Here’s how you can get ActiveTrack on the DJI Mavic Mini with the Litchi Beta and Litchi Magic Leash apps. As you probably know the DJI Mavic Mini lacks DJI’s ActiveTrack, most likely because the drone doesn’t have any obstacle avoidance sensors and DJI wants to keep you from losing the aircraft, but with the Litchi Beta and Litchi Magic Leash apps for Google’s Android platform you can work around this and get the shots you want.

We reached out to Litchi one month ago, to get an update on when the app might become available for the DJI Mavic Mini and Mavic Air 2, and here’s their response:
Mavic mini support is in beta: http://flylitchi.com/beta
DJI has said they will add support for the Mavic Air 2 in a future SDK update. This update is required for Litchi to support this drone. At the moment we don’t have more details on when the update will be released and/or which feature will be supported.
Unfortunately, we do not have a firm date on when Litchi for the Mavic Mini will come out of beta testing as of yet, although Litchi did say the following:
Sorry we don’t know the release date yet, hopefully within next few weeks.
