DJI issues remote control for drones with a built-in screen




DJI has introduced a remote control with a built-in screen as part of the CES exhibition. This means that owners of certain DJI drones are no longer dependent on, for example, a smartphone for showing the images.

DJI reports that the Smart Controller ensures that drone owners do not have to use their smartphone or tablet for a long time to control their drone including images. The remote control has a 5.5 “screen with a 1080p resolution that achieves peak brightness of 1000cd / m², so that it must be reasonably usable even in sunlight.

Owners of the recently released DJI drones can use the Smart Controller. These are drones from the Mavic 2 series, namely the Pro, Zoom and Enterprise. But owners of other drones equipped with DJI’s OcuSync 2.0 video transmission system can also use the remote control. OcuSync 2.0 automatically switches between 2.4 and 5.8 GHz and, according to DJI, guarantees a stable video connection up to a distance of 8 km.

The Smart Controller can be used according to the manufacturer in temperatures between -20 and 40 degrees Celsius. At even warmer or colder temperatures, the device can probably still be used, but then a reliable HD connection is no longer self-evident. The remote control lasts 2.5 hours on a battery charge. Any photos or videos taken can be shared with a smartphone using the built-in DJI GO 4 app. The device uses an Android dashboard.

DJI’s Smart Controller is available for 649 euros, but the device can also be purchased in a bundle with the Mavic 2 Pro or the Mavic 2 Zoom.
