EDIT. Thanks everyone!
Found charger compatibility under the user manual http://dl.djicdn.com/downloads/C ... uide_v1.0_multi.pdf

Original
After looking at whats included in the CrystalSky Monitor box;
CrystalSky Monitor
Intelligen Battery x2 (CS785/CS785U) or x1(CS550)
Intelligent Battery Charging Hub (WCH2) x1
CrystalSky User Guide x1
Intelligent Battery Safety Guidelines x1
Mounting Bracket (Optional) x1
Hood (Optional) x1


I started to look at the Intelligent Battery Charging Hub:  http://dl.djicdn.com/downloads/C ... uide_v1.0_multi.pdf
WCH2_Charging_Hub_User_Guide_v1.0_multi.pdf.png

Q#1 The Charging Hub User Guide states the power port on the Intelligent Battery Charging Hub requires the INSPIRE 2 charger?


Q#2 Mavic Charger does not work? http://store.dji.com/product/mav ... er-without-ac-cable
$69 http://store.dji.com/product/ins ... or-without-ac-cable
$9 http://store.dji.com/product/ins ... er-adaptor-ac-cable


The $479 5.5 CrystalSky Monitor was looking good but $78 to charge + $79 mounting bracket (not even compatible) + $$ a phone bracket to mount the mounting bracket to.

So phantom 3, phantom 4 or inspire charging cord is required in order to charge the battery.  Mavic isn't on the list.  You would think the manufacturer would include a a charging cord to charge their "rechargeable" battery.

Is the Crystal Sky Monitor compatible with the Mavic Pro and the Spark?  I have not seen a definitive answer from DJI on compatibility with the Mavic Pro... and I've seen nothing about the Spark.  I'm considering getting this monitor becuase running my Mavic with my phone isn't working so great.  It kills my iPhone battery really fast. And if I'm going to spend the money to get an ipad spending a little more to get a monitor I can view in daylight seems like a valid option.

Define compatible...

Hey all spent the day yesterday filming with it on the boat:

I will go more into detail on the os / usage of the devices in another review but:

I found my self in places on the boat ive never flown from because the phone or ipad would be to glared out. the brightness is def more, but the biggest improvement seems to be how little glare the screen gives back compared to phones or tablets. Also with the screen to fly im not killing my phone on a full day out on the water. Here some pics holding the controller its really not all that bad. Nothing worse that an ipad mini 4 with hood thats for sure, and it seems more compact i really like the form factor.

Let me remove the rubber from the controller and see if it fits, ive never liked flying with the screen below me so i never tried it.







And the obligatory pretty girl shot:

None of the crystal skys come with powersupplies. You will need a P3 or newer brick. (Basically need somethign that charges the inspire style remote.

Thanks for the reply!
You used the hub to charge a crystalsky battery not with an inspire 2 charger? Just verifying cause manual said I2 charger.
Also how do you have it mounted before you try removing the rubber from the controller?
Mavic Pro 50W charger and 100W AC cable.
Mavic Pro charger does not work   ----   http://store.dji.com/product/mav ... er-without-ac-cable
So the Mavic Pro 100W AC cable says compatibility with mavic/inspire 1 chargers ---  http://store.dji.com/product/inspire-ac-cable-us-ca

Phantom 4 100W & 160W charger and Phantom 4 100W AC cable.
Phantom 4 100W charger ---  http://store.dji.com/product/pha ... or-without-ac-cable
Phantom 4 160W battery charger  ---  http://store.dji.com/product/pha ... er-without-ac-cable
Under comapitability it says 100W AC cable
But under the AC cable link it does not say that ---  http://store.dji.com/product/pha ... daptor-cable-usa-ca

Inspire 2 180W charger and Inpsire 2 180W AC cable
Inspire 2 180 180W charger  ---  http://store.dji.com/product/ins ... or-without-ac-cable
Inspire 2 180W AC cable   ---  http://store.dji.com/product/ins ... er-adaptor-ac-cable

Don't compare cables but only charger bricks. Even if cable supports that load it doesn't matter because brick doesn't.

Yes I updated the original post with a link to the battery hub user manual and the picture shows the only compatible chargers.

You can also try to verify with online chat support: http://www.dji.com/support

ALSO think about how you are going to mount the CrystalSky Monitor to the Mavic Pro RC.  How to connect Mavic Pro to 5.5 CrystalSky Monitor?

I do not see it on picture list of compatible chargers.

Post a link to the charger if you can over in the main thread, I  will link below.
