DJI Releases Multilink for Inspire 2 & Cendence Controllers

DJI has announced pricing and availability for its new Multilink accessory. The wireless connector is now available as a single unit for $99 or as a combo pack with three Multilinks for $282.

Compatible with DJI's Inspire 2 and Cendence controllers, the Multilink can connect with the remotes in order to create a master-slave network with up to three additional slave controllers. The slave controllers can then wirelessly send commands to the aircraft through the master controller, as well as receive images and video directly from the aircraft, providing more camera control and monitoring options for aerial filming and photography. The Multilink supports a dual-band operating frequency of 2.4 GHz or 5.8 GHz between the slave controllers and master controller, enabling a consistent connection at distances of up to 150m apart from one another.
