DJI New product Release - A2 Flagship Multirotor Controller

This just in! DJi releases it's new flagship MR controller the A2!

DJI is pleased to announce a new flagship multirotor controllerm it's called the 'A2". superseding the Wookong family, the A2 sticks closely to the DJI's tradition of wowing customers with high specs, but it also innovates dramatically in a couple of key areas, which DJI hopes will give it an edge over the competition.

High end of the high End

inherited from the technology of DJi's Wookong series controller, the A2 offers you a brand new flight experience with a new design philosophy.

Precise position hold in extreme environments

With the new generation GPS module, the multirotor will have more accurate position and altitude lock even in semi closed environment.

High accuracy and anti-vibration characteristics

Hovering accuracy is improved by the upgraded IMU whose anti-vibration characteristic is significantly improved. With the A2, flying a multirotor will be as easy as driving a car.

Built-in 2.4ghz DESST Receiver

The A2 has a built-in 2.4ghz DESST receiver which greatly simplifies the system complexity and improves the security of the remote control system.

The A2 is compatible to the following receivers:

  • Futaba FASST series Receivers
  • JR/SPEKTRUM receiver with 2-way DSM2 satellite interface
  • Traditional receiver with DJI DBUS ADAPTEr module

Flexible extension capability

The A2 is equipped with a minimum of twelve output channels, which allown users to greatly extend the advantages of the A2

Remote parameter adjustment enabled

The A2 provides assistant software for iOS devices (Bluetooth 4.0). You can adjust parameters at any time on your mobile device, using only an LED indicator with a built-in Bluetooth module, which makes it easier and convenient. It uses low power Bluetooth to minimize the power consumption of your mobile device. It is easy to use and will automatically save your last connection records. The password mechanism ensures your link is safe. Parameters can be automatically synchronized to the Cloud Server and can be restored immediately when you change your mobile device.

Upgraded PMU

The power management unit (PMU) is upgraded for teh A2 to solve the high power consumption. it contains two power outputs for the entire A2 system and receiver separately, a battery voltage monitor and two CAN-Bus interfaces.

Duel CAN-Bus system

The A2 system has a duel CAN-Bus design, which means that the system data throughput will be doubled and the extensibility is improved.

Advanced friendly Features

  • Motor Test
  • Power lock when connect assistant software
  • Inverted Nose-in Return-to-home
  • Compass error alarming

Lets take a look at the SPECS:

We will report more information when we can get it!

I like the dual CAN bus, it's like USB - you can't have too many ports.

Yawn .. The only meaningful improvement is the decreased vibration sensitivity. A fancy way to step around the serious issues with there other controllers.

.... Still no data logging ... (which would increase warranty liabilities so you'll never see that)

Sorry, that was me. I was rushing to get the information out and I only had some jpegs to work from (ie: I had to re-type all the information). The DJI web page was not available at the time I started this article.. So during my rush, I let my left hand get in front of my right hand.

But my heart was in the right place! Get the news to the people!

Contacted DJI about an angle question in relation to waypoints, tech didn't know his *ss from his elbow so I went with a PX4. Not a budget question, just needed a feature and a confirmation. DJI blew it so fancy cases won't get my business. and BTW their North American CEO (or whatever they've decided to call him) would make a stellar ShamWow rep!
