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.
DJI Mavic Air 2 firmware update adds Mini 2 to remote controller
This might be one of the smallest firmware updates ever for DJI with a file size of 0.6 MB. Firmware update V02.00.1100 for the DJI Mavic Air 2 adds the option to choose which aircraft you want to fly when using the remote controller DJI RC-N1 that ships with the DJI Mavic Air 2 and now also the DJI Mini 2.
Added support for DJI RC-N1 Remote Controller. The DJI RC-N1 Remote Controller can be used with the DJI Mini 2 as well as Mavic Air 2 (requires DJI Fly V1.2.0 or later).
The firmware update also enables DJI to start selling drones and remote controllers separately, although we have not heard of any indication that this is where DJI is heading.
