One of the most interesting things we’ve seen at the CES this year is a new drone controller from DJI. We trust this brand when it comes to mobile video cameras because it offers different solutions to every videographer’s need. From professional cameras to gimbals to compatible apps, DJI has something for us. Around the same time last year, the Osmo Mobile 2 gimbal for mobile videography was announced followed by the DJI Mavir Air ideal for 4K videos.
If you’re looking for a new action camera or drone, you may want to check out DJI. The drone maker has just revealed the DJI Smart Controller. It’s another proof that aerial technology is here to stay and is actually now accessible to everyone.
This is more of a smart controller that includes a bright display and controls optimized for drones. You will need to buy a DJI drone separately but we recommend this controller.
You see in drone technology, the drone camera itself may not be enough. You need an efficient controller because your actual control and navigation will matter.
Controlling a drone isn’t easy. It appears easy but there is a learning curve in piloting a flying camera. Even without a tablet or camera, you can use the DJI Smart Controller.
Use any of your DJI drones with the Smart Controller whether it’s a Mavic 2 Zoom or Mavic 2 Pro. You can also use it with DJI GO 4 or DJI Pilot. Feel free to customize and Android dashboard meant for the DJI system.
You can share live feed of your drone footage with the help of SkyTalk to different social media channels. DJI GO-Share lets you transfer content easily. The device can last up to 2.5 hours of total flying. It can withstand extreme temperature from 104° Fahrenheit to -4°.
DJI Smart Controller costs $649. It’s now available for sale.
