I was so excited for this remote until I saw the price. I am going to keep on using my iPad mini with my M2P controller, if DJI reduce the price to $450 then I will buy it.

A Mavic Pro controller costs £329
A Crystal Sky display costs £449
£579 for the 2 combined in 1 good looking piece of kit is reasonable yes?

if they offer to exchange with the original controller it will be good option to pay the different

Too expensive, you can literally buy a high end smartphone with that money which is bigger and has about the same brightness plus many more features.

I put normal, because I expected this fro dji, I suppose when I look at the now €1000 euro I spend on my phone every two years or so then I don’t find it expensive, but it is a luxury item, I agree with you , what’s one to do with other RC and the simple fact that we were customers first so to speak is a bit of a shame, I expect with low sales it might drop in price by €100 but not until end of summer.

Way to expensive. My iPad mini 2 works great with my MP and Zoom so I'll stick with that.

DJI should give us an option to trade in our remotes to help offset the cost of the Smart Remote.

The price is a hard pill to digest.  DJI offers a discount if you purchase the combo.   I really like the portability that the RC and screen is integrated.  I owned a Yuneek Typhoon H with integrated screen.  I really loved how easy it was to not deal with connecting the iPad/phone, as well as dealing with shoddy cables that tend to fail at the worst times.

I would think there would be less communication drops between them both which is another positive.

Thankfully it's not for sale here so I can digest all of this.  If it was available now, I would have purchased it on an impulse..

I'd rather spend 30% more and buy the CRYSTALSKY 7.5 with 2000nits.
The control would not make a difference even if one day break.
It would still be cheaper to replace.

I like the versatility of the stock controller/iPad mini setup. The mini cost less, has bigger screen, imo IOS is more stable than Android, can be used with my MPro, M2Pro, and my Tello, and rumor has it there may be an iPad Mini 5 on the way. So I guess I do not see the benefit of the new controller just yet. I sure wish it came standard with the $1700+ M2P kit I just bought. I am a nut for DJI toys, so maybe one day when I have some extra dough lying around...

Rumor of an iPad Mini 5?!?   Shut up!!  I have been so waiting for this!   While I do love my iPad mini teamed up with an anti-glare screen helps, it is still a bit dark.  You bring up a valid point.  iOS has been super stable for me also.   I have heard way too many Android issues (Not dissing Android users, just the DJI app for Android).

I am contemplating on waiting!!  What fears me the most, is when the app crashes on the smart controller, how in the HELL can you power just the tablet portion off and keep the controller powered?  I have never been in the situation in powering off the controller (never needed to).  I know the AC is programmed to RTH, but if you are far out and the signal is sketchy, how fast will it re-sync?

You can power all off and back on it may go to RTH but soon as you reconnect you can take control again, you can also fly without app if your in VLOS which we all should be.

It is worth what folks are willing to pay.

At present, some are clearly happy to pay RRP.

As with everything, price will likely come down over time.

If you want to be a first adopter you will have to pay.

May I suggest to anyone interested in the new controller to wait until DJI officially announce whether or not the new controller will be updateable to any new Ocusync versions in the future.

Otherwise it may be outdated before long.

If DJI already have clarified the above please ignore my comment.

I like the screen in the controller, would be easier to handle, I would think.  But at the current price, I would need to absolutely need to know that it would work with whatever I would be using it with.  It may be worth near what they are asking, IF it worked with ALL models of DJI drones, a DJI Universal controller, yep, then it would be something to have for me.  Hey, I have to dream somewhere

I agree, if it was universal to work with all 3 my drones, sure. But currently, for that price here in New Zealand, I can buy a second hand car. iPhone works awesome thanx!

I would like to see the Controller in the DJI Select Programm. Then it is okay for me.

A Crystal Sky alone costs $450.  I feel you expecting too much for too little.  It's either pony up the money or forget it & fly with the stock remote & your current device.
