This value is for reference only.

Remote Controller

Built into the remote controller is the DJI’s long-range transmission technology OCUSYNC™ 2.0, offering a maximum transmission range of 5 mi (8 km) and displaying video from the aircraft to the DJI GO 4 app on your mobile device at up to 1080p. An on-board LCD screen gives real-time aircraft data information and the detachable control sticks make the remote controller easier to store.Maximum run time: 2 hours and 15 minutes*

Press the propellers down firmly and rotatein the lock direction.


Unfold the front arms and the propellers before the rear ones. All arms and propellers must be unfolded before takeoff.

 Charging the Batteries

Use the provided charger to fully charge the Intelligent Flight Battery before first use

Power Outlet 100 – 240V

Remove the Intelligent Flight Battery

Charging Time: ~1 hour 30 minutes

Charging Time: ~2 hours 15 minutes

Remove the Intelligent Flight Battery

Checking the Battery Levels and Powering On/Off

Press once to check the battery level. Press, then press and hold to turn on/off.Press once to check the battery level on the LCD screen.Press once, then press and hold to turn on/ off the remote controller.

 Preparing the Remote Controller

Unfold the antennas and mobile device clamps, then attach the control sticks.


Place one end of the RC cable to the end of the slot.

Set the antennas parallel to each other

Attach your mobile device within the clamps.

Optimal Transmission Range

  • Ensure the control sticks are firmly mounted.
  • The remote controller cable with the Lightning connector is mounted by default. Use the appropriate cable for your mobile device to connect to the remote controller. When using an iPad or tablet, use the USB port on the remote controller.
  • Do not use the Micro USB and the USB ports simultaneously for linking video.

Preparing for Takeoff

Use your DJI account to activate the aircraft. Activation requires an internet connection.



Before taking off, make sure the Aircraft Status Bar in DJI GO 4 displays “Ready to Go”.

  • Auto Takeoff / Landing
    Auto Takeoff Auto Landing
  • Manual Takeoff / LandingCombination stick command to start/stop the motos

Left stick up (slowly) to take off
Left stick down (slowly) until you touch the groundHold a few seconds to stop the motors

The motors can only be stopped mid-flight when the flight controller detects a critical error.

Remote Controller OperationThe default flight control is known as Mode 2. The left stick controls the aircraft’s altitude and heading, while the right stick controls its forward, backward, left, and right movements. The gimbal dial controls the camera’s tilt.

Press the Flight Pause button for emergency braking during flight.

  • In DJI GO 4

  • Watch the tutorials in DJI GO 4 or at the official DJI website to learn more.
  • Always set an appropriate RTH altitude before takeoff. When the aircraft is returning to the Home Point, you should guide it with the control sticks.

Fly Safe

Avoid flying over or near obstacles, crowds, high voltage power lines, trees, or bodies of water.DO NOT fly near strong electromagnetic sources such as power lines and base stations as it may affect the onboard compass.

DO NOT use the aircraft in adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow, fog, and wind speeds exceeding 10 m/s or 22 mph.

Stay away from the rotating propellers and motors.
