DJI RC Plus
DJI RC Plus. Your remote is your link to your drone. It"s how you communicate with it and how you see what it sees. The button layout, screen quality, and ergonomics all contribute to the ease with which you can turn intent into action.
In the past, DJI"s Enterprise fleet RCs were adaptations of the consumer line. DJI RC Plus innovates: This is the first time we"ve developed a controller specifically for public safety teams, inspection teams and commercial drone pilots.
The result is a highly capable and robust RC that simplifies missions. From intuitive physical buttons, to weather protection, here are the top five features of the DJI RC Plus.
An integrated display for greater visibility: Public safety and inspection missions often require adaptability.
In some cases, using a large external monitor is the best way to coordinate efforts and provide situational awareness to commanders. But when greater mobility is required, a high-resolution display built into the RC is ideal.
The 7-inch display built into the DJI RC Plus delivers clear visuals at 1200 cd/m, at a scale that allows pilots to clearly identify points of interest, identify details that might otherwise be overlooked, and navigate more efficiently - even in direct sunlight.
A Weatherproof Remote Control: And in addition to direct sunlight, the DJI RC Plus can withstand a wide variety of weather and environmental conditions.
For several years, DJI"s Enterprise drones have been able to operate in challenging weather conditions. But the same hasn"t always been true for the accompanying RCs - until now.
The new DJI Plus is IP54 rated, making it DJI"s first weatherproof remote control. It is also rated to operate in temperatures ranging from -20°C ~ 50°C.
This means the DJI RC Plus is protected from dust and splashing water and can operate in extreme environments, just like the M30 it controls.
Intuitive physical buttons: A common pain point for pilots is the need to use on-screen commands for vital aspects of a mission. Whether you"re conducting search and rescue, hazardous materials response, or an infrastructure inspection, the last thing you want is to fumble through touchscreen menus to select a crucial feature - especially if weather conditions make it challenging.
DJI RC Plus includes more physical buttons than ever before, allowing pilots to build muscle memory, quickly access important flight features, and enjoy a more seamless flying experience.
Six new buttons have been added and mapped to specific functions according to the camera view being used. With just a little practice and muscle memory, pilots can easily switch between different camera views, zoom in and out, and drop PinPoints, without having to take their hands off the control sticks.
Hot-Swap Batteries: From the ergonomic design to the integrated 7-inch display, everything about the DJI RC Plus is designed to make flying as smooth as possible. This approach extends to another feature of the new remote: hot-swappable batteries.
The DJI RC Plus uses the same WB37 batteries that power the M300"s RC, which lasts nearly six hours of flight time. Now, instead of landing the drone and interrupting missions if the controller runs low on charge, operators can swap in a fresh battery and keep working.
Additionally, the DJI RC Plus can be charged while you use it via its top 65W USB-C port.
Upgradable 4G Enhanced Connectivity Removable Antennas: The DJI RC Plus features a quad antenna design and provides a stable connection with your drone up to 15 kilometers away.
However, for public safety and asset inspections in locations with signal problems, the new DJI RC Plus has two features to optimize connectivity.
The first is the option to remove the top two antennas. This gives teams the ability to attach their own solutions to allow for greater range and clarity of the video feed when interference is disruptive.
The second is the option to add a DJI Cellular Module, which is a 4G dongle that offers connectivity even in remote regions or complex environments with signal interference. Please note that 4G availability varies by country and region.
A Remote Control You Can Trust: As drones begin to play pivotal roles in public safety missions and inspection tasks, it"s important to deploy them alongside the right accessories. The DJI RC Plus was designed from the ground up to meet the needs of emergency responders and asset managers. It"s robust enough to handle dangerous conditions, packed with features to increase situational awareness, and more intuitive to use than any company RC drone in history.
