Onboard Computer Checklist

  • Provide your DJI OSDK App ID and Key to your application. In the samples, this is done in the form of a config file parsed before activation.
  • Set your serial port and baudrate in your application. In the samples, this is done in the form of a config file parsed before opening the serial port.
  • Make sure you have permissions to read from and write to the serial and USB port. Follow the Environment Setup Guide for instructions on how to do this.
  • For M210, extra steps are required. Please check out M210 Onboard Computer checklist.

Aircraft Checklist

  • Consult the Hardware Setup Guide to check your API port connections.
  • Make sure your Aircraft/FC has more than 50% battery power.
  • If you are using LightBridge 2/ S-BUS, make sure your remote controller is powered on and paired. If you are using A3/N3 without an RC, consult the Environment Setup for more.
  • Connect your Aircraft/FC's USB port to a computer running DJI Assistant 2
  • On the SDK Page confirm that
    • The box titled Enable API Control is checked.
    • The baudrate is the same as the one provided on the onboard computer. If you had to change this setting, re-start the FC/Aircraft.
    • Not all the broadcast telemetries are set to Do Not Send, i.e. at least something is broadcasting.
  • Upgrade to the newest firmware that is officially supported by the OSDK version you are using.
  • For M210, extra steps are required. Please check out M210 aircraft checklist.

Simulation Checklist

  • On the Simulator page,
    • Set your desired GPS location.
    • If your version of Assistant allows you to toggle Battery Simulation, set it to OFF.
    • Start the Simulator.
  • For M210, extra steps are required. Please check out M210 simulation checklist.

Real-world Tests Checklist

  • Please make sure you are in compliance with the flight laws in effect at your chosen flight location.
  • Follow the setup instructions in your aircraft's user manual to ensure your aircraft is in good condition for a flight.
  • Make sure you have tested your application in simulation before you try a real-world flight test.
