I bought the mini 2 under the assumption that the smart controller would work. Now I find it doesn't makes me wish I hadn't have purchased it. Got me that time, shame on you.

sorry to hear that you are disappointed.

Never make assumptions when you want to buy something. I was intrested in the Mini, but because no RAW, I didn't buy it. Now the Mini 2 has it, so ...

I hope together with you, the SC will support the Mini 2. Got the M2P with the SC and it would be nice to have it, but it wasn't a deal-breaker for me. The compatibility with the Air2 did take a lot of time too and frustration with a lot of people.

Come on DJI make your smart controller even smarter. I thought the idea of the smart controller was to make it universal to ocusinc 2 drones.
Shake your magic wand and make it happen please.

Smart controller support for Mini 2 makes sense for those who already own a SC w/ other DJI drone(s) - and those want to add the mini 2 to their collection or fleet. The number of these users may be a very small percentage - and may not have ROI to support SC.

Think about it, the SC is almost twice as much as a Mini 2 cost wise. Mini 2 is targeted at the newbie or starter drone demographic and from a business perspective, it doesn't make sense to support the mini 2 for that crowd. It could also be that DJI want to push consumers who want SC - to buy the MA2 instead.

I think I'd consider it to potentially remove Fly app crash issues when using a mobile phone

It's simple, DJI:

If you make my DJI Smart Controller compatible with the DJI Mini 2, I buy one. If you don't, I won't!

The SC is a great controller and I would never go back to a basic controller, fiddling with smartphones etc. And I'm sure many other DJI users are in the same boat.

So, DJI, if you want to sell more DJI Mini 2, make it SC compatible!

Got my Mini 2 yesterday, very happy with its flight characteristics, it simply makes the Mavic Air1 look like absolute junk!  Can't imagine how much nicer it will be if it can be flown with the smart controller! Please make it happen DJI.

Please listen to your customers and provide this software update.

I'm gradually getting convinced that the guys are simply INCAPABLE of making the Mini2 compatible ; judging by the fact that they can't even get the existing supported products to work properly; as people are still having various issues with both the GO4 and FLY apps with their Mavic2 and the Mavic Air2.

Want the Mavic Mini 2 but will not be buying it until it’s compatible with the SC.  Once you’ve used the SC there’s no going back.

that's not true.  i fly my m2z and ma2 with the sc and then when i pull out the m2, i have no issues with using the rc.  my only issue is with the screen brightness which is why the m2 will never be my primary drone for vids.

I need this support that allows DJI Smart Controller to fly the Mini 2.

1. I use the Epson Moverio bt-35e which runs off the controller's HDMI port which only currently works with Mavic Air 2.

2. I need to reduce weight and simplify my backpack when I go out to fly. Having my phone free is essential so girlfriend can call me and tell me to stop all this flying nonsense.

Supporting this topic! Lack of Mini 2 support on DJI Smart Controller is so disappointing. I'm using M2P, M2Z, MA2, Mini 2 during traveling and for commercial work, and it would be nice to have 1 controller for them all. Mini 2 is so handy for flying extremely close, through the cars, under the cars, through some small openings etc. In some projects this drone is the only solution to do impressive content.

When is a smart controller NOT smart. When it is not capable. Well the thing is, the DJI smart controller IS capable. Are DJI programmers capable ,the answer is yes.
So why on earth will they not update the firmware to be compatible with their successful Mini 2.
If it's money then shame on you. I already think that anybody who owns a DJI have paid premium prices.
With a shocking after service. DJI cornered the market but things they are a changing and if DJI is to keep there customers they need to take a good look at themselves. Loyalty is earned and not by being taken for granted.

Judging by the amount of bugs it still has with the Fly App and the Air2, I am convinced it is NOT marketing strategy to not include the Mini2.

