Great Improvement over the Autel Standard Controller -- Image Transmission Needs Big Improvement

Having only flown Autel platforms, I find the Smart Controller very nice and definitely not too big or heavy – as seems to be the common complaint from those use to other brands.

The Smart Controller routinely provides better turning and gimbal control than can be achieved on the regular Autel Remote controller, and the screen can clearly be seen in the brightest of sunlight.

Needing Improvement: The image transmission range of my Version 2 Smart Controller breaks up at distances my standard controller handled with no problems: the Smart Controller’s Connectivity and GPS signal strength icons show solid full- or near full-strength connectivity during these times when the image transmission totally breaks up and or freezes, thereby rendering the Smart Controller’s utility severely hampered. And should the aircraft become temporarily disconnected from the Smart Controller, it takes a minimum of 5-10 seconds longer for connectivity and useable image transmission to be reestablished than it does on the standard Remote controller. So if you’re thinking of getting the Smart Controller to fly longer distances than can be achieved with the standard Remote controller – don’t count on it no matter what the Autel specification sheet is touting.

Summary: straight out of the box, the Smart Controller has strong pros and worrisome misses. If soon-coming firmware updates can correct the aforementioned problems, I’d gladly give this unit a 5 instead of 3-stars rating.

Minor gripe: the 3-point Chest Harness strap has bare metal connectors which will most likely and quickly scratch off the paint of the Smart Controller at the connecting points. Since I've not really found a need for using the Chest Harness during any full day of flying (from daybreak to dusk), I've not bothered to gen up any additional velcro strap extenders to alleviate this problem. (Given no one is going to be showing off their Smart Controller in equivalent car show setting, but there's no use in needlessly having paint scratched off due to a design oversight.)

Clear and bright

So far I like the smart controller it's size size is nice compared to a cell phone the screen is very bright and and you definitely need to use the strap lose the strap to hang around your neck while controlling it it's pretty heavy.
