During our trip, we worked under very harsh conditions, drove on bad roads, filmed in extreme heat on the Massingir Dam, Mozambique and on the ocean. Even though it is built like a tank, I kept my DJI Copilot safely in a B&W Outdoor Case. When it comes to data, rather be safe than sorry.
Battery and charging
The DJI Copilot battery lasted for three days before having to recharge it. Luckily, we found power points at some of the locations where we filmed. Charging was a very easy process: I just plugged the USB to USB-C cable into my iPhone’s charging block – easy does it!
Manage files from your phone
The Copilot BOSS app (App Store/Google Play) is also a brilliant feature: You can connect your phone to the DJI Copilot to manage the folders and even view files on the drive as needed. I could even download some of the clips to my phone for sharing on social media. This was incredibly helpful and efficient.
The file management system works according to dates which makes it very easy to locate your files. All you need to know is the date on which you filmed the clip you are looking for.
Clear LCD status screen
Another great feature is the screen on the hard drive itself. It is very clear to see what is going on while you are doing your backups and you can see clearly even in harsh sunlight which is a big plus!
The DJI Copilot has quickly become a tool that our team simply cannot go without. It enabled us to shoot as much footage as we needed to without worrying about storage limitations and we never had any worries about keeping our files safe. I highly recommend this product to anyone who needs stable storage solutions on the go wherever you are.
