DJI Cendence Remote Controller

Right, haha, you're funny. I meant is there some kind of notice within given the controller that it's connected and functioning properly.
Nope. The antenna is passive and can't communicate with the controller.
Reminder: Never turn on or use the remote without antennas.You will burn the sending unit from the remote!

Update V 02.00.0090

Patch Antenna

The latest Cendeice update now will show when the Patch antenna is connected, some things you need to be aware of before this update is you should connect the Patch antenna to the RC BEFORE you update, the Patch has firmware onboard that needs updating.

After updating the Cendence and Patch it should now show as connected in the bottom status bar on the screen, if it does not show as connected after this update then you patch is likely faulty and you should open a ticket with DJI and get it replaced.

Focus - Now improved and does work with the X4S as well as other lenses for the X5S giving much better control

Side Sliders - These are now programable to allow you to control and crafts input response, they can be programmed to Throttle, YaW or Pitch and Roll and allow you to really slow the craft and its responded back at a quick slide of the leaver.

For those who were on the early 30 firmware this will now also allow you to swap the camera controls and properly calibrate all the knobs.

I would advise to calibrate this RC fully after this update.

how do you calibrate a remote controller ? also , this update i can can just plug in the remote controller to assistant
Go into RC Settings in DJI Go 4 and choose Calibration.

As for using Assistant 2 no it’s only upgradable via DJI Go 4 and DJI Pilot App

DJI CENDENCE review shows Camera settings on Cendence LCD displaying: ISO, Shutter etc. How is this setup?

The LCD on the Cendence is pictured in a review actually displaying the Shutter, Aperture, ISO etc. which they remarked was a great shortcut to going through the menu on whatever display you are using with the RC. How do I set that functionality up on the Cendence?

First of all Editor if you want to bundle this into a single thread for the Cendence no problem, I posted a new one as that was more about something it should not have been imo.

Hi All, Ok this going to be a big one so sorry in advance, this week has been a crazy one for me with the Inspire 2 finally coming and all, however I actually received 3 packages not two , DJI were extremely kind enough to send me over Cendence to have a play with and test and feed back on now I have the Inspire 2, I wanted to share some info and some of my initial thoughts, but again sorry this is along one. .


Over the last few days I have been very lucky to able to spend some time with DJI Cendence controller coupled with CrystalSky on the Inspire 2, I must state first of all that this is pre release hardware and software so some things may change a little on the final product but this is late in the day and I would not expect to see anything major though from a hardware point of view.


After setting up and testing its features for a few days I can say I am honestly loving it, the Inspire 2 standard RC design dates back to the original Inspire remote and it's clear that was built with ease of use with an touch based app driven product in mind, simple straight forward controls that allows you to get the basics done, as time has gone on more feature have been added and with camera such as the X5 Series there is now a need for a more dedicated feature rich controller and the Cendence is just that, it brings all the app based features and option back to your finger tips at a touch of a button with out the need to move off the controls.

The Controller

The Cendence controller has been specifically designed to be used with the Inspire 2 and M200 Series, the layout is user friendly and comfortable to hold, it feels solid and well build and like most recent DJI products the overall impression is the this is a quality piece of equipment, since the Mavic Pro especially DJI have really been kicking it out the park in this area and it shows here again.

Its powered by the same 2S 4920mah smart battery that CrystalSky uses, It does still have the built in charge circuit like all of the remote before it so this does mean you can charge packs either in the remote or in the Crystalsky charge station so your able to fly and charge other packs at the same time.

In the centre of the main body you have a small LCD screen that shows flight critical data such as aircraft speed, height and power levels, this means you can fly with the Go app in full screen mode and still see critical flight information.


Sticks and Buttons

Looking at the feel of the controller I find gimbals are similar to other DJI controllers and are very responsive, the sticks move smoothly and response is precise, they do have adjustable springs via four holes in the bottom but I found that it shipped with just the right amount of tension.

The sticks them selves are topped quality machined metal that both grippy and finger friendly, height is adjustable as you would expect with any modern controller, overall the main control placement is very good, it's comfortable to use and buttons and knobs are located easily with in normal reach so you don't have to move your hand off the controls.


On the controller you see there is a wealth of buttons that you can program to control a number of both craft and app related features, some of the buttons on the controller are pre programmed for dedicated features like Menu, RTH,Pause and are marked as such, the rest are labelled C or B buttons and these can be set to things such as closing wind alerts, toggle map and live feed screens, focus and exposure metering as well as options like changing radio frequency and turning the LEDs on and off, there are also some other fixed feature buttons and knobs on Cendence like Record,Shutter and Focus on the RH corner, you also have the camera Yaw and Pitch controls rocker wheels on either side too.





Underneath the controller you have the 2 usual C triggers that are programable as before but DJI have added two new smaller C buttons further up, these can all be mapped just like the other buttons on the controller, down the side you will find two additional programable sliders mounded into the grip, one located each side.



On the left side you have the usual DJI controller changing connector below the runner cover, this accepts input from the Inspire 2 and other DJI chargers just like the standard controller


At the bottom you have a cooling vent as well as two screw bosses for mounting to a tray or other support mounts, there are a further two mounting posts located underneath as well.


Integrated Focus Control

One of the big new features is a dedicated focus control knob, this is located just above the the LCD screen for X4s and X5S users, this knob is very smooth with good level of restriction to prevent accidental changes, it is setup to be endless and clickless for very fine tuning of focus control, further to this next to the LCD you have 4 pre programmed camera settings buttons for Ev, ISO, shutter ect that are used in combination with the rotary selector on the rh side.
