    SDK DEVELOPMENT
    Have a new idea that requires a view from the sky?
    Develop your own app by using the DJI Software Development Kit. The Phantom 3 platform is fully
    open and allows you to program apps that:

    CONTROL THE CAMERA
    Take pictures, record video, and control camera tilt and settings, all based on your app’s needs.

    ACCESS REAL-TIME FOOTAGE
    Record and analyze your Phantom 3’s live HD video stream. Use this real-time visual information to make your app more powerful and useful.

    GATHER FLIGHT DATA
    Full flight telemetry, including the Phantom 3’s live altitude, speed, distance, and more, is available to your app.

    FOLLOW ME
    Program your Phantom 3 to act as your own personal, flying film crew.

    GROUND STATION
    Set waypoints and assign automatic actions for your aircraft to follow.

    POINT OF INTEREST
    Select a location or object to focus on, and the Phantom 3 will continuously face it, no matter how you fly.

    Looking forward to seeing a lot of apps. Looks like DJI passed the responsibility/liability on to the app developers

    That's a good thing. They provide basic functionality, and the dev community innovates (just as Apple does with it's SDK). It's a successful model to follow.

    I agree, its good for everybody, less liability and possible complications with regulations from DJI's perspective and greater flexibility for users. I think it is a good business decision.
