Positive there was the RC-N1 as an choice. however DJI has since discontinued it. That left few choices for Mavic 3 flyers till now. DJI initially packaged the RC distant with the Mini 3 Professional drone, however by increasing the drone fashions it could actually help, the corporate can supply it as an inexpensive accent.
Listening to shoppers who need a extra inexpensive choice, DJI has began by opening up the RC distant to deal with each the usual Mavic 3 and the Cine model ought to customers need an additional distant available to complement the RC Professional.
The RC distant management has a 5.5-inch LCD show and is able to streaming reside video feed at as much as 1080p at 60fps for a distance of as much as 9.3 miles (15km) courtesy of DJI’s O3+ transmission system.
This specific spec is at all times entertaining to incorporate since FAA rules require drones to remain inside line of sight of the operator all through the complete flight.
So whereas it’s nifty that the RC distant has that type of law-abiding person won’t ever be capable to take a look at the bounds of it with out threatening their certification, if they’ve one.
Exterior of its federally mandated overengineered vary, the one different information level the RC distant enjoys is its light-weight .68 pound (309g) heft. At simply over half a pound, pilots gained’t be fatigued holding it throughout long-duration flights.
Make no mistake although, the important thing function right here is that Mavic 3 customers will be capable to use the distant at a price of solely $309, versus the RC Professional distant which prices about 3 times as a lot.
And the one advantage of the RCP is that customers can set up third-party apps that work together with the Mavic 3 Cine. Large whoop. The advantages of the RC far outweigh its seldom-used liabilities.
The RC distant controller is obtainable straight from DJI for a retail value of $309.
