Hi guys,

the brand new DJI Mavic Air 2 features a brand new remote controller. Maybe you're wondering, if there is the possibility to use a tablet with the new device holder. You can find an answer in the specifications: The new remote controller support a mobile device size with 180 × 86 × 10 mm. So I think it's actually not possible to use the DJI Mavic Air 2 with a tablet

What do you think about this?

I suspect that the usual aftermarket tablet adapters will work with the new remote.

It will not. The MA uses enhanced WIFI and the MA2 uses occusync 2

I don't think  the question was about the first gen vs the second gen air.

the real question is occusync 2 and will the current occusync 2 products ( m2p/m2z rc and scm working with the new m2a).  sounds like the answer is no for the rc and maybe for the scm.
eta:  correct "mc" to "rc"

Personally I do not care for the new controller design. It will make me stand out while flying, I prefer to not stick out.

I wasn't comparing the two. I was just giving the difference in transmission.

I'm used to standing out as I fly FPV with goggles on.....Hard not to doing that. Must admit that the new MA2 contoller looks a little duff.

Thanks for the correction.  Hopefully they will update the Go 4 app to support the whole iPad screen too.

I currently use a tablet with the Fly app and the MM, but you have to have a holder. Probably no good holder right now,  but if you are creative you might think of something.

Hi and thank you for your quick reply.

As I live in Sweden/Europe , can I buy a Mavic Air 2 from North America to get the ADS-B function?

As soon as this was available I ordered... we always get the latest birds... but you can just take it back - I'm not even going to accept it... I am sick and tired of the lack of attention to those of us who have invested substantially in your crystal sky system... with its $80 mounts (which I have no problem with as they work amazingly - unlike the $%^ monitors which burn out and require repairs at almost the same price as a new monitor...) - First it was we couldn't load 3rd party app... so there went Litchi, Auto Pilot et al. - then you allowed them in through the Amazon port... so fine... we invested in a couple... I am only proficient in one eye, it is imperative that my monitor renders the cleanest brightest image possible... specially because for some of our work I have to fly in-between some very expensive equipment... I digress... I'm just really really upset that DJI has dropped the ball on the CS line...

How about offering us a trade for a Smart Controller... In all other regards I have nothing but high praise for your company... on the many occasions we have used your repair facilities we have had a fair price rapid turn around... your birds are (for value) without competition, but damn it... give the Crystal Sky Team a kick up the butt... Mahalo...

Ummm, so you ordered it and then will refuse delivery? Is that what you meant? I must be missing the point unless you just want to harass the company?

I don't see why the same holder/adapter would not work on the new RC. I am sorta counting on it ;-) My issue will be in getting a new cable or cable adapter since this is a USB-C socket and the Mini RC has a micro USB-A.

Two things: (1) you are right about the cable, I did not think about a USB-C, and (2) the new holder squeezes up and down, not side to side, but then my tablet holder has a ball joint and I suppose I can just orient it 90 degrees around.
Actually, I just took a look at my hold, and yes I can rotate it 90 degrees, but then noticed that it looks like that will not be necessary as it is shaped so the new control will latch on to it.  Yay.  I've also got to believe that they will include a USB-A on one end of one of the cables.  Not many phones are ready with USB-C sockets (or am I behind the times).

Fly app already supports tablets.  At least it works with the tablet that I am using (Samsung Galaxy TabA 8 - with non Intel processor).  Really nice (and cheap).

Not too long ago I got reconditioned White Goggles (occusync1) and I am led to believe that they will work with the MA2, but don't know for sure.

Yes, there will be a micro USB-B cable (D-shaped, not rectangular like the -A) supplied but I am pretty sure it will be too short for a tablet. The one sent with the Mini was too short for my Samsung Tab A. The USB-C socket to which I refer is the one on the MA2 remote as far as I can see. The Mini RC has a Micro USB-A socket.

The last app just released added support for tablets, before that it was an unsupported solution.

Love FPV and fly it a lot more than my Mavic. Just ordered the DJI FPV System on a multirotor, so looking forward to that.

The Samsung was the competitor against the iPad mini 2 at the time.  Shouldn't my iPad mini 2 work just as well?

iPad mini 2 - Apple 7 system chip, GPU PowerVR G6430, RAM 1GB LPDDR3, Dual-core, 1300 MHz, Cyclone, 64-bit, RAM 1G
