DJI should just opensource already.  We should have the right to do with our hardware what we wish. Remember the Apple ordeal?  Let the nerds repackage custom firmwares or "hack" together better software.

When you crash, who are you going to come crying to?

Best leave well enough alone.

If you want for more freedom, build your own custom drone, son. Haha
You have a 3D printer don't you? Chuckles

Or buy an expensive professional drone, that don't have fancy APPs to play with. No onboard flight SIM. Wicked grin

Why would a company give away their competitive advantage? Open-sourcing does not mean you get better software anyway.

It already pretty much is open source. You can download the SDK from them and develop your own app.
It just requires a lot of work and knowhow.

Look at Litchi or Autopilot. All made from the SDK and changed. What you want is just to take their work and change it for your own solution.... Thats just lazy.

A SDK is not source and making an App wont change FW flaws.

@OP:
Most of the FW is build out of OS, DJI just have ignored the OS license terms and keep hiding the source changes where they shouldn't.
I am sure you can find some old source as base for a new build, you just have to figure out what components to code against and a way to flash it.
