GoProfessional Cases Lanyard Bracket For DJI Smart Controller

Published

on

If you are looking to purchase a lanyard kit for your DJI Smart Controller you may want to take a look at the single point lanyard bracket from GoProfessional cases. Since DJI launched the smart controller many lanyard kits have popped up on Amazon, mostly they all take the same approach were they have fasteners with eyelets that screw into the holes located at the bottom of the Smart Controller. A laynard is then attached in each of the holes. This works well for the most part with no issues. However what if you have a favorite or branded lanyard that you like to use, or perhaps when you fly you have several controllers with you. Most standard lanyards connect at a single point and would not work with the eyelets. This is were GoProfessional cases came up with the Lanyard Bracket system. It’s a bracket that connects to the bottom of the DJI Smart Controller and then offers a single point to connect a lanyard. This makes it easy to switch back and forth between remotes and not have to pack several lanyards with you when you are flying with multiple controllers. Plus you are free to use whatever lanyard you wish to use. Watch our demonstration of the GoProfessional single point lanyard bracket in action.

DJI Smart Controller Accessories From PGYTech

Published

on

If you are the owner of the DJI Smart Controller you may want to take a closer look at these useful accessories from PGYTech. Some of these accessories offer protection for your Smart Controller while others offer ways to enhance it. I have been a fan of PGYTech for some time, they manufacture some very useful products for drones, GoPros, and many other products and the DJI Smart Controller is no different.

DJI Smart Controller Case: The first Item we go over in our video is a storage case. This case is not overly big and can still fit easily inside a backpack. If you have a case for your Mavic 2 Drone but it does not fit the new Smart Controller than this is an ideal solution for you. This case has space to fit the controller and charger that come with it. There is a pocket built into the top to hold all your cables. The case is designed to allow you to keep you control stick attached if you like. A nice case that will help protect your investment.

DJI Smart Controller Cover: The second item we go over is a snap-on protective cover for the DJI Smart Controller. This unit comes in handy for those who like to pack their Mavic 2 in a backpack. You can snap on this cover and keep the screen, sticks and even the back data ports protected while transporting your drone and controller to your fight location. Just like the case this protective cover for the Smart Controller allows you to keep you sticks installed if you so desire.

DJI Smart Controller Sun Hood: The DJI Smart controller comes with a 1000 nit screen similar to that of the Crystal Sky, this allows you to see the screen easier when outdoors on bright days. However, on those really bright days when out in direct sunlight, it doesn’t hurt to have a sun hood to help make viewing the screen easier. This sun hood uses a specially designed screw and attaches to the front of the Smart Controller. Keep in mind if you use a lanyard with your Smart Controller this sunshade uses the same threaded holes to attach, so you can only use one or the other.

Watch our YouTube video as we go over each of these new accessories for the DJI Smart Controller in more detail.

DJI Mavic 2 Dual Remote Firmware Update | How To Setup Crystal Sky and Smart Controller

Published

on

A few days back DJI released a new firmware update (v01.00.0400) for both the Mavic 2 Zoom and Mavic 2 Pro. This firmware update fixed a few minor issues but added a long sought after feature and that is dual remote support. As of the filming of my YouTube video and writing this article it is only available for iOS devices and has yet to be updated for Android. This is a problem for many as both the DJI Smart Controller and Crystal Sky both run on Android. In my YouTube video, I show you how you can still go ahead and set up a dual remote system with your Crystal Sky and Smart Controller. I walk through the steps of how to bind a secondary controller to your Mavic 2 and talk about how it all works.

Now some may wonder why you would want two remotes for you Mavic 2 and I can think of two good reasons. First off, you can have a second pilot control the camera movements. You as a pilot can control how the drone is flying and its movements and the second pilot can control the camera moves, this can help create really dynamic and cinematic shots. The second reason and which is why I am really happy about the update, I primarily fly with my Smart Controller, however, sometimes I like to fly with my 7.8″ Crystal Sky for its larger screen and 2000 nits of brightness. In the past, this meant rebinding my original Mavic 2 controller every time, then rebinding the Smart Controller when finished. This was time-consuming and a little aggravating. Now with the new dual remote update, I can keep both remotes bound at all times and choose which controller to fly with.

Now a few things to keep in mind, your secondary controller can do most tasks just like the primary remote however it does have some limitations. You cannot adjust the settings in the menu, that has to be done on the primary controller. If a second pilot is flying with the secondary controller any inputs from the primary controller sticks will override the secondary controller. The secondary controller does have full accesses to all camera controls and settings.

Watch our video on how to set up dual remotes for you Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom including Android devices such as crystal sky and the Smart Controller.
