NEWS: DJI Introduces A Smart Remote Controller With Built-In Display at CES 2019
SINGAPORE – January 9, 2019 – DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, continues its tradition of making aerial technology accessible to everyone by introducing a powerful new remote controller for its drones at CES 2019. The Smart Controller features an ultra-bright display screen and controls optimised for DJI drones, allowing pilots to fly the newest drones without using a smartphone or tablet.
Smart Controller Expands Pilot Options
The DJI Smart Controller expands the ecosystem of accessories built around DJI’s industry leading drone technology. Using a crisp 5.5” screen built into the controller itself, the Smart Controller allows pilots to quickly get their drone in the air without the need to connect a mobile device. It can be paired with DJI’s newest drones including Mavic 2 Zoom and Mavic 2 Pro which both use DJI’s OcuSync 2.0 video transmission system, displaying vivid images in Full HD resolution. Drone pilots can take advantage of its compact, highly portable design that has been optimised for use in direct sunlight. It features an ultra-bright display with an output of 1000 cd/m2, twice the brightness of standard smart phones. A customisable Android dashboard supports DJI GO 4, DJI Pilot, along with various third-party apps such as editing programs. The DJI GO 4 app also touts several new features including SkyTalk, that allows pilots to livestream the drone’s camera feed to social channels including Facebook, Instagram and WeChat so that anyone can experience the thrill of flying a drone. Another new feature is DJI GO-Share which easily transfers imagery from the Controller to your mobile device. The DJI Smart Controller brings a new level of reliability when flying, with 2.5 hours of battery life and the ability to operate in adverse temperatures as cold as -20 degrees celsius and as hot as 40 degrees celsius.
Price and Availability
The new Smart Controller will be available for purchase beginning January 8th, 2019 for the retail price of $649 USD or $882 SGD (1 USD = 1.36 SGD). Combination packages of the Smart Controller with Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom will be available as well. More detailed information can be found here.
