The DJI Multilink wireless connector connects the Inspire 2 master remote with up to 3 additional controllers. The new Multilink allows slave networks to form a star network with the master controller as the hub, this allows aerial filmmakers more options in camera control and in-flight monitoring.
The system has been designed to work exclusively with the Inspire 2 and Cendence remote controllers. The slave controllers can wirelessly send commands to the aircraft through the master controller and receive images and video signals from the aircraft directly.
With a dual-band operating frequency of 2.4 GHz or 5.8 GHz, the slave controllers can maintain a steady connection to the master controller at distances of up to 150m from each other, which allows for efficient filming even in the least ideal environments. The latency between the master controller and the slave controllers is as low as 2.5ms (5.8G) / 3.7ms (2.4G), allowing for a reliable live-feed of the aircraft’s camera to additional monitors.
The DJI Multilink will retail for $99 USD and $282 USD for a combo that includes 3 Multilinks. The new product is available today from the DJI store, DJI flagship stores and authorized dealers in the US, Europe, and mainland China.
