DJI’s video of the Greenland expedition and the new remote controller

DJI's video of the Greenland expedition and the new remote controller

DJI posted a video on YouTube that shows more footage of the trip to Greenland with the DJI video team, Jimmy Chin and Kit DesLauriers. We had already seen some of this footage during the launch of the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom and Pro drones. The mysterious new remote controller that we have seen before, show up in this video as well (2:21). Initially, I thought this might have been the controller for the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise but since that launch happened last week and no new controller was shown, I am starting to wonder, will this be the controller for the highly anticipated DJI Phantom 5? Hmmm, now there’s a thought…

DJI – Expedition Greenland: Ski Mountaineering with Jimmy Chin

The video is quite spectacular. Especially the shots of Kit and Jimmy skiing against a setting sun are beautiful and show the dynamic range capabilities of the DJI Mavic 2 drone (or the Phantom 5 prototype?).

Here’s what DJI had to say about the short film:

“The coldest corners of the world can also be the most beautiful. Watch as award-winning director Jimmy Chin and freeskiing champion Kit DesLauriers face the formidable mountains and frigid temperatures of Greenland’s western fjords. They must navigate unknown variables as they ascend to the summit, and then ski all the way down to the base. This short video is a blend of stunning scenery, dogged determination, and an expedition of epic proportions. Shot on the Mavic 2.”


Will the mysterious new remote controller be for the Mavic 2 or the Phantom 5? Let us know what you think in the poll below.
