DJI Have announced a new remote controller compatible with the Inspire 2 and M200 Series.

Cendence Remote Controller


The new Cendence remote controller is DJI’s first multi-platform controller for professionals who need versatility, efficiency and personalization at their fingertips. Its intuitive ergonomic design fits perfectly in your hands, allowing easy access to programmable function buttons and dials.

Users can program and store customized button configurations for different flight and shooting options, and can use two dials to adjust the pitch and yaw of the gimbal at the same time. With Cendence, pilots have instant access to functions like ISO, sharpness, shutter speed, focus and more, without navigating the touch menu settings on their mobile device. Cendence features built-in SDI and HDMI video transmission ports for live HD broadcast and streaming applications, and can be easily adapted to use DJI’s Lightbridge or WiFi video transmission technology.

The Mavic Pro has two control mode options, the first is the 2.4ghz Ocusync connection that provides the HD low latency link between the craft and the RC, the second is the WiFi mode that allows you to control the craft directly from a smart device with out the RC at al.

Last week I spent some time playing with the WiFi mode and found a few interesting things, below is looking at fist of all the setting then the actual flight behaviour.

Activating Wifi Mode

The Firs thing you need to do is switch the Mavic Pro into Wifi mode, Under the door were the SD card goes there is a switch that allows you to select between WiFi or RC

Once switched into WiFi mode turn on and then go to your WiFi settings screen on your device and search for the network, Your Mavic's WiFi details are located on back of one of the front arms or under the battery.

Once connected you will be able to enter camera view and you will notice things look a little different.

Today DJI has released an updated version of the Phantom 4 called the Advanced

Based on the Phantom 4 design with the same front only avoidance sensors and VSS system and duel IMU redundancy as the Phantom 4 its actually more of a Phantom 4 Pro than the 4 having almost all of the additional features the Phantom 4 Pro brought.


It has the same 20MP Sony EXMOR 1” sensor camera as the Phantom 4 Pro, offering up to 4K 60fps in H264 as well as having H265, Auto Focus, Electronic and Mechanical Shutter in burst shooting.

More Info on the Camera system used can be found here in my other blog post on the Phantom 4 Pro

I just want to have a massive shout out to John at ET for his help last week and exceptional CS on a Sunday as well, I had what I thought was a Vector issue but end up being cheap bloody cable issue.

Could not get video when I got to the field with the Bixler, no osd or anything just blank channels, I bypassed the Vector and it was fine but nothing from it even though this had worked well at home multiple times when building the craft, when I got in I spend a few hours pulling my hair out trying to get it sorted trying everything, FC was located deep in the hull so had to use an extension on the video out to the VTX to get it to fit and I did try 4 different cables yet nothing so was left with assuming it was the FC, I shot over an email to Eagle Tree late Sunday afternoon here in the uk expecting he would respond Monday and he responded almost instantly, walked me through some tests back and forth on email but still no joy and suggested one last thing to try that meant pulling it all out as it would be a bad FC otherwise and would need to be replaced.

Once it was out I was able to get to the main cables and sure enough it worked, can't believe I have 4 brand new servo extensions that were faulty as I tried swapping them when it was in the plane but sure enough after investigating they are all bad, looks like they have crimped the pins not soldered and they are all bad in one way or another, unbelievable.

Anyway after hours of getting to all back in and direct soldering the camera extensions it's all good.

Thanks John and Eagle Tree Systems for the help it was appreciated and again outstanding service.
