DJI Smart Controller Overview

  • 1Description

Pilot your Mavic 2 Pro, Zoom, or any other OcuSync 2.0-compatible drone in style with the Smart Controller from DJI. The Smart Controller has been engineered and designed to drastically improve your piloting experience and your ability to quickly connect your work with the world. With the Smart Controller, you can experience the joy of flying via a built-in 5.5" screen that displays your gimbal's footage and flight data in Full HD 1080p60 resolution. It's also designed to be extremely viewable, even in direct sunlight, with 1000 cd/m2 of brightness.

DJI's OcuSync 2.0 technology helps keep that crisp and clear HD video feed stable at up to five miles by having the ability to auto-switch between 2.4 and 5.8 GHz signals. And you don't have to wait to share the great footage with everyone online. The Smart Controller is designed to get your content out there quickly with SkyTalk and DJI Go Share. With these features and more, the Smart Controller is meant to elevate your flying experience, give you the tools to fly in more locations, and connect with more people around the world.

DJI Go Share
Go from drone to phone in minutes with DJI Go Share, designed to get the content you just shot uploaded to the web quickly and conveniently. DJI Go Share is a function of the DJI GO 4 app which can access the 16GB of storage built into the Smart Controller. With that access, DJI Go Share gives you the ability to transfer images and clips to your smartphone or tablet.
SkyTalk
SkyTalk lets you connect to your audience in real time, giving you the ability to live stream your drone's camera to social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. SkyTalk also lets you create short videos to share instantly.
Microphone, Speaker, and HDMI
The Smart Controller features a built-in microphone, speaker, and HDMI port to help further enhance your content and share it with others:

  • Microphone: The built-in microphone helps you interact and enhance your livestream footage.
  • Speaker: Watch and listen to clips directly stored on your Smart Controller.
  • HDMI Out: Pass video through the Smart Controller with an HDMI cable (not included) and display it on a TV in 4K resolution at up to 60 fps, utilizing either the H.264 or H.265 codecs.
Android Inside
The Smart Controller features a customized Android operating system that combines with the DJI GO 4 app to let you do more within the controller, instead of relying on external mobile devices. It even supports third-party apps to increase your sharing and editing capabilities.
Go Further, Go Farther
The Smart Controller has been engineered to support extreme temperatures, letting you film worry-free from a frozen tundra to the scorching desert. It is designed to operate from -4 to 104°F.
Efficient and Portable

    DJI Smart Controller Reviews

    Smart Controller is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I have a Phantom 4 Pro Plus and love the built in screen.  Using a bright screen cell phone with my Mavic 2 Zoom is simply unsatisfactory in comparison.  The Smart Controller uses the same Crystal Sky screen as the Phantom.  The difference between a cell phone screen and the Crystal Sky is fantastic.  Now I can enjoy flying my Mavic.  Also, it eliminates one device that must be charged.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much difference I have a Phantom 4 Pro Plus with the built in screen.  When I flew the Mavic 2 Zoom with my cell phone I was very disappointed in that I couldnt see the screen well.  Therefore, didnt enjoy flying the Mavic unless I used the DJI goggles.  The Smart controller has the same Crystal Sky screen as the Phantom and it makes so much difference with enjoying the Mavic even in bright sunlight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great controller I fly the Mavic 2 pro and zoom. This controller is great because its fast connecting to the drone and its fits my hands with comfort. The downside is its a pain to load apps on the android system.
    Date published: 2019-04-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dead simple, with extra advantages You turn it on, tap the screen a couple times, and youre flying. The screen is bright and clear and the grip is much more comfortable than the original controller. What I really like is the ability to run an external monitor for other people to watch while I fly, and the ability to charge it continuously while you use it via the USB-C port

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Counterpart to the Mavic 2 Pro I pre-ordered this controller the week it was announced, and was very happy to finally receive it. So far it meets and exceeds all my expectations. The large, bright screen is perfect for sunny days and the ergonomic design makes it especially easy to use. Its a product that just makes sense and IMHO was worth the cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This is such a huge step up from the original controller. The display is wonderfully bright. The size of the controller is perfect. The size of the display is just right. I will never go back to the original controller unless this one has a hiccup. Very happy with it.
