Product Research


Wireless Remote Controller: This DJI wireless remote controller is designed specifically for DJI's Spark mini-drone. It features a dual-band (2.4/5.8 GHz) WiFi signal transmission system, capable of controlling the Spark's flight and gimbal camera at a maximum transmission range of 1.2 miles (2 km). The remote controller also connects to your Apple iOS or Android mobile device wirelessly and displays a live video feed (720p) via the DJI Go 4 app. Its folding clamps allow you to attach your mobile device securely; fitting mobile devices 0.25"-thick and up to 6.3125" long, without a phone case (mobile devices larger than this do not fit the remote controller's device holder).

  • Joystick Control: The wireless remote controller features two joystick controllers to pilot the Spark mini-drone.
  • Live Video Feed: The DJI Go 4 App (for Apple iOS 9.0-up & Android OS 4.4-up) on your connected Apple iOS or Android device provides a live video feed (720p) of the Spark's camera.


  • Press the Pause, Fn, and C1 buttons on the remote controller at the same time to sync the controller with the mini-drone. Once the controller starts beeping, release these buttons. With Spark powered on, press and hold the battery power button. When you hear the Spark beep, release this button - Linking is now complete.
  • The remote controller can only reach its maximum wireless transmission distance (FCC) in wide open areas with no electromagnetic interference and at an altitude of around 120 meters.

Rechargeable Battery: The DJI wireless remote controller features a built-in rechargeable battery. It takes 2 hours to fully charge the remote controller's battery for up to 2.5 hours of operation.
