The Best DJI Fly Compatible Devices and Troubleshooting

DJI Fly Compatible Devices

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 Mavic 3, DJI Air 2SDJI 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 imagining, 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 you will learn in this article:

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 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:

According to many users’ feedback, devices that run a 32-bit Android OS have compatibility issues, so for Android devices, they also need to:

2. Run a 64-bit Android OS

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

Android 64-bit OS Check

2) Use the AnTuTu Benchmark.

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 DeviceCPU, 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 FPV, DJI Mini 2, DJI Mimi SE, Mavic Air 2, and Mavic Mini Compatible iPhones and iPads


Most iPhones and iPads released in recent years are compatible. When it comes to the best phone or tablet for your Mavic drone, we recommend you choose the latest model.

DJI Fly App now only supports iOS 11 devices, if your iPhone or iPad can’t update, you can download the iOS 10 version here.


DJI Mavic 3, DJI Air 2S, 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 who 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, you will be able to see the install page.

If this doesn’t work, open up, and then search “DJI”, you will be able to see the DJI Fly App on the result page.

You can also go to to scan the QR code to download and install the app.

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, but 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 6.0.0 and there is a system update available, go for it.

If your phone or tablet runs the Android 6.0 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.

  1. 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 🙁

    Any suggestions?

  2. 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.

    1. 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.

  3. 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?

    1. Hi Mihlali, have you tried to download the app by scanning the QR code on If you can’t install the app, I guess Samsung A50 it’s no longer compatible.

    1. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. I have the DJI Air 2S, and am using an ipad mini 4. The “CPU overloaded” notification, is pretty constant, and command response is sluggish at times. I am thinking about getting the Samsung Tab S7+. Anyone using this? Any tips?

  9. iPhone 6 Plus not working properly after spring 2021 update (CPU overload).
    – No quickshots working 8 out of 10 times.
    – Losing connection frequently.

  10. 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.

  12. 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?

    1. 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.

    1. 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

  13. 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? :/
