Thanks for signing up for the forum! We’re really excited to have you as one of our beta testers. This post is here to give you a bit of context as to what to expect, and how to get started.
First off - this is a beta.
This means that we have tested the core functionality out on our vehicles/devices - however, we have only a few inspire/phantom3’s and a few Android devices on hand here. This means we expect a few teething pains as we understand what it takes to get all drones and devices compatible, please bare with us
Further, this is not a fully complete or polished product - there may be some messaging which doesn’t make complete sense, we may have issues downloading/uploading images etc. Again, please bare with us through this, and please do let us know if you are experiencing any issues, so that we can try resolve them.
That being said, we have had several iterations of the app, and dozens of people test it so far, so we’re getting there.
Which devices are you currently supporting?
This beta is for the Inspire1 and Phantom3 Professional only on Android. We unfortunately cannot support the Phantom 3 Advanced at this time.
We will be sharing new APKs in the Releases category.
Please provide feedback!
If you have any problems or comments - please post a reply to the release you’re using in the Bug Reports & Feedback category.
What’s the timeframe?
The beta has been running for the last few weeks, and this forum is the first step in opening it more publicly. Once we have the majority of people onboarding successfully and making maps successfully, we’ll gear it up for public release.
Right now, the biggest issue we have is getting your Inspire/Phantom3 to the correct firmware version which supports the DJI SDK. Please follow the Upgrading Firmware on the Phantom 3 / Inspire 1 guide, and use the firmware listed under Downloading the Beta Firmware section.
Unfortunately if your firmware doesn’t support the SDK, we won’t be able to make an initial connection to it, and you’ll make little progress.
Once you’ve updated the firmware, please follow the rest of the Inspire 1 / Phantom 3 Beta documentation
Thanks again for joining us on this adventure, and we look forward to getting you mapping soon!
