DJI CrystalSky 5.5" Monitor

1000cd/m² of brightness means that this 5.5" CrystalSky monitor is approximately four times as bright as typical mobile devices. On-screen details are clear and sharp, and colours are vibrant, giving the quality needed to fine tune image composition. A dedicated Sunlight Readability Enhancement mode is designed for processing the image in real-time to ensure more comfortable viewing under bright light.


Smooth Video & A Custom System

The CrystalSky monitor uses optimised video decoding to decode video in real-time. Due to limitations in software access on smartphones and tablets, video decoding in other smart devices is less than ideal. When used to view photos or videos transmitted by the camera, problems can occur including video jitter, long latency and more. The CrystalSky monitor’s optimised decoder provides smooth, real-time video with minimal latency.

A newly designed system removes unnecessary Android apps and services and is resistant to viruses and junk software. This ensures that the CrystalSky monitor is able to offer optimum performance at all times. The embedded DJI GO app provides full access to all DJI GO features including aircraft parameter adjustment, camera control, footage management, and playback. Using offline maps, maps can be kept available even if going out of Wi-Fi reach.

CrystalSky Power Supply

Power Supply & Card Slots

A two cell 4920mAh secondary external battery gives the CrystalSky monitor a longer operating time than comparable mobile devices. It supports rapid charging and controls its discharge rate well even in low temperatures. Used with the 5.5" screen, it can achieve a maximum operation time of  5-6 hours.

Equipped with dual Micro SD Card slots, the CrystalSky monitor’s storage can be extended, or footage recorded on a Micro SD Card can be played back directly on the monitor. It can also be used for footage backups. Using editors built in DJI GO, high-quality edits can be made quickly and instantly shared to social media. The CrystalSky monitor supports H.264 and H.265 video decoding, allowing it to play back these files at 30fps and 60fps respectively. These videos can also be output through its HDMI port.


Compatibility

The CrystalSky monitor’s HDMI port allows up to 4K video to be output to FPV goggles and other display devices. Built-in dual-band Wi-Fi means it can connect to Wi-Fi networks and Wi-Fi hotspots from mobile devices, and it is also compatible with 4G dongles and USB storage through its USB-A port.When connected to the internet, the CrystalSky monitor gets easy access to system upgrades, live streaming, photo or video sharing, data synchronisation and more. File sizes are optimised as much as possible to minimise mobile data demands.Onboard Micro USB and USB-C ports make it convenient to connect the CrystalSky monitor with a remote controller or other devices.

The CrystalSky monitor can quickly connect to the Inspire series, Phantom 4 series, Phantom 3 series (Phantom 3 Professional, Phantom 3 Advanced), Matrice series, and Osmo series (except the Osmo Mobile) over Wi-Fi or via a remote controller USB port, depending on your specific product. Also, CrystalSky easily attaches to the Cendence remote controller without an additional mounting bracket.

Beautifully Designed & Optimised for Extreme Temperatures

The CrystalSky monitors from DJI are the next level of functional design for piloting drones. Sleek lines and a powerful display screen offer both an aesthetically pleasing and completely intuitive system perfectly suited to DJI's product range.

It is able to operate in as low as -4°F (-20°C) and, with its internal cooling system, functions normally in temperatures as high as 104°F (40°C).

Perfect

The screen delivers exactly what's needed when trying to operate in sunny conditions. Nice crisp clear screen and great form factor. Love the added ability to insert SD cards or USB thumb drive and back up my footage straight to them.

Crystal Sky 5.5

The brightness of this monitor is the key element. It does provide a much improved flight experience with any compatible DJI Drone. It is also allow viewing of photos and video recorded on the drones internal SD card once inserted into the monitor. It has 2 sd card slots so can be used to copy data from one to another in the field.

From a Flight App point of view this monitor only runs a bespoke version of the Andriod DJO Go and DJI Go 4 apps, no third party flight or mapping software can be installed. Hope DJI GS Pro will be added soon, when ported from iOS

The DJi mounting bracket is easy to fit and has a built in connection lead used to connect to USB port in the remote. No more separate connection leads required. However, once the bracket is fitted you can't use a tablet or phone (and therefore no third party software) unless you swap back to standard mounting bracket. The remote is heavier, withwith the Crystal Sky mounted so a Remote support harness may be required, especially with the larger versions (not tested)

HDMI FPV googles can be connected to the full size HDMI output on the side of the monitor, but we have not tested this

So in summary it does what it's currently designed to do very well, and does provide a more confident flight experience, but it's is expensive when you consider it is just a £450+ high brightness monitor running only DJO Go software at this time.

We use Inpire 1 Pro and Phantom 4 Pro for surveying and Mapping, so at the moment we cannot use it commercially due to lack of third party mapping software. But if you just want to fly, then the clear bright screen is a joy to use and makes the camera image and the flight data clear at first glance and at the moment, that's exactly what's it's designed to do, but at a fairly high cost. When it can run third party software, it will warrent 6 stars in the review.

Not perfect, but excellent screen

Pros
Excellent bright screen
You can see what you're doing regardless of sun
Long battery life
Feels solid and durable

Cons
Slightly glitchy Android operating system
Heavy-ish with battery on

I like it, and will use it, but it's not perfect.

Dedicated monitor

My initial impression of this 5.5 is that it is very very good for its brightness in the field,even with the sun shining directly on it, early days but it stays firmly connected where my iPhone occasionally got a bit flaky. It is a bit expensive but I now have no worry about having to keep altering the settings on the phone. I do hope that Dji will allow certain other quadcopter apps to be installed, but time will tell. For me anyway it was a good buy.

Great Display

After a few weeks of use I can say it's awesome product!
Brighter than my Samsung note 4 and Samsung Tab S2.
Performance is good, battery life is great, the touch screen is good as well.

Only cos is the restrictions for installation of other app's , if I can run litchi that will be awesome. Also Google backup and Google photos and youtube are a good services to use on my android devices but they are forbidden to install.
In the future I'll probably buy the bigger ultra bright display.

I would like to congratulate the team on some exceptional service that I recently had. I got in touch with Kevin in Repairs recently as I only a few days before heading to Croatia when my Mavic Camera Gimbal decided to have a malfunction. He took upon himself to do everything in his power to ensure it was couriered to you from Surrey and returned in time for my departure. I can't tell you how delighted I was to see it arrive prior to leaving as my continued work with a work provider depended on me Droning this particular Cycle cruise.
