Which DJI Remote?

Which DJI Remote Control Do I Have

DJI have several remotes, and making sure you know which one you are using will make it easier to select the right accessories, and make sure the remote you have is compatible with your drone!   As we get lots of questions, and with new remotes being released – we figured a bit of a ‘which remote do I have’ guide might be handy! 

So here goes…   We will start with the newest remotes, and work our way backwards.

The DJI RC Remote – this remote control has been released in May 2022, along side the DJI Mini 3 Pro drone.   It has a display, but is a simpler remote than some of the others on the market for the higher end drones.   At time of writing – we really do not know if it will be compatible with drones other than the DJI Mini 3 Pro in the DJI range (but we will try to update this if we find out more).

The DJI RC Pro Remote – released in around October 2021, along with the DJI Mavic 3 range.  It initially came standard with the Cine version, but is now available stand alone and with the standard DJI Mavic 3 as well.   Compatible with the DJI Air 2s also – and there have been some bundles sold with the DJI Air 2s and RC Pro as well.   This remote has a lot more functionality, and a brighter screen than the newly released DJI RC – but is also a lot more expensive! 

The DJI RC-N1 Remote – released inline with the DJI Air 2, this is compatible with the DJI Air 2, Air 2s, Mini 2, DJI Mavic 3, DJI Mavic 3 Cine and the DJI Mini 3 Pro.    This remote has NO display, but you can easily use a smart phone connected in – or with an option tablet holder – a tablet to allow a larger display.

The DJI Smart Controller Remote – getting a bit older now, this was the initial ‘remote with display’ that DJI released to be compatible with the DJI Mavic 2 series (both the pro and the zoom), and then was also compatible with the DJI Air 2, Air 2s and Mini 2.   These are now END OF LIFE from DJI – so finding new product is quite difficult – but lots around second hand
