DJI Fly app download. It does not show up on the play store.
How about the xiaomi poco 3? It doesnt appear as compatible or incompatible.
Hi Antoine, the list is not all-inclusive cz there are too many new phones. You need to check to see if it meets the requirements.
I am currently using my Mi 11 Lite 5G to fly the Mavic mini and it works well. So this phone is also compatible. Just don’t mistake it with the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G, it has a s*%t chipset.
Hi guys, have a Magic Air 2S. Will it work with a Samsung galaxy A72?
Hola, alguien a probado el huawei mate 20 normal, sabe si funciona con la aplicación.???
Huawei MATE 9 LITE, NO FUNCIONA
I am unable to install the DJI Fly App on my Andriod Samsung Note 8. The device/phone is listed in the list of compatible phones, and the device does have a 64-bit OS … but I keep getting the “App not installed” error. Any advice or guidance on how to get the app installed? This is super frustrating!
Hi Tom, maybe you can try to download the app from DJI.com to see if it works for you.
Xiaomi Note 10 Lite – does it work?
I just ordered dji mini2 today and will arrive tomorrow. Kinda disappointed to know that there are very few supported phones.
I have had 20 flights using Samsung A42 with no problems
I have a Motorola G9 play and used this with my mini 2 which was working all fine. During flight I lost all connection which came back a few seconds later. Does anyone else experience this issue with this model phone? Can DJI run an update so this does not happen please?
Also I have just purchased the Osmo 3. My Motorola seems to be working fine apart from the zoom. Any suggestions or is this an android fail. Can DJI recommend or run an update for this as well?
Many thanks in advance for your help

Been flying air 2s with LG V35 for a few weeks. No issues that I can tell so far.
Huawei P20 lite INCOMPATIBLE. Why P30 lite and P10lite is compatible?
I use the DJI Fly app with my Samsung A51 (SM-A515F) running Android 11, without any sort of issues. It should be added to the compatibility list.
I just bought an ONN Tablet 8″ Gen 2 from Walmart for $70. I had to download the Fly app from DJI’s site as it’s not in the play store, but I just did my first test flight with my Mavic Air 2, and everything worked well! I just need to get the tablet adapter for the remote now.
Been flying my mavic mini with Pixel 5 for over a year with DJI Fly 1.2.1. Now having problems connecting to an Air 2s with the new controller. I see that there is a newer version of the app but can’t seem to get the update. The pixel 5 is not on either the don’t fly list or supported list. What do you know?
Hi Frank, the Pixel 5 should work with DJI Air 2S. Did you get any error messages when connecting to your new controller? Maybe it’s not the app’s problem.
Redmi note 4 is compatible with Air2s but Mi a2 Lite is incompatible.
Hi Richard, sounds promising. The Redme note 4 is my regular phone and so far I did not manage to have it connected. The fly app does not recognize the usb-connected remote control of my new mini 2 drone. Did you change any settings such as USB debugging? Thx
Hello 2 everybody.
I have Xiaomi note 8 T. I want to ask you that can I use this phone with Mini 2? Can anybody help me please about this question? :/

Hi All, just carried out my maiden flight..Mini 2 and Motorola g30. Only a manual take off to about 30ft run through all directional controls then a manual landing all with no drama so at this point Motorola g30 is a yes.
Hi Paul, I assume you flew a lot more with the drone since August? Any issues since? I have a Moto G30 and want to buy but not sure if it will work?
Had an galaxy s7 flying mini 2 with no problems and connected super fast. Changed phone to a galaxy a52g. Got it connected flew great. Didn’t fly for a couple weeks, went to connected and would for nothing. Got s7 and connected. The galaxy a52g 5g is not on or off compatibility list…Don’t understand it. Need help
Having video issues with iPad Pro 10.5″ (resolution 2224 x 1668) and new Mini 2 – won’t show live view, just a black screen behind the controls, won’t show recorded video or images from drone memory (image breaks up and shows mainly green background) but downloaded video and images are fine. iPad Pro 10.5″ is in the compatible list, but I’ve been round the loop several times with official support, with no fixes, only ‘connection issues’ suggested. Works great with iPad 6 and just about with iPhone SE. Impulse buy – should have done my due diligence! And really don’t want to spend any more cash on new phone/tablet etc… Anybody got any comments?
Samsung Tab A SM-T550.. incompatible unfortunately…. DJI Fly app says so… bummer.
