DJI Smart Controller Stories January 15

DJI released a new firmware update (v01.00.0650) for the DJI Smart Controller (DJI, Amazon), which offers a number of nice new features. However, it does not offer support for the re-released DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 (DJI, Amazon) yet, unfortunately. Hopefully, the Chinese drone maker will add that soon. Other new features include the QuickFly function which as the name implies gets you flying faster. There’s also SkyTalk that enables you to live stream from the drone to third party apps. For all the details and other features read the release below. Be sure to update your DJI SMart cOntroller with the DJI Assistant 2 and not directly through the device.

Expect Litchi to be one of the first apps available on the, now even more expensive DJI Smart Controller.

DJI just raised the price of their already expensive DJI Smart Controller. We previously wrote about how the Smart Controller plays a crucial role in the future of DJI drones such as the DJI Mavic 2 series. Now, it seems that DJI wants to make sure it is a profitable one as well. The ongoing trade war between the United States and China and resulting tariff increases have led to a raised price for the controller in the United States. You used to pay $649. Now you pay $749 for the remote controller with a built-in display. Ouch!

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.
