I was chatting with a few drone pilots on Facebook last night where I asked the question about MA2’s and Smart Controllers. I was told that there was already compatibility and there had been for approx. six weeks! I wasn’t aware of this. I had already written to DJI support and asked them, but hadn’t received an answer.
This morning, I had the answer, direct from support. Interesting! Here it is;
Thank you for contacting DJI Technical support.
We greatly appreciate your interest in our products!
DJI MAVIC AIR 2 are not yet compatible with DJI Smart Controller.
Our developers are still in the procedure to add the DJI Fly app in DJI Smart Controller.
Your feedback will be definitely cascaded to the concerned team for their further review.
Please stay tuned for more updates through our official website.
Thank you for choosing DJI products.
@custommicros sounds odd! I’m holding off buying the MA2 and SC until they come in a package having had DJI deny all knowledge of a compatibility! I imagine your issues will be addressed in an upgrade soon?
Not sure they will package together as MA2 is seen as consumer drone not pro. One other thing to mention is that they are slow to update the fly app on SC. I am now 2 updates behind, not a massive issue as I bought it to cut out all the messing around setting up phone etc… just switch on and fly.
Having come from inspire1 remote was missing additional functions on the Controller. SC gives back 2nd scroll wheel (used for new zoom function update) plus 2 programmable buttons on the underneath to quickly re-centre gimbal and turn on LED underneath, also pause button ( oh shit !!) Button I call it which pauses any auto function current in use. Download manual and have a look.
You will if you need to install software to support DJI products - controllers/drones/batteries … because there is no software that runs on them.
Also seriously limited for photo editing and even more so for video editing.
