I would love to put the RS2 on one of my medium / heavy-lift drones. I see it can be mounted on a crane and a remote arm. What options are there for mounting and controlling it from a drone?

This is a tethered solution. For a drone, it would obviously need to be wireless.

Agreed. Which is why I am keen on seeing if I can get it to work.

The range on the Bluetooth is apparently about 350ft which is not enough for a drone. Bluetooth 5.0 does have a long range capability up to 1km. I wonder if there is some way that can be incorporated here.

I have successful connected a sbus protocol RC receiver to the RS2 that actual control the basic functions. By now that is not supported by DJI. I hope they will support RC connections and add more/all functions to the sbus in future.

Can you share more information about how you did that? S.BUS would be perfect!

You need to connect the focus wheel from the S/SC to the RS2 to have the sbus connector. Flip the switch to sbus, connect the receiver and then map the channels in you TX RC remote. I have placed a video here a bit below we’re you can see it in action and see what’s working by now.
