Running the Field App on the DJI Crystal Sky
The FlyFreely Field App is compatible with the DJI Crystal Sky monitor. Using the Crystal Sky, Remote Pilots can make use of the full functionality of the app, including:
- Basic mission planning
- Mission management, including checklists
- Automatic logging of flight data within FlyFreely
Installing the Field App
The easiest way to install the app on your Crystal Sky (WiFi required) is by using the built in web browser. Paste the following link into the address bar to download the .APK file:
Once the file is downloaded, open the downloads folder and run the installation file.
The other way to install the app is to download the APK on another computer (using the link above). Once this has been downloaded, you can copy the file to an SD card, which can then be used to transfer the file to the Crystal Sky device.
Once you’ve copied the file to your Crystal Sky, simply run the file to start the installation.
Using the Field App
Planning Basic Missions
For quick missions that don’t require comprehensive mission planning, you can create the mission on the Field App. Click here for instructions.
Managing Pre-Planned Mission
For missions that have already been planned in the FlyFreely Office App, you can use the field app to guide you through your mission workflow, complete electronic checklists and log your flight time and battery usage.
FlyFreely supports automatic flight logging on the Crystal Sky. There are several ways to log your flights, depending on your specific needs and workflow. Please see this post for full instructions.
Note that if you don’t have an internet connection in the field (on the Crystal Sky device), you will need to sync your flight logs post-mission by connecting to WiFi with the field app open. This will automatically upload your flight logs to the FlyFreely server, making them available in your mission record.
