The overall size of the smart controller is a little larger than the size of the standard version, similar to the size of the unfolded standard controller with cellphone.

I wouldn’t say crazy, we already pay around €350 for RC add a Crystalsky to that €500 so for similar but old tech we pay €200 more, so not easy to define Crazy.

Depending on your needs it is crazy indeed.
If you think of it as a CrystalSky plus a controller (the last one you already have....) it is not that strange.
There is no reason for me to buy btw. I rather buy a tablet or something like it, that I can use for other things too.

I agree.
Having had the chance to see and use one, in person, I think cost wise its a tad rich for most users.

Other then that, I think to stay in the "compact" arena, it may have better if DJI made it so that the monitor could be split from the controller end of things so that it then would be 2 separate pieces making much easier to fit into existing pre-cut cases, backpacks, etc..  . A simple click in connector could have made this possible.

Yes I think that is right.
But that would have been very similar to the ChrystalSky solution.

If I buy a Mavic Pro 2 I will purchase it with the Smart Controller.  If I already had the Pro 2 with it's original controller it would be a tougher decision.  I have the Phantom Pro 4 with the integrated controller.  To me, the simplicity of this arrangement combined with the brighter monitor was worth the extra cost.  I think the Mavic Pro2/Smart Controller combination when bought together will (for me) be my choice.  I want to purchase this package now but the Smart Controller is not in stock.  Why does DJI continue to announce the release of new products; generate a lot of interest...and then are unable to deliver?

It is available to most the rest of the world, it has not been passed by FCC because of America’s governments furlough .

Is that confirmed?....or just the rumor?  In any case it seems to me that FCC approval should have been obtained prior to release.

, Dji have announced that this is a problem with US FCC and they announced it at CES , I suppose if you don’t believe it take it up with dji, but would seem strange that the country they do the most business with, that they would forget to get FCC Approval, or they would be late applying for it, I don’t believe that , but I’m sure some will..
