DJI Smart Controller lets you pilot drones without phones
DJI unveils a powerful remote controller for its drones at CES 2019. The new DJI Smart Controller sports an ultra-bright display screen and controls optimized for DJI drones which will let pilots fly new drones without a smartphone or tablet.
Smart Controller expands pilot options
The DJI Smart Controller sports a compact, highly portable design optimized for use in direct sunlight. Its 5.5-inch ultra-bright display with an output of 1000 cd/m2 shines twice the brightness of standard smartphones, providing drone pilots with a crisp and clear display.
This new remote controller can be paired with DJI’s newest drones including Mavic 2 Zoom, Mavic 2 Pro, and Mavic 2 Enterprise series supported with OcuSync 2.0 video transmission system.
On its display, the DJI Smart Controller is supported with a customizable Android dashboard with built-in apps like DJI GO 4, DJI Pilot and other third party applications such as editing programs. The DJI GO 4 app is now infused with new features like SkyTalk and DJI GO-Share, making it easier to share recorded content. SkyTalk allows pilots to livestream the drone’s camera feed to social channels like Facebook, Instagram and WeChat, while DJI GO-Share seamlessly transfers images and videos from the controller to mobile devices.
Pilots and drone enthusiasts can enjoy flying longer with DJI Smart Controller’s 2.5 hours of battery life with its quick charging 5000mAh battery capacity. This controller can also operate in temperatures as cold as -4° Fahrenheit and as hot as 104° Fahrenheit.
The DJI Smart Controller will be available for purchase starting January 8, 2019 for the retail price of $649 USD. Visit www.dji.com/smart-controller to learn more.
