My first fairly “smart controller” was the Plus Controller that came with the Phantom 4 Pro+. That was a fantastic controller. Very solid in hand and the brightness on the articulating screen was reasonable.
Oddly enough, when I moved into the folding drone category of DJI drones, I never purchase a smart controller. It wasn’t until I received my Mini 3 Pro that I realized I never want to fly without a smart controller again, lol.
This is pretty sad because I have a few folding drones from both Autel and DJI that aren’t getting the love (recreationally) because they don’t get up and fly as fast as the M3P. Honestly, if my Air 2S was compatible with the new DJI RC, I’d most likely fly it more.
What are everyone’s thoughts on the DJI RC?
