DJI RC 2 Controller Important Firmware Update

Good day, folks. Shawn here from Air Photography. The other day, DJI released some firmware updates for the DJI Mini 4 Pro as well as the DJI Air 3, adding a whole slew of new features and capabilities. Now, I've already made a few videos going over all the details of the firmware, but one feature I didn't touch base on in those videos is related to the DJI RC 2 controller.

It received a as well, whether you're using it with the Mini 4 Pro or the Air 3. Now, I'm going to keep this video short and sweet and just go over and demonstrate it for those who weren't aware of this new feature.


Firmware update for the DJI RC 2 remote controller

With this firmware update, we can now record screenshots and screen recordings directly to the memory card. If you're a creator, whether it's for YouTube or social media, that's actually a pretty big deal.

I edit everything on an iPad for YouTube and social media, and sometimes getting those screen recordings over to an iPad was a whole big ordeal. But now, with this update, we can just pull the memory card out, plug it into our iPad, and get our files.

I'll just show you that here quickly. Now, you do have to set that up initially the first time, and I'll just show you quickly how to do that. What you're going to want to do is go to your profile, then you want to go down to settings, and you can see we have an option there called ‘Storage.'


Right now, it's set to internal storage, but we're going to select an SD card. So, you want to make sure you have your SD card installed first. We're just going to tap on that, and it's going to ask us to do a switch. It's going to move all the documentation that's currently on there – the file structure, everything – over to the memory card.

Now, this can take some time. When I initially did it, I had over a gigabyte of files that needed to move, so just be prepared it could take a few minutes to do so.

This time, it should do it fairly quickly because everything's already moved. You can see we got confirmation that data has been migrated.

But now, I'm going to do a quick screen recording. I've stopped the screen recording, and I'm going to power off the controller. We'll take out the memory card. I'll put it into a card reader and plug it into my iPad. We'll go to our locations; I'm going to select ‘Controller'—that's what I have it named as—and we'll go to movies.

Then there is the screen recording that we just created. There were other ways to get the content over, but sometimes you had to import it into your camera roll, which I don't really like to do.

I like keeping things organized in the Files app, especially if you're transferring large amounts of screen recordings and files. It can get very unorganized very quickly, and it can be hard to find stuff.

So, definitely a great update for the DJI RC 2 controller, and again, this works whether you're using the DJI Mini 4 Pro or the DJI Air 3.

Well, folks, that's it for this video. Hopefully, you enjoyed it and got some value out of it. Give it a thumbs up if you did; it's always greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot for watching, and we'll see you in the next one.
