DJI CrystalSky – Ultra-Bright Drone Video Monitor

DJI CrystalSky – Ultra-Bright Drone Video Monitor

The all new DJI CrystalSky Monitor is a very impressive viewing device for drone pilots of all levels. Prior to officially releasing the CrystalSky, DJI showed off the hot new monitor at a number of events throughout 2017. The good needs is the wait is now over and CrystalSky units are shipping daily from Advexure! This article discusses CrystalSky pricing, availability for the new, highly demanded, aerial video monitor, and other vital information on the CrystalSky’s offering.

Large Supply, Expert Support, Fast Shipping! – Call (424) 317-4450 with any questions!

We are happy to announce that the CrystalSky is now available for order here at Advexure. CrystalSky units are still in limited production. Updates will be made available here and on the product page for each CrystalSky model.

Please be sure to read the latest updates at the bottom of this article.

The drone community has been in dire need of a high quality, lightweight, portable video monitor for drone flying. The DJI CrystalSky Monitor is finally what we’ve all been waiting for. DJI has designed the CrystalSky for outdoor aerial imaging. One of the biggest issues that drone pilots face just about everyday is not being able to see their video feed on their phone or tablet on a bright, sunny day. The CrystalSky Monitor features an ultra-bright screen that is clearly visible in bright sunlight.

How do I order the DJI CrystalSky?

First it is important to note that there are three models of the CrystalSky, each of the models are shown below.

Clicking the title of the model will bring you to the Advexure Store to submit your DJI CrystalSky order.

  • BUY DJI CrystalSky 5.5-inch, High Brightness

    – This model features a smaller 5.5 inch display while still outputting a 1000-nit brightness. Best display monitor for Mavic Pro owners.

  • BUY DJI CrystalSky 7.85-inch, High Brightness

    – The larger display option for the CrystalSky at 7.85 inches. Features 1000-nit of brightness. This is a great aerial drone monitor for the average drone user looking for a brighter display option compared to an iPad.

  • BUY DJI CrystalSky 7.85-inch, Ultra Brightness

    – This model tops out the DJI CrystalSky options and features a 7.85 inch display at a jaw-dropping 2000-nit brightness, more than four times brighter than standard mobile devices. Designed for filmmaking professionals and users flying in during the strongest daylight hours.

DJI CrystalSky Specs

  • It’s extremely bright

    – DJI has given us a small taste of just how bright in their integrated display on the all new Phantom 4 Pro+. The CrystalSky is more than four times brighter than typical devices currently being used for drone flying. Spec’d at 2000 cd/m we should have no problem seeing the CrystalSky on those clear blue sky flying days.

  • Minimal latency

    – This is extremely important for monitors that are playing back real-time video. DJI has integrated an optimized video encoder that provides the smoothest possible playback in real-time with an extremely minimal latency of 180ms. Typical mobile devices have at least a 220ms video decoding latency.

  • Long operating times

    – The 7.85” CrystalSky will feature up to 4-5 hours of operation while the 5.5” will feature 5-6 hours. These operation times far exceed the battery life of comparable mobile devices that are currently used in the drone industry.

  • Dual SD Card Slots

    – Two SD Card Slots allow for the recording of footage directly onto the SD card in the monitor or playing back footage recorded on a Micro SD Card. Files from the Micro SD Cards can also be played back through the HDMI port output on the monitor.

  • HDMI Port & Network Compatibility

    – The CrystalSky’s HDMI Port will allow for up to 4K video to be output to FPV video goggles or other HDMI viewing devices. Built-in Wi-Fi functionality will enable the CrystalSky to connect to Wi-Fi networks.


CrystalSky Mounting Solution for Mavic

Advexure offers two options for Mounting the CrystalSky to your Mavic. Option #1 is the DJI CrystalSky Mavic Mounting Bracket. Option #2 is the MavMount which is a CNC milled mount that provides a very well balanced setup with all sizes of CrystalSky.

CrystalSky Mount for Phantom, Inspire and Matrice

When using the CrystalSky with Phantom, Inspire 1, Inspire 2, and Matrice series remotes you will need the CrystalSky Mounting Bracket (Part 3) which fits on all three remotes.

Mount CrystalSky Monitor to Osmo

To mount the CrystalSky to your Osmo you will need the DJI CrystalSky Osmo Mounting Bracket which is available here at Advexure for $79.

Which DJI drones are compatible with the CrystalSky?

The DJI CrystalSky Monitor can be easily connected to the Inspire 2, Inspire 1 series, Phantom 4 series, Phantom 3 Professional and Advanced, Matrice series and Mavic using the remote controller USB port, as well as the Phantom 3 4K and Phantom 3 Standard over Wi-Fi.

When was the DJI CrystalSky release date?

The DJI CrystalSky was originally announced in mid-November at the Inspire 2 launch and it was announced at the end of April at NAB that the monitor would begin shipping in the coming weeks.

What is the price?

The following is the CrystalSky price for each of the specific models: 5.5-inch, 1000 cd/m2 version for $469; 7.85-inch, 1000 cd/m2 version for $699; and the 7.85-inch, 2000 cd/m2 version for $999.

DJI CrystalSky Availability

The regular 5.5″ has begun shipping from Advexure. The 7.5″ High Brightness CrystalSky model will begin shipping from Advexure beginning in mid to late July, while the latest update from DJI Headquarters is that the 7.5″ Ultra is estimated to begin shipping towards the end of July / early August.

How can I order the DJI CrystalSky Monitor?

    • According to the latest information from DJI HQ they are estimating that the first wave of 5.5″ and 7.85″ High Brightness should begin shipping from our warehouse sometime next week. Until we have documents for the first batch of units inbound we cannot guarantee any estimates or dates DJI is able to provide. Should be soon! 🙂

    • Hi Wallace – Tripod is an option for mounting but most likely we’ll be seeing a mounting solution for the Mavic RC soon so that you can mount directly to the RC, similar to the way third parties have developed mounting solutions for larger iPads and other tablets too large to fit in the device clamps on the bottom of the RC.

      • if crystal sky has a threaded whole on the bottom it could be mounted with a mount that has threads on like the mav mount right, which is what i have.

  1. Will the 7.85″ UltraBright work with the MavicPro Controller? I’m not concerned about the mounting of the monitor to the RC but rather the electrical connections? And, does the CrystalSky have a GPS chip internal, so maps will automatically be downloaded / displayed as they are on my iPad with GPS?

    Thank you

    • Yes, the 7.85″ Ultra Model will work with the Mavic Pro Controller. The CrystalSky has a built-in GPS for positioning. Regarding the downloading of maps, that is done with internet connection as opposed to GPS. You would be able to cache a large map area to the device for the area you are flying so that the maps would be saved on the CrystalSky.
