Hi Susan,

I think we are taking about different cases. It does not fit the DJI Hard Case. I haven't tried in the Fly More Soft Case. I don't use mine and they are in storage.

Hi Brian, sorry for the late response. For the Mavic 2 Protector Case, you may refer to the below pictures to check. For the support of Goggles RE, it will available in the future via the firmware update.
Regarding the connection with the Mac/PC, may I have the screenshot for better assistance? Thank you so much!

Thanks Susan,

The picture helped. I removed the 2 side foam pieces. I don't have the third piece. I bought the first release of the cases. Looks like you have updated the internal foam design. I dont have the Battery hole near the controller or the manuals hole near the rear of the Mavic.

The Chinese panel is below and picture of my different case. I have gotten the Assistant 2 working now. You must power up the controller after it is connected. to the PC / Mac. Helps to read the manual properly. Doh.

Hi there, the DJI Smart Controller is compatible with any DJI drone that uses OcuSync 2.0. For Mavic 2 Enterprise, it will also be compatible in the future, you may visit this link: https://www.dji.com/smart-controller?site=brandsite&from=nav

well thats funny because if you go onto the facebook forums with the DJI guys on there they are saying new firmware will be released approx end of Feb to allow use of M2Enterprise units ?????

So who is right then ?

Dji should produce a smart controller that can support the mavic air as well. To be honest i am a bit disappointed knowing the smart controller are designed only for the latest dji drones..

Hi cristiano1976pt, we sincerely apologize for the unpleasant experience. For DJI Smart Controller, the built-in DJI GO 4 app and the standard DJI GO 4 app will be simultaneously updated. There will be a reminder if the new version is available. If there is any further question, feel free to contact us.

Hi Susan,

What about all of us CrystalSky users, are we just abandoned? Are we expendable?
We're looking forward to an update to CrystalSky to bring it inline with the smart controller. Currently there are a few bugs that need to be ironed out...

I'll be giving it a miss... The Smart controller looks like a great unit, but judging by the lack of support on CS, I imagine that this controller will be just as abandoned as the CS is as soon as some new transmission device is being planned....
I love the M2Z but the CS version of Go 4 needs work... at least release a firmware update which will remove restrictions and allow us to install a generic unrestricted version of Android where we can install the regular Android DJI Go 4 app, this way you'll no longer need to be troubled by releasing CrystalSky updates as we'll use the same app as half of the other users... whats with the restrictions anyway?

I know I know.... DJI... How dare we ask for the device we paid good money for to work as intended, with the promised features without bugs...

With the news today of the FCC reopening the division that handles new device approvals, can we expect to see the Smart Controller anytime soon in the US?

The restriction on the Crystal Sky looks to me that it does not have the Goggle Play infrastructure that is used by DJI GO 4. They have a proprietary equivalent. that's what makes updates slow.

i think this is due to issues in China allowing access to the Play store and allowing the Play infrastructure to update.

It would take a major update from Android 5 to Android 7 with the play infrastructure as they have done with the Smartcontroller.

Thanks Again for your help.

Do you know if we are getting a smart controller icon for our list. Would be nice. Plus Crystal Sky monitors so then we could have a better idea what people are using.

I still don’t understand why they market the controller as displaying 4K at 60 fps but the Mavic 2 only records 4K at 30 fps....Am I going to be able to use this on their next device that records in 4k60?

So why not just put the same OS on CrystalSky as is on the Smart Controller? essentially the Smart Controller is a 5.5" CS monitor connected to a controller.... Same or similar hardware... I think that DJI is having a lend of us...

650 euro is just a little bit expensive.
It's cheaper to buy a Crystal sky monitor, and reuse it with other (future) drones.
And just 1000cdm. My iPhone is 625cdm, and I had compared to a 5.5" CS in the sun. The difference was really really slight. And no GPS (Dynamic RTH).

Crystal sky 469$, mount 79$, charger 30$, regular controller 379$. That totals $957, so how is it a bad value and a crystalsky is cheaper? Pretty simple arithmetic shows you the vale relative to the CS option.

And, it has a 3way switch... is it atti (or positioning) mode?
Just curious, is it, or will it be compatible with the mavic 1 too? Because at first the mavic2 remote was supposed to be compatible too.
I really like it, but I have a mavic one..

It ONLY SUPPORTS OCCUSYNC 2.0.

Been flying with the CS for over a year.  basically same specs. don't really see the need for a pricy upgrade.  if it output recorded in 4k, well then maybe.

It outputs 4k@60

Just put in my purchase for the DJI Smart Controller, looks like the Government Shutdown in the USA has nothing to do with the release of the Controllers, as I live in the USA (California), although I will admit that its pricey, but then again that applies to almost anything these days, not to mention, it was the same argument I made regarding the Mavic 2 Pro, personally, I find these R/C very interesting with a few bells and whistles that the CrystalSky Monitors don't have (currently have the 5.5, and 7.85 Ultra), i'll simply use the C/S monitors for my Spark, Mavic Air, and Phantom 4, and the Smart Controller for the Mavic 2 only, The Mav2 is the one I fly the most, with the Smart Controller, it just means less items to carry around, since the controller fits into the Fly More Carrying Case.

Most people have already invested in all of the above.  so to shell out for something you already have and works perfectly doesn't make a whole lot of sense.  unless your a form factor geek.

Purchased the Smart Controller as soon as I received notification that it was available to purchase in the US...International Fedex shipping from China on Tuesday BUT now it is hung up in Fedfex Memphis waiting Customs Approval...guess they are affected by the Government Shut Down as well...do not understand why DJI would release a device if it was only get hung up in Customs...Anyone else with this shipping Issue?
