In today’s video about the DJI Mini 2, it was shown that the new lightweight drone will use the exact same remote controller as the DJI Mavic Air 2. This should mean that the DJI Mini 2 also works with the DJI Smart Controller. Or at least, DJI can make it work through a firmware update if they so chose to.
DJI Mini 2 should work with the DJI Smart Controller
The YouTube video about the yet-to-be-released DJI Mini 2 shows that the new DJI drone will come with the exact same remote controller as the DJI Mavic Air 2, i.e. Model RC231.
Since the DJI Mavic Air 2 is now compatible with the DJI Smart Controller this should mean that the new DJI Mini 2 would also work with the RC231.
If this is indeed the case, drone pilots who manage fleets of DJI Mavic and Phantom 4 drones or anybody who is already in possession of the DJI Smart Controller will be glad to learn about this.
We will confirm as soon as possible.
