Since the Ma2 and AIR2S supposedly have the same controller I'd like to say yes. I have switched back and forth between my MA2 and Mini2 controller, each having to be paired with the other drone. Not the most inconvenient but unless you're getting a really great deal on drone only it might be worth getting the whole package. If only so that if you break or lose a controller you're not 'out of the game' while waiting on a replacement. Just my 2 cents.
