Currently, the Payload SDK and DJI SKYPORT are only compatible with the M200 Series of drones, specifically the M200, M210 and M210 RTK models.
Registered companies, government entities, educational institutions and other organizations are eligible to apply for a Payload SDK Developer license, but personal developers are not.
In short, anything you feel relevant, but we’ve provided a few key points for you to include that will streamline the review process.
Yes, once your application is approved you will need to pay a license fee equal to $10,000 USD/year for developing one product line. Any additional product lines will cost an additional, discounted licensing fee of $5,000 USD per year for each additional product line.
Early-Bird discount: Any applications that are approved before November 9th, 2018 will be offered a discounted price of $5,000 for the Payload SDK Developer license and the first developed product.
No, any product that is developed under the developer license cannot be sold or leased for a monetary benefit. You will need to apply for the commercial license to start selling your product and manufacturing at scale. Details of this process and business agreement will be made available once your Payload SDK Developer License has been approved.
The detailed pricing and structure of the Commercial license agreement will be shared with you upon the approval of your Developer License application. To understand the concept, DJI will include the percentage-based licensing fee in the purchase of each DJI SKYPORT, so the costs are tied to your manufacturing process like a typical component.
DJI allows for the development of any type of payload where putting it in the sky adds value, but DOES NOT support the development of any weapons or devices that are intended to cause physical or psychological harm to people.
