As well as the above features, the DJI RC Plus includes more physical buttons, allowing pilots to build muscle memory, quickly access important flight features, and take advantage of a more seamless flight experience.
Six new buttons have been added and mapped to specific functions according to which camera view is being used. With just a little practice and muscle memory, pilots can seamlessly toggle through different camera views, zoom in and out, and drop PinPoints, without having to move their hands away from the control sticks.
The DJI RC Plus also has a quad-antenna design for enhanced connection stability. The top two antennas are also removeable - giving teams the ability to attach their own solutions to enable greater range and video feed clarity when interference is disruptive.
As well as enabling DJI RC Plus compatibility with the M300 RTK, the firmware update also:
- Adds support for the M300 RTK to use with the new TB65 Intelligent Flight Battery.
- Adds support for the BS60 Intelligent Battery Station to use with the TB65 Intelligent Flight Battery.
