Great news for drone users who appreciate a great controller – DJI unveiled their very own Smart Controller. The premise is simple – the new controller is compatible with DJI’s top of the line drones such as the Mavic 2 series. The DJI Smart Controller offers a 1080p 5.5-inch screen on the surface – giving the flyer the ultimate visual. Most drones either have small screens, or use a smartphone to provide visuals. With the Smart Controller, your drone has a dedicated HD screen to view the surroundings.
DJI Smart Controller Review
With recreational and professional drone owners soaring through the skies, it is only natural to want to see everything in high detail. For rec owners, being able to view what the drone sees at high definition can be a great experience. Professional photographers can also use this to their advantage, ensuring they get the best shot possible.
The DJI Smart Controller offers better visuals than any smartphone can provide. This gives an incredible advantage for those wanting to see the skies at the best possible detail. The screen is also brighter than any phone. Phone screen brightness can be a problem especially out in the open. In the middle of the day, the sun might get in the way of you seeing what is happening in the screen. The solution to this is to adjust the phone screen’s brightness to higher levels, so you can see what is inside. The DJI Smart Controller adjusts itself easily to any brightness, giving you an easier time when using it.
The DJI Smart Controller can be yours for the retail price of $650. It is an accessory, so you have to purchase it on its own, after getting a drone yourself. This price may turn off some people, as it can be as expensive as the higher-tier drones like the Parrot Anafi ($699). So you may ask yourself, is a controller that is worth as much as an actual drone worth it?
