One of the leading camera drone makers, the China-based DJI, recently released its first Windows Phone app. The DJI Vision app has been created specifically for owners of the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ quadcopter so they can take pictures remotely with its on-board camera.
Here's a look at the app's features:
- PHANTOM 2 VISION+ -- Your Flying Camera; Long Flight Times; Extremely Stable Flying; More Convenient User Experience
- EXCEPTIONAL FLIGHT EXPERIENCE - Long Wi-Fi Connection Range with Wi-Fi Range Extender (300M); Real-Time Flight Parameters On Screen Display (OSD); Location Locked on Radar
- HIGH PERFORMANCE CAMERA - 14MP Still Photos, 1080p30/60i Full HD Video; Real-Time Camera Preview on Mobile Devices; Remote Camera Operation Controlled by Mobile Devices
- SHARING - Share Your Moments With Your Friends
The DJI Vision app will apparently only work with the company's Phantom 2 Vision+ quadcopter. There's no word if the app will be updated to include support for its other camera drones.
Thanks to Peter for the tip!

The app is ugly
Finally! I've been waiting for this for ages!
This is a good step forward. It is missing some features, haven't found how to tilt the camera yet and ground station isn't there but I am glad to see there is finally interest in windows development.
Yeah! Hopefully they follow suit for the rest of their products!
That's cool , falling in line with IOT and smart devices support.
NIce to see DJI supporting windows phone, this makes DJI the favourite drone manufacturer for windows phone users as other companies have not yet launched a windows phone app.
Still thinking about buying one. It's nice to see that they've made at least a simple app for WP. Hopefully this expands with W10 where it'll be great to have a HUD/POV using a 7"/8" tablet.
I hope they continue with the Windows apps and launch the djipilot app for the Phantom 3. Android version has terrible video lag and crashes periodically, not ideal when 2km away from home. Hopefully with a less 'processor and resource' hungry operating system this won't happen. C'mon dji, do us all a favour.
I just went out for a quick flight with it. I did lose video at one point, but got it back after ~10 seconds. As someone else said, there is no tilt for the camera in the app, so those without the v3.0 controller are stuck.
This is a great start but is it too much to ask for a Tablet version? I have the HP Stream 7 which is full 8.1 and would like to use it as my FPV device.
