ADU 1322: Can I Use the DJI Smart Controller with Other DJI Drones – Like the Phantom 4 Pro?

Today’s episode is brought to you by Drone U In-person Flight mastery classes. If you’re looking to enhance your flight skills (and who among us doesn’t need to enhance our flight skills), we are hosting a day of flight training through our Flight Mastery Course. Our Flight Mastery course is a training based on our obstacle course built from 12 exercises to build confidence in student’s ability to fly and make educated decisions in flight. The primary goal of the class is to teach students the strategies and techniques we’ve learned over the past several years that will enable students to fly with confidence and in a way that mitigates risk while pushing themselves to be the best pilot possible. Join us today !!

On today’s show we discuss about controllers and their compatibility with drones across models and generations.

Our question for today is from Duane who would like to use his controllers from DJI across different DJI models. Thanks for the question Duane. In this short episode we go over compatibility of drone and drone controllers. We first discuss about smart controllers, their use and if their internal workings allow compatibility. We then go over when controllers can be used to fly other drones and lastly inform how pilots can assess the compatibility of their controllers and drones.

Tune in today to listen to the detail and learn more about the compatibility of your drone and controllers!!
