DJI’s latest remote controller with a built-in display, DJI RC, is now compatible with the tech giant’s flagship Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine drones. While the DJI RC was initially launched alongside the new Mini 3 Pro aircraft, it can now be purchased as a standalone device for $309.

Until now, Mavic 3 users have had only two remote control options: the DJI RC-N1, which requires drone operators to mount their smartphone to their controller, and the DJI RC Pro, which has its own screen but costs almost four times as the DJI RC.

The compatibility for DJI RC has been enabled through firmware v01.01.0000 of the remote controller. This firmware update also adds support to download photos (except panoramas) and 1080p videos to an external SD card.