Dont think the smart controller will be able to fly the Mavic Mini ever... hope I'm wrong though.. DJI told me through using on line chat, that they wont ever be comparing the Mini  2 with the smart controller,, Unless they lied to me, which i would thought they do that. T.Hedges

Hello there ZeuS-FL. Thank you for reaching out and for the inquiry. This information has already been forwarded to our DJI R&D Team and as of the moment the DJI Mini 2 is not compatible with the DJI Smart Controller. Kindly please stay tuned to the latest DJI Mini 2 updates by subscribing to DJI official website at www.dji.com or following us on social media ( Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DJI , Twitter: https://twitter.com/djiglobal , YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/djiinnovations ). Thank you for your support and please stay safe always.

I got the mini-2 drone together with the Smart Controller as a 2020 X-mas present. The fact that these two items are not compatible is a bit irritating, as the SC offers excellent image resolution and clarity - and the money has already been spent.

Thus, the sooner dji can activate software compatibility, the better: I would much appreciate that step forward, and see no practical reason why this should not be the case. Using a smart phone is simply not the same quality experience.

To up this topic ;-) Still no news on Mini 2 support in Smart Controller? And considering that DJI started switching to OcuSync 3 (the DJI FPV is already OS3, and it looks like new drones, that we see on rumors websites will be OS3 too) it seems like our Smart Controllers will soon be just a peace of old gear, that is not compatible with future drones. Hope I'm wrong.

Unfortunately it is already old gear, it is over 2 years old and it is very obviously being abandoned already.

i think we already knew that one day the sc would run out of juice.  turns out it might be sooner than later.

Hope it will be new Controller ver.2 for Air 2S, it comes with OS3 support

It was abandoned long ago. DJI have done basically nothing with it other than allowing the use of MA2. Other than that I would find myself hard pressed to invest on a SC 2 as the same thing will happen little to no support.

I can't help but add my plea to the list.

Not counting the Tello, the Mini 2 is considered the least dangerous drone in your product stack, and crucially this is also reflected in EASA rules. It's the most serious one you can fly in A1 during the transition period and it's the only one currently available that will not be moved to A3 (banned from cities) in 2023. It is a massively useful drone, the 249g pitch is paying off big time, and yet it is relegated to only be used with a phone.

Yes, the Smart Controller costs money if you don't already have it. But what you're using for control on the ground is a big part of the experience of operating a drone. The SC grants you the confidence of a single, dedicated device separate from the quirks of your phone, and especially with the ability to mount an additional field monitor it gives you the best visibility into what's happening. To me it is the perfect combination and the best way to use the mini if you're not hiking up a cliff or something.

Considering it took six months to add compatibiltiy for the Air 2 and the two drones are using the same controller, I'm still holding out hope, but a sign would be nice.

I really do wish dji would make the mini 2 compatible with smart controller.  I could then use the sc to fly my mini 2, zoom, and ma2.. i really do like my sc, and hope one day, maybe, just maybe, dji will make it work.

Instead of staying silent, why cant you just tell us if we are gonna get to use the mini 2 with the smart controller, and if not please tell us why, we paid you a lot of money for the controller and was assured it would work with future drones. Is this the way to treat your customers?

The employees that run this forum can't even manage to get rid of blatant spam that has been reported to them.  The rest of their social media is similarly a disaster. I don't think anyone is empowered to relay consumer sentiment to somebody that can actually do something about the products.

I have been waiting since Nov 2020 to pull the trigger on the Mini 2.   I am ready today to spend the US$600 on the Fly More Combo (not a small amount of money by any standard), but I just will NOT do it until I hear confirmation that the Mini 2 is supported by the Smart Controller.   I have the Mavic 2 Pro and I have some very good applications where I want the small form factor and features of the Mini 2..   I don't want a Mavic Air or another Mavic quadcopter.....I want a Mini....specifically the Mini 2.       As someone else on this thread stated, when I purchased the US$750 Smart Controller it was CLEARLY stated on the website this controller would support future Occusync 2.0 products......well, last I read in your spec for the Mini 2, it uses Occusync 2.0 communication....so where is the support?
