DJI released another new firmware update for the DJI Smart Controller. The last firmware update was from a little more than one month ago. This latest update doesn’t seem to bring us any chocking new features but seems to focus on optimizing things like volume adjustment, photo display. It does, however, add the ability to format MicroSD cards. If you use the DJI Smart Controller, let us know what you experience is after updating the firmware in the comments below.

DJI Smart Controller review by Kai [video]
At the beginning of the year, DJI introduced the DJI Smart Controller at CES 2019 in Las Vegas. We had seen the controller pop up before in many official and unofficial DJI photos. The $649 DJI Smart Controller has a 5.5″ screen built-in, which is much brighter than a smartphone as you can see in Kai’s review on Youtube. Kai’s main takeaway is that using the Smart Controller just makes flying your drone easier and keeps your phone available and charged in case you need it for something else.

The DJI Smart Controller is sold out. Yes, almost exactly 24 hours ago, I wrote that the DJI Smart Controller was available to US customers and now it is out of stock again on the DJI online store. It seems that the new controller with the 5.5″ built-in display has sold out within the first 24 hours of hitting the market in the US. Clearly, many drone pilots appreciate the brighter, built-in display, better range and other features that the DJI Smart Controller offers.

Last Friday, I wrote about the DJI Smart Controller and when it might be shipping to customers in the US. Sometime that same day, the FCC re-activated the equipment authorization system and the filing for the DJI Smart Controller appeared. Since then the product listing on DJI’s online store has been updated as well and the product is now available for purchase.

DJI Smart Controller looks great, especially in a case like this with a DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise, but when will this new device ship to customers in the US? DJI introduced the well-received, but slightly expensive, DJI Smart Controller during CES 2019. However, ever since the introduction this new device has been listed as out of stock on the US version of the DJI online store. One of our readers in Germany was able to buy the new controller online and received it yesterday. The photos in this article were taken in Asia (Taiwan) where the Smart Controller apparently has been shipping as well. The US customers though seem to have been left in the cold. What is going on here? When will DJI be able to ship their new Smart Controller to their US customers?
Update 1/21/19: it is in stock now!
