Manufacturers with custom payload SDKs?

I am part of a team developing a custom payload to be used for a specific use case. Our system would be sold as a turn key solution so the customer would buy the drone with our payload and custom software. Right now we are in the research phase and I am researching what drones potentially would offer us a lower cost to deploy and interface with. It looks like a payload SDK would greatly reduce our costs to develop and the hardware needed by piggybacking on the drone's onboard computer and ground communication.

DJI offers a payload sdk for the Mavic 200, 210, and 300 series and I have heard that Yuneec has something of the sort for the H520E but I cant get through to developer.yuneec.com to learn more. My questions are: are there other drone manufacturers that provide an SDK for communicating with and passing data from a custom payload to the ground? Any that don't have an sdk but still allow communication with the onboard computer? Does anyone have experience working with one of them?

Thank you kindly.
