DJI Mavic 2 ‘Pro’ Remote Controller Release Delayed? Find Out More Details
The well-known drone-maker DJI is reportedly releasing a mysterious remote controller soon. It has been speculated to be called DJI Mavic 2 Remote Controller with a built-in display. The device is expected to launch on Tuesday, January 8, during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019.
According to DroneDJ, the long-awaited remote controller will likely be delayed and not be shown at the said event. Several issues could be the reasons. The first issue is a component failure in the touchscreen. Second, the supplier is not meeting the production targets for another component. Finally, the price point that is around $700 USD would be too high to allow for widespread use and consumer’s acceptance and would also limit profitability.
In terms of specification, the DJI Mavic 2 ‘Pro’ Remote Controller will feature a CrystalSky display. This display will provide a much better viewing experience compared to flying with a smartphone or tablet. It will come with HDMI output, 1000-nit display, and a temperature-resistant (-20°C to 40°C or -4°F to 104°F design). It supports gyroscope, compass, speaker, MIC, and brightness sensors.
Then, the multi-touch display will have IPS technology and a high resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It will have 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. It will be equipped with MicroSD card slots, Micro-USB, USB-C, and GPS/GLONASS. It will be capable of 4K video recording. The built-in 980mAh battery and an external 4920mAh detachable battery will power it.
Also, the upcoming remote controller will be similar to the company’s 5.5-inch version of the CrystalSky display. It is rumored to be locked down so that only DJI 4 Go can be used. To those who are not aware, the CES 2019 event will be held at Las Vegas from January 8 to 11 that is just a few days from now.
