DJI introduces smart remote controller

10th January 2019 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


DJI has launched a new smart remote controller that allows pilots to fly its newer model UAS without using a smartphone or tablet, the company announced on 8 January.

The new remote controller features a built-in ultra-bright display 5.5in screen that can be used in direct sunlight and controls optimised for DJI UAS. The smart controller allows pilots to quickly launch UAS without the need to connect a mobile device. It can be paired with new UAS including Mavic 2 Zoom and Mavic 2 Pro which use DJI's OcuSync 2.0 video transmission system, displaying images in full HD resolution.

The remote controller’s customisable Android dashboard supports DJI GO 4, DJI Pilot, along with various third-party apps such as editing programmes. The DJI GO 4 app also has several new features including SkyTalk that allows pilots to livestream the UAS camera feed to social channels.

The DJI smart controller has a two and half hour battery life and the ability to operate in temperatures from -4° to 104° Fahrenheit.
