DJI's New Master Wheels Lets You Control Ronin in a New (but Old) Way

No more joystick! DJI's Master Wheels gives Ronin users a new (to them) way to control their gimbals.

For users who want more accuracy when controlling the Ronin 2, DJI has come out with Master Wheels, a new control system that utilizes wheels, which many seasoned filmmakers are more familiar with, while also adding a little sophistication to the design and functionality to allow for wireless operation.

It features buttons and dials for recording, speed control, smoothing, and recentering, as well as a modular, 3-axis design, which lets operators assemble it in a way that makes operation more comfortable. You can even go from 3-axis control to 2-axis control if you want. 

Master Wheels will be shipping in June. You're looking at a price of $8000 for the 3-axis version (with Pelican case) and $6000 for the 2-axis version with an option to upgrade.

DJI new slogan should be: "no longer a cheap Chinese knock-off. Now just a Chinese knock-off"

V Stiviano Renee's motto should be "Look what I found on YouTube today"
