Today, DJI released a new DJI Smart Controller firmware update. Version v01.00.0530. This firmware update, which can only be installed with the use of DJI Assistant 2 offers a number of bug fixes as well as a host of new features, such as the Dual Remote Controller mode. However, the most interesting new feature for most commercial drone pilots is the ability to manage a fleet of aircraft from within the app. Check out the video below from Originaldobo as he shows you how you can switch from a DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise to a DJI Mavic 2 Pro all from within the DJI Smart Controller. This functionality only works for the Mavic 2 Pro, Mavic 2 Zoom, Mavic 2 Enterprise, and Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual.
