  1. Hi, I'm a 67 year old IT contractor from Tyers in Victoria, Australia. I am self employed and specialise in writing specialist software for small-medium businesses. A current example is an interface between a weighbridge and Reckon for a local sand pit. I've just purchased a DJI Phantom 3 and am learning to fly it. I'm exploring the idea of using it for industrial/ agricultural inspections. Tyers is located in the Latrobe Valley, an area with extensive mining, electricity generating and farming businesses. Becoming licensed for commercial work is somewhat expensive in Australia, so I want to ensure I have the proper flying skills and that there's a sufficient customer base and demand before I follow the commercial route. I'm not particularly interested in doing things like wedding videos, but will not rule out any reasonable idea. Even unreasonable ideas will be considered! I'd like to explore how to use the DJI SDK (software development kit) for development of software tools to assist flying and management of images. At the moment I'm really just exploring ideas. Pat
