DJI Cendence

Over the last few days I have been very lucky to able to spend some time with DJI Cendence controller coupled with CrystalSky on the Inspire 2, I must state first of all that this is pre release hardware and software so some things may change a little on the final product but this is late in the day and I would not expect to see anything major though

After setting up and testing its features for a few days I can say I am honestly very impressed so far, the Inspire 2 standard RC design dates back to the original Inspire remote and it's clear that was built with ease of use with an touch based app driven product in mind, simple straight forward controls that allows you to get the basics done, as time has gone on more feature have been added and with camera such as the X5 Series there is now a need for a more dedicated feature rich controller and the Cendence is just that, it brings all the app based features and option back to your finger tips at a touch of a button with out the need to move off the controls.

The Controller

The Cendence controller has been specifically designed to be used with the Inspire 2 and M200 Series, the layout is user friendly and comfortable to hold, it feels solid and well build and like most recent DJI products the overall impression is the this is a quality piece of equipment, since the Mavic Pro especially DJI have really been kicking it out the park in this area and it shows here again.

In my first blog post I looked at the Micro Vector and its hardware, connections and some installation, In this blog I wanted to look at the Software and some of the features around that.

The Vector and Micro Vector is an impressive flight controller with a large number of features you just don't see in anything else, it has a very wide model support and offers some fantastic features for both fixed wing and quad users, if your flying for FPV then the Vector is an absolute must to get no matter if plane or quad.

My origonal blog looking at the Micro Vector is here

The Firmware & Control Software

Unlike almost all of the other flight controllers in this class the Vector has a very interesting feature, that is its does not run Betaflight, Cleanflight or any of those other community driven autopilots, Eagletree Systems have developed their own in house flight autopilot and accompanying software, this brings some massive benefits that they can vertically integrate their hardware and software and develop it exactly the way they want.

The other intresting fact is the controller can be entirely configured by the OSD if you have a screen or googles and you do not actually need to use any PC based software at all other than to update the firmware however I do find the computer based configuration quicker and easier.
