What a disappointment from DJI. They announced 3 days ago they will support the Mini 3 SDK but not the Mavic 3. THIS IS RIDICULOUS DJI !!!!This makes me really angry and upset after paying $5000 for a drone that can not even do a 360 pano photo correctly and DJI promises SDK for it.

And moderators, please, do not delete this post. We deserve respect as consumers and everybody needs to know how DJI is playing with us.




https://sdk-forum.dji.net/hc/en- ... mer-level-aircraft-

The MSDK is gradually prioritising to the enterprise level aircraft, the priority level of product from high to low is enterprise level aircraft > consumer level aircraft > hanheld product.
  • We will support Mini 3 Pro and Mini 3 on earily Q2, 2023 in MSDK v5.3.0.
  • There is no plan to support Mavic 3, Mavic 3 Cine and Mavic 3 Classic currently.
  • There is no plan to support DJI Avata currently.

Maybe they are not done yet with all the features and fixes they want to do.
They are waiting first to finish with the software and after giving SDK for the Mavic 3

I second Zeus on this this. Why is the Mini drones getting the SDK when our more expensive drones do not. Give the Mavic 3 the SDK DJI - Hear your Customers

There's still time for them to change their minds again and not support it,   We've been there before with them.

The fact they are supporting mini 3 now is promising.  I think it’s just bad information given out by the Dji support staff. They have canned responses and just copy / paste them.   I have hopes now that the Mavic 3 will be supported shortly after the mini 3 SDK comes out.  Litchi get ready!

This is not just a mistake. We are talking about the flagship drone. The drone that I pay $3000 for the FMC + Tax + 1200 for the RC-Pro + $430 for the 2-year Refresh. + Tax.
And they promise the SDK from the beginning and you tell me there are almost 2 years since has been released and the Mini drone has more priority on SDK? are you kidding me?

This is a lack of respect for customers.

On top of the satellite acquisition issues, horrible pictures with lens glare, and pano stitching problems the SDK is not even on the road map. This is ridiculous DJI.
This is not a cheap spak drone or mini drone. Is the flagship consumer drone.

Hello, ZeuS-FL. Thank you for reaching out. We understand why you're feeling that way. Regretfully, we have not received notice that SDK development will be added at this time for Mavic 3. Please rest assured that we have recorded your request and provided feedback to the related department. Please check DJI's official website for the latest updates. Thank you for your kind understanding and support.

Where on the website can we follow the latest updates ? The Mini 3 Pro SDK update hasn't really been announced anywhere at least for what I've seen. The thing that grinds my marbles the most is that I just sold my Mini 3 Pro three days before the change on the post about the mSDK and changed to Mavic 3 for superior picture quality and C1 classification in the belief that M3 would surpass the Mini 3 Pro in priority for the SDK or at least support at the same time.

The faa regulation is unconstitutional an fascist.  It does not apply to me.  And its still a personal choice.  If I don't want to disclose my location, thats my choice.  Drones don't mean fascism, and more people need to speak up about it.  Not sit around an smile while the ability to enjoy a hobby is robbed from us.  The federal government also misled the public into thinking there would be places to fly without rid, called frias.  there are more radioactive disposal sites in existence then frias, an to make one you need to be a cbo.  Another mislead, theres only 3 of those an your not getting approved easily to own a fria.  Must be educational or some other bizzare requirement.  The faa can go suck my right an left testicle.

Personally, I could understand the need for RID, but should just not be generally available to any person that wants it.  The part that really gets me is broadcasting the RPIC's location.  That is not necessary, and I could see, especially in the environment of today's world, where there is going to be more attacks on the RPIC's.

They didn’t promise from the beginning and never said when it would come, M3 was released 1 year 3 months ago not 2 years.

It would be nice to have SDK but my guess is less than 5% of users will use it except for Litchi and they already have decent waypoints.

A side from mapping what else will SDK throw up that users need and will use ?

Derailing a thread with concerns about RID shows that RID is needed and that your drone needs to be monitored.

Why do you not sell it then if it has issues that you mention here.
Even if an SDK were available it will not magically fix things.
Sounds more like venting and letting off some steam to me.

They said that people would be shot in the streets drones stolen beaten robbed and raped if RID was made compulsory, I don’t read or hear of any interference to drone users since its inception. You do know all flights on your drone have been recorded for a long time now and you and your drones location have already been banked.
We don’t have compulsory RID yet, but if we did two clowns that effectively shut down Dublin Airport last weekend would have been caught and dealt with and thousands would not have had their flights delayed.

It’s harsh to say it fascist when you signed up to it. You’ll find if you break no rules you won’t have any problem flying within the rules.

SDK's main use for me is Mapping, 3D modeling, Facade, and Waypoint missions, very custom.
Also, give instructions to the drone on what to do at desired moments.
Completely necessary.

You can be surprised by what can be done in 3rd party hands by using the SDK. Donelink, Litchi, DroneDeploy, Pix4D, there are plenty of good developers better than DJI with all respect to DJI.

so well versed on all the professional sw but no so well-versed on the equipment that runs it, huh?

why not just get an enterprise and call it a day and put this entire debacle behind you once and for all?

i dont yet know the answer to this right away but im sure i will learn more later.  is dji holding onto the m3 sdk to drive business to enterprise-capable drones, is that what we think is happening?

Well if it meant that much to you, you bought the wrong drone. I don’t believe anyone would spend 5k on something that couldn’t do what they needed it to do and at a time when there were other choices, that cost a lot less. If you were depending on SDK it was a bad move. But maybe someday.

Nothing to do? really?
What do you think was the problem with the satellite on the Mavic 3?
DroneDeploy and Pix4D are the best mapping solutions utilizing the SDK. Their software is much better than any DJI mapping solution. The SDK is just commands given to the drone to perform an instruction. The software part is the trick on how to correctly perform the commands but if DJI does not release that they can not do anything.

The Mavic Mini 1 and 2 were not able to follow me with the DJI FlyApp... Litchi makes it happens with software using the SDK.

Even the camera settings, gimbal commands, etc... can have better manipulation. For example, I want to do a Facade of an structure taking pictures every X seconds. Do it with DJI sofware? can you?

Hi, fans13d7c374. Thank you for joining the thread. I can't imagine how frustrating that must be. For any updates, please stay tuned to the latest news on our DJI official website at (www.dji.com) or by checking the Release Notes specific to your product (https://www.dji.com/downloads/products/mavic-3). Thank you for your continued support.

To be fair, who uses the onboard stitching for anything other than a preview? For every drone I've ever owned, I just pull the raw images off the SD Card and put them into Affinity Photo for stitching.
