Hi All,

I was wondering if anybody had luck accessing HDMI on the new Mini 3 Pro controller? It looks like there are two USB-C inputs underneath the new controller, one appears to be power but what about the second USB-C input? Could you just connect a capture device or would a USB-C to HDMI cord produce a HDMI clean out, like that found on my Mini 2 and Smart Controller? Not having an option to connect the controller, paird successfully with another device, perhaps an encoder and live streamer, creates a nice void any professional broadcast immediately becomes a stalwart?

My next question is will the Mini 3 Pro become compatible with the DJI RC Pro controller, for that found on the Mavic 3 and Air 2s? What about the DJI Goggles receive a firmware update enabling it to be compatible with the DJI FPV Goggles, which can feed a live video source, will this feature in the future come to being compatible with the Mini 3 Pro? I'm sorry but I'm thinking, if the controller has no way to produce any video output from HDMI or not, DJI not planning to offer a compatible option of the RC Pro with the Mini 3 Pro, then inferior reason not to purhase the drone with the premium controller the reason not to purchase this option perhaps to wait for the firmware on the RC Pro provides the better, more feature rich option, so I'd guess many would instead wait hopefully for a firmware update on the RC Pro, rather than purchase the Mini 3 Pro with a controller that lacks more ability to use the drone for important media and live stream purposes, therefore the Mini 3 Pro compatibility issue in the future may not futureproof this overlooked but important feature?

Thanks!

I really hope so as i want to be able to use my goggles again without the P4P in play, but because the rubber stopper says Host, i am not hopeful unless it means Host Out, if so then i think its a real possibility

Damn, as per the manual, the Host port is for a cellular module, the main USB-C port is for charging and connecting to the computer, therefore no HDMI

Hello there David Martin Graff. Good day and thank you for reaching out. I am sorry to say that the DJI RC for the DJI Mini 3 has no HDMI Port. The three inputs under the DJI RC are as follows the USB-C Port for charging and connecting the remote controller to the computer, the microSD card Slot for inserting a microSD card and a Host Port for connection the DJI Cellular Module which needs to be purchased separately. Thank you.

Its a pretty poor shame, Stephen, once again, those with DJI goggles cannot use them with the latest drone. Whilst there is the RC Pro with HDMI out, not many can justify £850 GBP on a controller just so they can use their goggles, that has fast become a very expensive paperweight

Can RC Pro be used to control Mini 3 Pro?
I ask because that would be a way to use the Mini 3 Pro with goggles.  Otherwise I’m not interested. I find the screen on the remote too small.

It looks like that will be for a cellular dongle not available in the western world.

It’s a shame the DJI product development team didn’t provide for some way to have HDMI out with the DJI RC.  With the 5.5” display already a major component of the controller, it would have seemed feasible to have provided a HDMI output port on the controller for a very small cost.  Violà, another viable feature the DJI marketing team could have claimed in their marketing of the DJI Mini 3 “Pro” and it’s DJI RC product.  Another missed opportunity by DJI, by not listening to their focus groups or customers.

I literally can’t believe there is no HDMI out or even a work around. Shocked to say the least.

Perhaps its a processing issue, namely the CPU used isn't powerful enough, just guessing though, i cant see any other way as to why they didn't include it, after all, USB-C can carry the HDMI signal, all we would have needed was a USB-C to Mini HDMI adapter for my DJI Goggles at least. Unless they can add a HDMI module like they did with the P4P????

Hi  not that tech savvy. What is a cellular module and how does it benefit from connecting to the c port near the sd slot. Cheers.

If i was to guess, so that you can download maps when out and about and maybe upload to DJI, the latter is a stretch though...

Surely just set your phone up as a hotspot and tether  to the RC?

I assume the idea of this is more for advanced users who may need the cellular built in, most of us will use a hotspot.

Hi, about the USB C Host port, I was looking for the DJI celular module on DJI site, there is nowhere to be found, for my Mini 3 Pro. I found on different site but its compatible with the DJI Mavic. Whats the point for that port if the product doesn’t exist? I do need the module so I wont have to always use my phone as hotspot. Does the product exist? Or will it ever exist? Or is it compatible the one I found from Mavic with my controller?

Its not for using the internet from a sim card. But the product does not exist for the Mini 3. I could find the Dji celular module but only for the Mavic which I have no ideea if its compatible with this RC, I guess not. I don’t understand why they put that Host module, much better they make a sim module build in the remote. Its strange.

Wow, so a cellular module is somehow more useful to more people than an HDMI port?
Not really sure about DJI wisdom there.

Well 2 USBC ports exist...DJI needs to make one of those USBC to HDMI compatible.

I am not sure if its now possible, it may be hardware reliant, an extra chip or sommat, basically we've been given a hard no, not even a maybe in the future

Since the mini 3 transmits the video to the controller is there any device that can intercept this signal and output it to goggles.  Just a thought

There is a workaround with the non-pro rc. Just connect a small android tablet with a hdmi port. Teclast 8 inch is the smallest tablet that should fit the controller though..

To be honest dji is donkeyballz for not adding support. If they wouldve added support for the v2 goggles id be spending 1400 euros on the dji fpv right now, but instead im gonna spend it on a gopro+cinewhoop combo.

I would hope not, since that would compromise safety and performance, not mention ruin the entire drone flying hobbyist experience.

Can you give a model number for the tablet with HDMI out, please, as I cannot find one?
