In another quiet release DJI have finally provided a solution to one of the M600 and A3 users biggest complaints, switches and channel mapping options when using non DJI gimbals on a M600 or A3 setup.
While the Inspire 1 design based Rc on the M600/LB2 works very well when using DJI’s own gimbal and cameras it’s a massive frustration for users who want to use their own options with no ability for physical switches and proper channel mapping of the ports on the flight controller.
Well to get around this DJI have released the Matrice 600 Series – Remote Controller Channel Expansion Kit
This is an add on that connects to the RC to give 8 physical switch and potentiometer options.
The Matrice 600 Series Remote Controller Channel Expansion Kit is compatible with the Matrice 600 series remote controller and includes eight knobs/switches. More control functions will be available after channel mapping in DJI Assistant 2.
It appears you are required to change the rear IO module on the remote as well
Currently only supporting the M600 this update will hopefully come to the A3/ Lightbridge 2 versions as well.
It’s available from DJI now for £226 in the U.K.
You can purchase the M600 & Accessories from the DJI store
