$650 DJI Smart Controller announced for DJI drones with OcuSync 2.0

DJI Smart Controller Brings Phone-Free Flight to Mavic 2 Drones The DJI Smart Controller takes drone flying to new heights

As long as the drone you're using, whether it's the Pro, the Zoom, or the Enterprise, uses OcuSync 2.0, the DJI Smart Controller is compatible.

The DJI Smart Controller also has an enhanced speaker and microphone built right in, and when combined with the all-new DJI Sky Talk feature lets you broadcast live video and images with audio over social platforms like Facebook and Instagram. You get the standard dual control sticks, the directional nub control, and buttons to power on the remote and bring the drone back home; a Pause button freezes the Mavic 2 in place. The 5000mAh battery has support for Quick Charge 2.0 and will work for up to 2.5 hours. This is ideal for setting the desired exposure, white balance and flying in bright sunlight, where sun shades would have previously been used. Another reason the environment won't have such an impact is the controller's ability to withstand both hot and cold temperatures with an operating range of -20 degrees Celsius to +40 degrees. The screen displays flight video in Full HD resolution. This is created to sustain the best image quality and reduce interference. This Android-powered handheld runs the DJI Go 4 app and features a high-brightness display. DJI GO-Share lets pilots quickly transfer photos and videos from the Controller to smartphones and tablets.

The Smart Controller aims to replace a regular controller, smartphone/tablet, cable, and sunshade with an integrated solution. DJI will also be selling the controller bundled with compatible drones as well. This is an interesting feature for allowing other crew members such as DoP's or directors to see the video downlink and influence the composition and style of the aerial shots.

The new Smart Controller will be available for purchase beginning in early 2019 for the retail price of $649 United States dollars. The controller is an Android device, running the DJI Go 4 app for drone control. Furthermore, OcuSync 2.0 allows you to take your drone as far as 8KM (depending on conditions) with intelligent switching between 2.4 and 5.8GHz also on board for the ultimate drone flying experience even in a crowded airspace.

Transmission distance up to 8km. DJI says it should fully charge in just 2 hours using a 12V/2A adapter and last up to 2.5 hours.

The DJI Smart Controller is available immediately when ordered with a Mavic 2 drone, or you can sign up here to be notified when the device will ship on it's own. However, does the additional price tag really replace using a smartphone all together?
