DJI Mini3 Pro - Litchi Error Code 180

I just purchased this to use with Mini 3 pro (app version 1.9.4) Aircraft Firmware 01.00.0450 - RC Firmware 04.14.0400 - I have Android App Litchi Version v4.26.2-g and It wont take off.

How do I fix this or roll back to another version? or is it the Firmware on the Mini 3 pro

Any insight or help appreciated or how do I get refund at this point?


DJI has not released the SDK for the Mini 3 Pro. Therefor, Litchi (nor any other 3rd party developer) can support it at this time. DJI have said that the SDK for the Mini 3 Pro is scheduled to be released 2nd quarter 2023.

So I guess I can get refund until this is fixed since it is worthless for me to own and I cannot use at this time?

You should always do your research before buying anything (unless you have enough money to throw away). I had created this “sticky” a while back to help people like you with either the Mavic 3 or the Mini 3 Pro:

As far as a refund goes, I don’t know. You would have to contact Litchi directly and plead your case.


Maybe update your google play product page - that info is not of google play area at all!!!


Wow great company policy - well enjoy the $25 that pays you to be this way to people

Its on the Litchi Help website. What it supports and doesnt support

Where is “Google Play product page” you are referring to? Can you provide a URL? I’m not sure where to see what you are looking at.

Put text in caps? Why? Do you respond better to someone yelling at you? I don’t.

I don’t work for Litchi. I am here to help people by answering questions and creating documents to help people make informed decisions. Of course, that also requires some effort on your part too – to actually read those documents.


Here’s a screenshot from the google play product page which you OBVIOUSLY DID NOT READ at all…


I committed precisely the same error as the OP here, in that I ordered a Mini 3 the instant DJI announced that an SDK release for the Mini 3 and Mini 3 Pro was imminent. At the time I simply refused to consider the possibility that beyond-RC signal range flights might NOT be possible even if Litchi gained access to the Mini 3 and Mini 3 Pro SDK.

Come to find out the SDK that DJI will release for the Mini 3 and Mini 3 Pro will NOT allow the drone to complete waypoint missions once signal connectivity between the RC controller and the drone is interrupted. I had been seduced by that phenomenal 45-minute flight battery duration for the Mini 3, and therefore, in full wishful thinking mode, I hurriedly placed an order for the Mini 3 due to my own unfounded supposition that Litchi would work beyond signal range with the Mini 3 just as it does with DJI’s older drones listed above by another reader.

If the OP has deep pockets whereby cost is no object I would like to suggest an option worthy of consideration for the “let them eat cake” demographic, which would entail contacting DJI and offering to TRADE IN that Mini 3 Pro for a Mavic 3 costing twice as much, BECAUSE the Mavic 3 is now confirmed to be capable of completing waypoint missions despite RC signal loss, using DJI Flly and not Litchi.

So, OP, I sayeth verily unto thee that if thine hath $1,500 burning a hole in thine pocket, then tarry not and buy a Mavic 3 now, without delay. Alternatively, if the OP is a mere mortal for whom the price tag does matter, he could consider selling the Mini 3 Pro as a nearly new offering, in order to raise the $700 that would cover the cost of the superb Mavic 2 Pro in lightly used condition.
