Of course you had to know it was coming if you follow me on twitter. As soon as I got a drone you should know that one of two things is inevitable:
1. I'd almost immediately crash it.
2. I'm going to pull apart the apps to fly it.
Well, so far so good on #1, but it's time for #2!
I'm starting off with the DJIFly application on iOS: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/dji-fly/id1479649251
I recently picked up a Mavic Mini to play around with because my colleagues and friends keep telling me to "get a hobby" and "get away from the desk." Fair. So I bought a drone that forces me outside to play with it. (Plus I was already told I'm not allowed to chase the dog around the house, sadly)
Test environment: iPhone on iOS 13.6 running the latest version of DJI Fly. I'll be honest, I skipped the quick image on this one and didn't make a iTunes-style backup. I went straight to the full file system acquisition on this one. I have some more app research coming up for some other iOS apps so when I get around to that I'll be sure to take a quick image and compare. The good news is that basically you don't even NEED a quick image OR a full filesystem image. See the last note at the bottom for why.
Let's dig in!
