Does anyone know how to install Drone Deploy on the DJI Crystalsky? i just got one this week and trying to figure it all out?
@joeyb106 Third party apps do not work with the Crystalsky gear. There is no supported way to install DroneDeploy with Crystalsky.
Hey guys, anyone testing Drone Depoly on the Crystal Sky yet? Any results?Thanks!
DroneDeploy doesn't yet work on the Crystal Sky because it does not come installed with google play or google play services.
Hey Chase! Thanks for responding. Check out this video for the crystalsky google play workaround...
I have played around with ways to get google play services installed. It's pretty hacky so we haven't suggested this as a solution yet.
Are there any plans to make DD compatible with Crystalsky?
never thought about this, now you have asked this and now i'm wondering the same. would appreciate some answers.
Hi @Roger_Neeb and @Pudel1986,
At this time we do not have any plans to support DJI CrystalSky at this time as they currently do not support the Google Play Services SDK.
Thanks for the reply Christina. Just seems like a big missed opportunity on both DJI and DD's part. I cancelled my order on a new CrystalSky when I found out that DD was not an app included in the 20 apps allowed. So both DJI lost money from me and DD lost money as I was just about to open an account and now I won't unless it becomes available on CS. I'm sure I'm not the only drone pilot waiting to pull the trigger on both a Crystalsky monitor and Drone Deploy membership until this is fixed.
Sorry to hear this but we can't support hardware where we can't guarantee an ideal experience on for our users. Maybe things will change down the line but we don't have any other news or updates to share at this time.
Thanks Christina. I just think it would be worth DD's time to sit down with DJI and develop an app specifically for the Crystalsky. The performance of the CS in bright conditions blows any tablet or phone away. Especially when dealing with detailed mapping I would think DD would want it's app to be available on the best platform as well.
