DJI Mini 4 Pro: Controller Compatibility Guide

The days of DJI drones supporting just a single remote controller are long gone, with almost all drones being pilotable with multiple controller options. That’s no different with the DJI Mini 4 Pro. Let’s see how you can fly.

What is the DJI Mini 4 Pro?

The highly anticipated follow up to the best-selling DJI Mini 3 Pro drone, DJI Mini 4 Pro takes the Mini series to new heights with omnidirectional obstacle avoidance, 10-bit recording and so much more. Plus, it still maintains the all-important sub-249 gram weight class you’ll need for licence-free flying.

What Controllers are Compatible with DJI Mini 4 Pro?


A refreshed classic, the DJI RC-N2 remote controller updates the original DJI RC-N1 introduced to pilots in 2020. Released alongside the DJI Air 3 in mid-2023, the DJI RC-N2 adopts the same ergonomic outer design as its predecessor, meaning all of your existing accessories are still compatible!

The RC-N2 has seen a significant performance boost under the hood, with new internal antennas to support the Mini 4 Pro’s O4 transmission for flying up to 20KM away. RC-N2 pairs perfectly with DJI Mini 4 Pro and is ideal for those who are just learning to fly - providing an affordable entry point to the Mini 4 Pro.

DJI Mini 4 Pro can also be piloted with another second generation controller: DJI RC 2. The successor to the DJI RC made popular by the previous-generation DJI Mini 3 Pro drone, this new controller features a big built-in screen - a big upgrade compared to the DJI RC-N2.

The DJI RC 2 is ergonomic and easy to use, providing tactile controls and more stable video transmission with new external antennas that support DJI O4 transmission with DJI Mini 4 Pro.

The biggest advantage of the RC 2? This controller eliminates the need to fly with your smartphone, removing one more variable from your flying experience. The RC 2’s display is brighter than most smartphones and delivers distraction-free flights, allowing you to focus fully on framing your shots.

Admittedly, this controller is pricier than the standard DJI RC-N2, however, we wholeheartedly recommend the upgrade as it provides a massive quality-of-life improvement for everyday flying.
