DJI has launches its new smart radio controller at CES 19, a device featuring a built-in display.
The remote, which lets pilots fly new drones without a mobile device, features an ultra-bright display screen optimised for DJI drones.
In a statement, DJI has said it hopes the release can help build around its existing ecosystem of accessories for its drone tech.
It can be paired with DJI’s newest drones including Mavic 2 Zoom and Mavic 2 Pro which use DJI’s OcuSync 2.0 video transmission system, displaying images in full HD resolution at what can be twice the brightness of standard smart phones.
Mario Rebello, vice president and country manager, North America, at DJI, hopes attendees at the show will test out the new release.
He said: “CES features the newest and smartest tech innovations from around the world, and that makes it the perfect place for DJI to launch our Smart Controller.”
He continued: “The Smart Controller is DJI’s latest tool to allow anyone to capture incredible perspectives from the sky, and we are excited that CES attendees can experience it first-hand. We invite everyone at CES to try it at our booth, which features our latest innovations in the drone and imaging field and demonstrates how DJI has established itself as a global technology leader.”
DJI has made the new Smart Controller available for purchase and will retail at £579 in addition to optional combination packages with the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom.
Alongside the new controller, DJI is exhibiting its full line-up of consumer drones and handheld imaging products at its booth at CES 2019, including the new Osmo Pocket stabilised camera, and will host exciting workshops and hands-on product demonstrations and more.
