    Somebody on the P3 Owners group is stating that a firmware update is s coming out this week which will enable SDK apps. Says he got the info from a DJI developer group on Google.

    Just reporting what I heard.

    I just updated to 1.2.8 and now I'm sorry I did. Seeing the bars on the video screen, I swear the range is severely limited now as well. Never had a problem with losing a signal before. I'll be updating when this new firmware comes out too in hopes it will resolve these issues.

    Scotty, do you have a list of these apps? I'd love to know.

    For Android only there is Litchi and Ultimate Flight v3, a couple of others on the way too. Not sure about IOS side of things.

    I saw someone say that they saw Bigfoot.

    Just reporting what I heard.

    When it's released.... be sure to let me know how it works. I certainly won't be first in line to beta test it.

    (there is also a firmware forum now)

    I have a level 2 developers license and received all info in the mentioned email this morning. It speaks only about SDK & Beta related material. It gives links for all the mentioned downloads for the developers to begin getting their apps to work as they should. There is nothing in the email that speaks of a upcoming firmware update. What you see below is the only part that is not full of links to a developers area that requires a login.

    We are delighted to inform you that the DJI Phantom 3 Advanced has been added to the support list related to the latest release of the Mobile SDK, v2.1. This means that developers can now create their own app for the DJI Phantom 3 Advanced.

    Summary of Updates:

    1. Added support for the DJI Phantom 3 Advanced.
    2. Additional camera and gimbal API functions for the DJI Phantom 3 Professional.
    3. Various bugs fixed.


    I personally would like to see a firmware update this week, and I wouldn't be mad if it showed up tomorrow.

    I read that someone on another forum has been using a pre-release firmware and was so far so good. Hopefully we will get it soon.

    I have received a mail from SDK Developers

    To avoid this issue, we ask the all prospective beta testers refrain from updating their P3P's firmware to v1.2.6, provided that they have not done so already. This is a problem we hope to see solved soon, as we have seen that DJI already has another firmware update in public beta testing.

    They have seen it ))) We will be waiting.

    If there is another Android app that allows this, I would like to know.
