Turning off your DJI remote controller is a relatively easy process. However, it is important to note that different DJI models have slightly different ways of turning off each remote controller. In most cases, the power button should be pressed and held to turn off the remote.
Hello folks! My name is Lavelle and I am a professional drone pilot and a long-time drone enthusiast. I have been using DJI drones for both professional and recreational uses for the past ten years or so.
In this article, I will cover the precise steps to take to turn off your DJI remote controller. I will also discuss the powering cycle and provide you with some final thoughts.
How to Turn Off DJI Remote
Here is a step-by-step guide to turning off your DJI remote controller.
Step 1. On most DJI model drones, you turn off the remote controller by pressing and holding the power button down for a couple of seconds.
In some cases, you may have to press the power button once, release it, then press and hold it a second time.
However, you should first turn off the drone. There is usually a power button located on the bottom of the drone. Hold the button for a couple of seconds to power it off.
Step 2. The next step is to turn off the remote controller. There is typically a power button at the top right corner of the controller. Press and hold it for a couple of seconds to turn it off.
On some models, you need to press the power button once and then release it. Then press it a second time and hold it for approximately two seconds and then release it.
Step 3. As I mentioned earlier, different models have different power button locations. If the power button on the controller is not on the top right corner, it may be found on the front face of the controller (on models such as the Mavic Air 2 and Air 2S).
The power button for the drone may also be in a different location on these models. Look at the center of the drone battery for the power button on these models.
How to Turn On DJI Remote
Turning on the DJI remote controller is similar to turning it off. Locate the power button for the specific model that you have and hold and press it down for a couple of seconds to turn the remote controller on.
Again, on some models, you may have to press it once, release it, and then press it a second time, holding it for a couple of seconds and then releasing it.
Turning the remote controller on or off is a relatively simple process. Depending on the drone model that you have, the power button for both the drone and the controller may be located in different positions.
Typically, holding the power button down for a couple of seconds will turn the controller off and on. In some instances, you may have to press the power button once, release it, and then press and hold it the second time, to turn it off or on.
