Preparation before development

Before using PSDK to develop a load device, it is recommended to learn the basic knowledge required to develop the load device, understand the functions of the PSDK and the standards that the load device needs to meet, and choose a suitable hardware platform and a reliable development platform according to the actual development needs.

Start developing payload

When using PSDK to develop payload devices, please correctly connect the selected hardware platform, third-party development boards and DJI drones, correctly configure the payload device development environment, and compile by running the sample code. After the procedure, learn how to develop load devices using PSDK.

Develop a fully functional payload

4. Business Cooperation
