So the event is over and nobody got to order a DJI Spark or Goggles 🙂 -So what exactly was covered in the event?
1: The Ronin 2
DJI released a new Ronin and it looks freaking ace if you are in the market for one. No price for it yet but expect it to be similar or more than the original.
2: DJI Cendence Controller
The Cendence remote controller was custom-built for the Inspire 2. However, it also offers compatibility with other professional grade DJI products. To improve overall control efficiency, Cendence provides up to five analog control channels and over ten customizable buttons. The design of Cendence also offers antenna interchangeability. A high-gain antenna, or DJI’s Tracktenna, can augment the power of DJI Lightbridge technology, significantly increasing overall anti-interference and video downlink quality.
Cendence will set you back £949 ( $999 ).
3: DJI Tracktenna
Tracktenna is a range and signal quality booster designed for use with the Inspire 2 and other high end DJI drones. Tracktenna’s directional array antenna transmits high-gain signal at 2.4 GHz or 5.8 GHz. At 5.8 GHz, signal reception is 32 times stronger, with up to 100 times reduced interference. Using industry-leading circuits, a low noise amplifier, and a power amplifier, Tracktenna compensates for cable power loss quickly and easily. When used with DJI’s Cendence remote controller and Inspire 2 drone, Tracktenna reaches its full potential, transmitting data at 10 Mbps within a 2 km range for optimal image transmission. When long-distance flight is required, Tracktenna offers a maximum transmission range of up to 10 km.
By using a gyroscope, accelerometer, compass, barometer, and GNSS module, Tracktenna will determine the antenna’s currentheading and attitude. Along with remote controller data transmitted via the CAN bus port, Tracktenna will detect the aircraft’sposition, pointing towards it with its 2-axis gimbal.
4: DJI Crystalsky.
We already knew about CrystalSky from last year but until now we didn’t know the price.. It costs £449 for a 5.5 inch high brightness one, £669 for a 7.85 inch high brightness one and a whooping £949 for the 7.85 inch ULTRA brightness version. On top of this you will need the RC bracket for an extra £75 to attach it to the Inspire 2 RC.
5: DJI Circle
