As I understand, the DJI mini 3 pro is not supported to various external software because the DJI mini 3 pro has not opened for that function?
When will we be able to use software like Map Pilot pro or dronedeploy etc. with the DJI mini 3 pro.

There's no ETA for the SDK to be released,   in fact its not clear if they will release it at all,   they have already dropped SDK support for IOS and from their SDK site it says -

"Currently, MSDK V5 only supports the M30 series, M300RTK and Mavic 3 enterprise series. It will support future products later but no old products."

Hello, there.  Because the surveying and mapping function has high requirements for the aircraft’s positioning system and camera lens. Currently, DJI  Mavic series drones cannot support such a professional function. If you has professional mapping requirements, We recommend purchase a DJI Enterprise product. Thanks for your understanding.

Thanks for the answer

But It was a very disappointing message. After all, I have already bought a DJI Mini 3 pro and it is certainly not cheap, so you might think that all functions will be unlocked.
It is now certain that my next drone purchase will be much more considered. And of course other models than DJI are also included in the considerations.
But don't worry it will be years before I can afford to buy the next one. Therefore, it is also very disappointing that this drone does not have the functions needed for it to be used for anything other than flying up and down.
But again, thanks for the answer, even if it wasn't what I had hoped for.

If you fly manually and take the shots with plenty of overlaps dronedeploy can still process them.  Here’s an example of drone deploy with mini 3 making 3d model.

Hello Wanda, please add my name to the list requesting this mapping ability. I could see not supporting it if the drone was a cheap drone, but it’s not. So please add me for consideration to that feature being developed. Surely a good design to keep loyal customers.

In the list, you'll find multiple Mavic series drones.
These Mavic series drones support the surveying and mapping function, otherwise they would not be compatible with Map pilot pro.
Why would these drones support the surveying an mapping function, but not the Mini 3 Pro?

Ive been mapping with the Mavic series for years now. I hope you all release the ability to use other softwares with the Mavic mini 3 so we can continue to do so. I am needing a new unit to map but I dont know what to do now. I might have to go elsewhere to find what I need if DJI doesnt allow mapping with mavics anymore. Which is very disappointing because I love DJI products

But this can be done with the mini 2, so why can I not do this with the mini 3 pro?

It is meant to be a superior drone but it has limitations exceeded by it's predecessor...it's a backward step

Does this mean that the SDK is coming or not? We have seen conflicting responses in these forums. The SDK would be incredibly helpful, and certainly expected on a "Pro" product.

Thanks for your understanding.

While you could hide behind this argument for the Mavic Mini 3 Pro, (and apologies to go slightly off topic) it is a fact that the Mavic 3 Pro does not offer native mapping support while the Mavic 3 Enterprise does.

This is purely a software limitation as the hardware of these two drones is virtually the same. It is a shame that DJI is closing off consumer drones to mapping features and stopped releasing SDKs to third parties. DJI has even gone so far as to remove consumer features from the Enterprise drone in case of the Mavic 3 (4K 60 fps video, hyper lapse, ...). So if you buy the more expensive drone, you don't have all consumer features. If you want both feature sets, you need to buy two <1K drones which are exactly the same!

Also, I do appreciate your time and effort to respond on these forums but I am very curious to hear which requirements the Mini 3 Pro lacks that the Mavic 3 Pro/Enterprise have and would be necessary to offer mapping support.

The DJI Mini 3 Pro is a small drone with a high-quality camera that can capture stunning aerial footage. Mapping with the DJI Mini 3 Pro is possible, but it requires additional software and tools to turn the images captured by the drone into accurate maps and models.

Here are the steps to follow to map with the DJI Mini 3 Pro:

Plan your flight: Determine the area you want to map and plan your flight accordingly. Choose a flight path that covers the entire area and ensures that the drone captures images with adequate overlap.

Set up your drone: Before flying, ensure that the drone's firmware is updated and that the camera is set to capture images in the correct format and resolution.

Fly the drone: Fly the drone along the predetermined flight path, making sure to capture enough images to cover the entire area. Take care to fly the drone at a consistent altitude and speed to ensure accurate results.

Process the images: Once you have captured the images, you need to process them using mapping software. There are several mapping software options available, such as Pix4D, DroneDeploy, and Agisoft Metashape. These software packages use photogrammetry techniques to turn the drone images into 3D models and maps.

Analyze and interpret the results: After processing the images, you can analyze the maps and models generated by the software to gain insights into the area you mapped. You can use the maps to identify land features, measure distances and volumes, and even detect changes over time.

In summary, mapping with the DJI Mini 3 Pro is possible, but it requires additional software and tools. Follow the above steps to map with your DJI Mini 3 Pro and gain valuable insights into the area you mapped.

DJI has released their MSDK 5.3.0 which adds support for the Mini 3 Pro. How long do we think it would take to add in support?  https://developer.dji.com/doc/mobile-sdk-tutorial/en/

So I bought the Mini 3 Pro advertised as an advanced drone, the Mini 2 is advertised as an entry level drone, yet the mini 2 is available to use on other apps but still even though the SDK has been released this is not possible on the Mini pro 3 yet?

Any ideas on how long this will be?

from a commercial point of view this seems nuts as everything in the advert for the drone on DJI points towards it being advanced just like the enterprise range which is over 5x higher in price.

dont get me wrong if the business makes enough money that will be my next purchase and probably the same for many other people but for simple 3D mapping and imaging should have been in already.

Agree the SDK release is needed. It is the only thing that has kept me from upgrading my mini 2 to a mini 3 pro, since the LICHTI app is a must have companion app from my perspective. I am not sure how you market a "new and improved" version of something with decreased functionality and higher price. Maybe DJI has a reason not to release the SDK and if they made that known, the customer base would find this decision to be a bit more rational. Until then, my credit card stays in my (e-) wallet.
