Instead of using the OTG cable can I connect a micro USB to micro USB cable instead?  Or in my case it would actually be micro USB to usb-c...

Thanks!

No, there's some magic that happens in the OTG adapter that a straight cable doesn't do. For a better explanation see this:

As well, it is important the OTG cable is on the RC side, not the phone side.

This is what I bought but I thought that won't work. Don't you need OTG with dongle? I found out OTG has microchip inside the connector to activate host mode.

From what I'm reading on the RC Groups forum, the OTG method may soon become extinct.

I purchased two OTG cables from Amazon for less than $6 and they work perfectly - much, much better than connecting using wireless.

That is correct, must have the OTG chip.
