Mavic 2 remote controller with built-in screen

Some reviews:


Yes DJI very nice… but Very Expensive… do I throw away my 7" Crystal Sky monitor…?


I was debating on getting this or just the monitor since I have a MP 2. I think for a little more money, I will get the monitor then I can use with my MP platinum also. The new controller doesn’t seem to be backward compatible.


Will this controller work with the Mavic Pro?


It’s only compatible with DJI drones that use OcuSync 2.0. The Mavic Pro uses OcuSync. While DJI did recently upgrade the Phantom 4 Pro V2 from OcuSync to OcuSync 2.0, I don’t think the Mavic Pro has the hardware required for that upgrade.


Got it, thanks Mike for the quick response.


The Smart Controller is now available in the US here in the DJI Store. The DJI Store shows it’s currently shipping 1-3 business days after payment confirmation.
