    That link goes nowhere for those of us who don't use FB. Looked on their site and nothing posted, didn't see anything in Google Play... Any other insight?

    Well I agree that the link doesn't work - but it doesn't help when you lick it either. ;)

    Just got 1.5 from the play store on my tablet and Im looking over the app. You have to sign up for Beta/Alpha testing to download/install.

    Hey guys,

    Just to correct eseckinger's post, Follow me is not supported yet, only FPV and GS (gs only with a custom firmware).
    That being said follow me and poi are coming soon!
    Also, before anyone asks the app does not support the P3A, only P3P and I1, this is a DJI sdk limitation.
    We also added a maximum altitude setting allowing you to set the limit far beyond dji pilot's 500m.
    With Ground Station, there is now a cable cam option which I tested today and it's pretty cool!

    Why isn't the P3A included in the SDK?

    We don't know, that is a question for DJI to answer.

    We would love to support iOS, unfortunately we don't have the time and/or resources to do so.

    Hi kaehn, just to spread right information the custom firmware is provided and made by you or by DJI?

    DJI, it is mainly for developers. I don't know when DJI will enable GS and other autonomous modes in the public firmware.

    Thanks for the clarification, no luck since I have the P3A. Hopefully DJI ads it to the SDK soon.

    Wow, lots of great tidbits in there, thanks for the response!

    Very odd that the P3A doesn't have the capabilities (at this point) to allow for the additional features. My initial assumption would be that if they're testing alpha it's likely easier to focus on one platform initially and then migrate the changes out to the second - and my guess is that you'd go with your more premium platform first.

    While the height restriction doesn't really concern me (not sure why I should be flying higher than 500m anyway) the GS with cable cam is freaking awesome! Since seeing the Solo features I was hoping the dev community would snag those ideas.

    Keep up the good work! Looking forward to release...

    Signed up for beta testing. Hopefully the rain will go away and I can do some testing with the P3P

    You will need to pm Kaehn for the custom firmware.
