If you are not necessarily familiar with the DJI brand nomenclature, the variant numbers and the price difference may in some cases seem unclear. Notably the difference between the DJI Mini Pro 4 RC-N2 packs at €799 and the RC 2 version at €999.
In fact, the drone contained in the pack is the same in both cases . The only thing that really changes is the remote control. The cheapest pack includes a cheaper RC-N2 control – which relies on your smartphone to stream video and check the status of the device.
The RC 2 control is more integrated, it directly displays the video and status of the drone on the drone. controller screen. In both cases the range is up to 20 km when ideal conditions are met thanks to the improved O4 transmission system.
