DJI Smart Controller

 

The DJI Smart Controller is designed to maximise your outdoor flying experience.

It is compatible with the Mavic Air 2, Mavic 2 Pro, Mavic 2 Zoom, Mavic 2 Enterprise Series, and the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0, as these aircraft have OcuSync 2.0 technology.

A 5.5-inch built-in screen displays crystal-clear images, even in the most challenging environments.

The DJI Smart Controller boasts pre-installed features, such as SkyTalk and the DJI Go 4 app.

Key features

 

 

  • Built-in ultra-bright 5.5-inch 1080p screen
  • OcuSync 2.0 Full-HD visual transmission
  • Extremely portable device, with detachable control sticks
  • Operates in temperatures from -20°C to 40°C
  • Share your aerial images and videos through DJI GO 4 app's new Go Share function

Built-in screen

 

 

The DJI Smart Controller features a built-in 5.5-inch ultra-bright 1080p screen.  

At 1000cd/m², the display is approximately twice as bright as a screen on a conventional smart device. 

This helps to keep your feed viewable, even in direct sunlight.

OcuSync technology

 

 

The DJI Smart Controller benefits from OcuSync 2.0 Full-HD video-transmission technology.

This means that the device automatically switches between 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz.

This helps to reduce the influence of environmental interference on drone operation and image quality.

The DJI Smart Controller has long-range transmission of up to 8km.

Efficient, reliable and long-lasting

 

 

Battery life

The 5000mmAh battery supports quick charging and can work continuously for up to 2.5 hours. 

Stable operation

Stable operation in temperatures from -20°C to 40 °C, giving you reliable HD connection, so you can go further.

Take anywhere

Connects with your drone as soon as it is powered on and is portable enough to take anywhere.

 

Amazing video and photo performance 

 

 

 

With a built-in microphone and speaker, the DJI Smart Controller can play back videos through the HDMI port at 4K 60fps on the H.264/H.265 codecs.

Third-party apps

 

 

The DJI Smart Controller's customised Android system and optimised DJI Go 4 app ensures focused and faster aerial creation.

The Smart Controller also supports third-party apps for a variety of additional sharing and editing options.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an ultra-bright display? What are the differences between this and a normal display?

The DJI Smart Controller provides brightness up to 1000 cd/m2, showing clear details even under direct sunlight and making it an optimal tool for outdoor use. For reference, an average smartphone display offers a brightness of 500-705 cd/m2, and the indoor brightness on a sunny day is approximately 100 to 500 cd/m2.

What ports does the DJI Smart Controller have?

An HDMI port (that supports 4K video output), microSD card slot, a USB type-C port, and a USB-A port. Through these ports, you can output video, insert a microSD card, charge the controller, and more.

Can the DJI Smart Controller's brightness be adjusted manually or automatically?

The brightness can be adjusted both ways. When Auto mode is enabled, the DJI Smart Controller will automatically adjust its brightness using a built-in light sensor, making it optimal for the human eye according to the surrounding environment.

Can the DJI Smart Controller be connected with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth?

The DJI Smart Controller can be connected to Wi-Fi networks/hotspots and Bluetooth.

Does the DJI Smart Controller have customisable buttons?

No. You cannot customize the DJI Smart Controller buttons. However, we have designed a series of shortcut button combinations based on user habits for more efficient control and better user experiences. Please refer to the user manual for more details.

How can I update the DJI Smart Controller and the apps installed on it?

The DJI Smart Controller's system can be updated either by connecting to the internet or a computer with DJI Assistant 2 downloaded from the official website. Apps can be updated along with the system or by connecting to the internet.

What should I do if the signal strength is too weak for video transmission?

Check your surroundings for potential interference factors and then adjust the orientation of your antennas to enhance signal strength.

How can I transfer files with the DJI Smart Controller?

You can use a microSD card or the built-in Go Share function to transfer files. You can also transfer files by connecting the DJI Smart Controller to a computer (non-Mac) and selecting "Transfer Files" from the Smart Controller menu.

What is the SRE function?

By enabling the SRE function, image display will be automatically enhanced and optimized so that content is still clearly visible even under direct sunlight.

What is the difference between the DJI Smart Controller's built-in DJI GO 4 app and the normal DJI GO 4 app?

The built-in DJI GO 4 app has been optimized for use with the DJI Smart Controller. Both the built-in DJI GO 4 app and the standard DJI GO 4 app will be simultaneously updated.

Can I install third-party apps on the DJI Smart Controller?

Yes. You can download third-party apps through the built-in browser or install APK files from a microSD card. (DJI will not be liable for any permission or safety issues resulting from use of third-party apps. If an installed third-party app prevents you from enjoying optimal use of your controller, we suggest you remove the app or restore the controller to the original factory settings.)

Does the DJI Smart Controller support quick charging?

Yes, it supports QC2.0 quick charging via the type-C port at the bottom of the controller.

What are the functions of the microSD card and its slot?

You can expand the controller's storage with an extra microSD card and transfer the downloaded files from the controller to the microSD card. You can also view photos and videos saved in an aircraft's microSD card on the DJI Smart Controller.

Nice Product

Pricey but well worth it if your going to enjoy your hobby. Very easy to set up and it’s much easier than using a phone.Fits in the dji bag aswell.
I bought the air 2 and the smart controller together so I got Heliguy’s repair refresh on both items free of charge. That made the Smart Controller cheaper in my opinion because I would have bought both saving myself over £100 making the controller cheaper.

I always felt it would be better to have a dedicated controller and was not disappointed when I bought this. The screen is great and it feels good, no worries of my phone falling out of the grips.

DJI smart controller

Just purchased this for my mavic air 2 and so far love it, The screen is so easy to see in sunlight. I admit it is a bit pricey but you won't think of the price while using it.
Feels real sturdy and well put together.
You might read that updating the firmware is difficult but trust me, it is easy peasy, it is simply done by connecting it to a pc or laptop and use the dji assistant app.
I am very happy with mine and glad I made the decision to buy it...

Smart controller looked amazing. It was just not compatible with the Mavic Air 2 which is a pity.

Definitely buy one if I upgrade

A casual question answered in a no-pressure manner while still positively advertising the product and giving a great impression of a company that I always hear great comments about. An informative and very quick reply where I expected a short and basic acknowledgement. Well done Michael. You have earned a loyal customer when I finally take the plunge.
