DJI Mavic Air 2 firmware update adds Mini 2 to remote controller – V02.00.1100 – With a small firmware update (V02.00.1100) for the DJI Mavic Air 2, the new Mini 2 has been added. So, now you can select which drone you’d like the controller to connect with before you start flying. This allows you to use one controller for multiple DJI drones in a similar fashion as to what’s already possible with the DJI Smart Controller.
