DJI Introduces A Smart Remote Controller With Built-In Display at CES 2019

DJI Smart Controller Brings Phone-Free Flight to Mavic 2 Drones

DJI, the world's leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, continues its tradition of making aerial technology accessible to everyone by introducing a powerful new remote controller for its drones at CES 2019. DJI claims the setup time with the Smart Controller to be 30 seconds, compared to a few minutes when using a smartphone.

Android is powering the system behind the controller, so you'll have access to a variety of third party apps for sharing and editing your videos.

Removing the smartphone element of the controller is created to greatly improve the setup and operation time of the drone and controller.

The Smart Controller can be used regardless of season as well, with DJI saying that it can operate in temperatures as low as -4-degrees Fahrenheit and as high as 104-degrees Fahrenheit.

The screen itself is an ultra-bright display that has been optimized for use in direct sunlight thanks to its output of 1000 cd/m2, which is twice the brightness you'll find on standard smartphones.

He did very well and caused a lot of problems to them. "But for me I just wish he stays with us". Of course, he can develop in Germany as well and don't forget Bayern Munich is also a big club.

"Employing the 5.5" CrystalSky Monitor, DJI has created a Smart Controller that also includes a brand new DJI App called DJI Go Share. The Smart Controller combines an ultra-bright display with all of the usual controls, in a move that the Chinese manufacturer will be hoping appeals to pilots who want to fly without having to bring along a phone or tablet.

The drone is priced at $650 and can be purchased on the official DJI site. Another reason the environment won't have such an impact is the controller's ability to withstand both hot and cold temperatures with an operating range of -20 degrees Celsius to +40 degrees.

Will you upgrade to the new DJI Smart Controller?? It's also able to automatically switch between 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz to ensure you receive a steady feed over long distances - the controller has a range of up to 8km (4.97 miles).

Quick charging 5000mAh battery capable of 2.5 hours continuous use. Combination packages of the Smart Controller with Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom will be available as well. I like its compact remote control quite a bit, but it does still make you hook up your smartphone in order to see what the drone's camera sees.

In the end, it sounds like the DJI Smart Controller would be a handy accessory to have, but there are a couple of things to consider before you buy one. It copies footage and images from the controller to your smartphone so you can share and edit on the go. We now know why: DJI had something else planned.
