At this point, it seems plausible that the Chinese dronemaker might slowly phase out the DJI RC-N1 in favor of the new DJI RC with the 5.5-inch built-in display.
In reaction to this news on Twitter, people started wondering right away if this also means that the DJI RC Pro will be compatible with the DJI Mini 3 Pro and if the DJI RC will work with the DJI Mavic Air 2S drone.
While many drone enthusiasts seem to appreciate the new DJI RC, some folks favor the old DJI RC-N1 remote controller in combination with a tablet of their choice.
“I wouldn’t touch the RC with the screen, honestly. It has only 700 nits of brightness and about an hour of battery life. Plus if the screen were to die you are SOL. I would rather have the option to add my own screen/tablet. I use an A7 Lite & it works great,” said CivilDisobedience on Twitter.
The DJI RC remote controller has a built-in 5.5″ 1080p display with a brightness of 700 nits versus the DJI RC Pro having a similar sized screen but with a brightness of 1000 nits.
The DJI RC has built-in antennas and is significantly lighter than the DJI RC Pro, but has shorter battery life.
