Hi there!

I was wondering if the Windows 10 SDK will at some point in time also support the Mavic Pro or the Mavic 2?
At the moment it seems that only Mavic Air and Phantom Pro V2 are supported (https://developer.dji.com/windows-sdk/).
At least the Mavic 2 shoule have been developed with this in mind.
I want to avoid buying a Mavic Air if this will soon be available with the Mavic 2 as well.
Thanks for your thoughts!

Oh yeah, I oversaw that restriction. Wow, so that means I will have to control it from the windows computer that the application is running on?
So the Computer connects to the drone's wifi directly?
It's not possible to connect to the RC's Wifi?
Sorry for the dumb question, but as of now I'm only familiar with either having the Mavic Pro and connecting a smartphone to the RC via Cable or to the Mavic's Wifi. Or having the Spark connect to the RC and then  a smartphone to its Wifi.

ya that's what it sounds like.. maybe able to add controller support and RC support to the app.. but as for connecting to the drone, ya have to delink the RC and put the mavic air into wifi mode and have sign into that connection with your PC to then interface with it.. but overall being stuck on standard wifi from laptop or desktop for control is limiting..  i imagine maybe able to get around range issues a bit buy using some custom networking method to tunnel over ethernet out to a wifi router and outdoor antenna.. but still round about method..  i'd prefer if DJi also let us plug into the controller and use extisting RC connection..


the mavic air is similar to the mavic pro vs the spark.. the mavic air and mavic pro both connect to the RC directly and natively then plug phone into the RC for the app use.. unlike the spark dont sign into wifi connection for use with the RC..    but if you wanna ditch the RC, similar to the mavic pro you got to reset the drone's connection and delink the RC

wifi bands are very limited in range and congested. I would avoid.

yeah I am trying to avoid them wherever I can. Actually I am currentyl finding out if there's a way to connect a DJI remote to an iOS device AND connect a USB to ethernet adapter. So i can stream rtmp via cable and have the remote connected.

Dear Natalia, thank you for taking the time to answer my question.
My general question would be, whether the "Mavic Pro" is technically fit to be supported by the Windows 10 SDk. Thanks!

Hi, thank you for your clarification. However, Mavic Pro is not supported by Windows 10 SDK. The only supported product by the Windows 10 SDK are Mavic Air and Phantom 4 Pro V2.

Yes, I was just referring to oyur initial post where you said that the Mavic 1 and 2 are not "yet" supported by the Windows 10 SDK. Is there a slight chance of those drones being supported by the SKD?

Hi DJI Natalia,

What is the current status? I would also like to have Mavic Pro support for the Win SDK. What is the expected timeframe?

Hi all,
I asked the exact same question to DJI.
Their answer was: "We are sorry that we currently do not have the plan to support Mavic Pro , if we support it in the future, we will put the information on our website."

This is very disapointing and frustating because I bought 2 Mavic Pros just before the release of Mavic 2. I'm not goinf to invest anymore on DJI products until they clarify their philosophy going forward. Parrot seems more reliable alternative for developers.

Hi there, the DJI Windows SDK now supports the Mavic 2 series. We manage to run the sample code, to get the video feed and also take off the Mavic 2. However, the UpdateJoystickValue API doesn't seem to work in RC mode.  Anyone has a clue how can we control the roll, pitch, yaw and throttle of Mavic 2 using the Windows SDK?

Thanks.

I'm surprised DJI have done something themselves that is essentially a Windows 10 version of DJI Pilot or DJI Go. Or at least sample code to do all the basics like the UpdateJoystickValue API.

I'm not a programmer so was really hoping there would be somewhere I could download (or buy) applications that use the new SDK. Is GitHub the right place to look?
