DJI RC Controller: Top 5 Features

After onslaughts of public outcry from DJI pilots across the globe, DJI has officially made the ultra-sturdy, high-performance DJI RC Controller available for purchase on its own for users who already own a drone. If you’re on the fence about whether to try out the new DJI RC controller, here are five fantastic reasons to give it a go.

The new DJI RC controller is packed with fantastic features that help it deliver superior flight experiences for pilots of all experience levels. As difficult as it was to narrow this list down to just five features, here are our five favourites:

Built-In Touchscreen Display

The most noticeable feature of the DJI RC controller is the huge built-in 5.5” touchscreen display. This full-HD touchscreen is designed with pilots in mind, featuring a peak brightness of 700 nits for optimal viewing and performance even in bright and glaring lighting environments.

Not only does this display eliminate the need for a smartphone during flight, it also delivers brighter images in difficult lightning environments so that you can get a true sense of the shots you’re capturing. This larger screen also provides more screen real estate than most phones for settings and control adjustments, and can be used to playback your recorded footage in 1080p/60fps.

Extended Battery Life

This one might just blow your mind! True Vertical Shooting makes its debut on DJI Mini, allowing pilots to capture full-quality vertical video with the touch of a button.

Instead of traditional vertical video where users have to manually frame and crop their footage after it's been captured, True Vertical Shooting mechanically rotates the Mini 3 Pro’s camera gimbal a full 90 degrees. The result? Beautiful vertical video in full 4K resolution and no drop in image quality.

TikTok creators can rejoice because this new feature is perfect for creating social media content and is bound to take your content to the next level. True Vertical Shooting is also a go-to feature for capturing dynamic Instagram Reels, YouTube Shorts and more.

But that’s not all, True Vertical Shooting can also be used in photo mode to capture stunning portrait orientation shots. This is great for taking photos of tall buildings and trees and presents a new challenge to help you practice and hone your framing skills.

Ultra-Fast Start-Up

This is one feature you simply won’t find by scouring the spec sheet; the DJI RC provides a massive quality of life upgrade that significantly improves your general flight experience and massively speeds up take off time.

With the traditional DJI RC-N1, pilots must power on their controller, connect it to their smartphone, fire up the DJI Fly app and wait for it to start before finally connecting their drone to the controller. All of that, before take off.

The DJI RC makes it easy with a simple tap and hold to turn on and an ultra-fast pairing will follow, allowing you to get in the air with the literal press of a button.

Precision Controls

Inspired by the precision controls first introduced on the DJI FPV Controller V2, the DJI RC is optimised to deliver superior control performance to pilots who want fine-tune control over every drone movement. These control sticks also feature an advanced dual-spring design that delivers a smoother experience even when making the tiniest of adjustments. Oh, and did we mention that these are the same high-quality control sticks featured on the professional-friendly DJI RC Pro?

Drone Compatibility

Want to know a great feature of the DJI RC Controller? It’s compatible with multiple fan-favourite drones from the DJI line up!

The DJI RC is of course first and foremost compatible with the best-selling DJI Mini 3 Pro drone that it was released alongside. However, with DJI rolling out firmware updates since its initial release, the DJI RC is not also compatible with the DJI Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine drones first introduced in late 2021. That means that you can ditch the RC-N1 in favour for easy viewing of the Mavic 3’s 5.1K video camera in full HD on the DJI RC.
