After first teasing it back in September 2018, DJI has officially announced the pricing and availability of Multilink for its Inspire 2 and Cendence controllers.

The new Multilink accessory connects a single master remote with up to three additional controllers. This setup 'allows slave networks to form a star network with the master controller as the hub, offering aerial filmmakers more options in camera control and in-flight monitoring,' according to the press release.

It features dual-band functionality for operating at 2.4GHz or 5.8GHz with the ability for the slave controllers to be up to 150m / 500ft away from the master controller. DJI claims the latency between the master and slave controllers is as low as 2.5ms and 3.7ms for the 5.8GHz and 2.4GHz bands, respectively.

The Multilink accessory for Inspire 2 Cendence controllers is being sold on DJI's online store for $99 a piece with the option to purchase a pack of three for $282, a savings of $15.

About the Multilink

The new DJI Multilink connects with the Inspire 2 and Cendence remote controllers to create a master-slave network with up to three additional slave controllers. The slave controllers connected to Multilink form a star network with the master controller as the main device. The slave controllers can wirelessly send commands to the aircraft through the master controller and receive images and video signals from the aircraft directly.

With a dual-band operating frequency of 2.4 GHz or 5.8 GHz, the slave controllers can maintain a steady connection to the master controller at distances of up to 150m from each other, which allows for efficient filming even in the least ideal environments. The latency between the master controller and the slave controllers is as low as 2.5ms (5.8G) / 3.7ms (2.4G), allowing for a reliable live-feed of the aircraft’s camera to additional monitors.
