DJI Mini 2 Just Got Smarter

In the latest DJI update, the DJI Mini 2 (the hottest selling DJI Drone on the market), is now compatible with the DJI Smart Controller. This is an ultra-bright all in one solution which allows the use of the controller in sunny conditions and harsher weather conditions. 

What is a DJI Smart Controller?

The DJI Smart Controller is an all in one solution that includes a High-Brightness 5.5" 1080p screen, OcuSync 2.0, built-in thermal management and an impressive lasting battery life of 2.5 hours. This is an excellent option for those who want a dedicated controller for the Mini 2 and don't want to lug around extra controllers, tablets and cables. Further, the DJI Smart Controller can be charged through the USB-C port at the bottom whilst in use, allowing the usage time to be further extended. The Smart Controller also has HDMI out, which is helpful in situations where you need to broadcast or would like to share your flight directly to your TV. 

Why DJI Smart Controller? 

This is perfect for those who carry the DJI Mini 2 as a secondary back-up drone and minimises the amount of RC's being carried around. If you are already carrying around a drone with smart controller, you can purchase the Mini 2 Drone Only from D1, where you will get just the drone, battery and some accessories.

What else is the DJI Smart Controller Compatible With?  

The DJI Smart Controller also works with the DJI Air 2S, Mavic Air 2, Mavic 2 Pro, Mavic 2 Zoom and the  Phantom 4 Pro V2.0. 

What are the requirements? 

Ensure your DJI Mini 2 Aircraft Firmware is up to date (v01.03.0000) along with the DJI Smart Controller (v01.01.00.58) and the Standard Remote Controller is at V.04.11.0016. 

Additional Notes

The latest update has optimised and improved the gimbal in FPV mode and most importantly, has solved the auto-discharge issues found with the DJI Mini 2 Batteries. 

Regardless if you are looking to use the DJI Smart Controller with the DJI Mini 2, it is recommended to update to the latest firmware just to solve all the minor bugs and issues!
