just updated to the latest firmware, dji 1.00.0800, running the app version 4.1.18 on my IPhone 7, and now when I connect the OTG cable to my remote it will continuously connect and disconnect over and over again, cycling between connected and disconnected about very two seconds, until it loses connection altogether. It will do this even if the phone Wi-Fi and Bluetooth is off.
This is a new OTG cable I got off amazon that previously worked. I’m guessing it’s the update. Can anyone confirm?

The below is taken from moderators on other "OTG threads"

Hi there, so far, we sill do not recommend to use the OTG connection since it is not supported by DJI. Please connect the RC to the drone wirelessly.

Hi, sir. Please use wifi connection as OTG cable is not supported now and some problems exist when users use the cable. Thanks for your attention. Have a nice flight!


But.....

Hi, sir. Please note that OTG cable is not supported now. But our engineers are working on that. Thanks for your attention.

downgrade to .701 then!
As long DJI is telling us, "they working on the issue", I wait for a firmware and a App WITH OTG functionality!

I still dont understand the system to push people to connect a phone/tablet via wifi to a device in 5cm distance, but in the same moment telling us to switch off all other wifi devices around you because of possible interferences!!

Hi, GTR. Please note that we recommend users use wifi connection instead of OTG cable. Thanks for your feedback and support.

But it was working on androids before 4.1.18.
And still is, with 4.1.14/15

But if any problems occur don't blame DJI.

I updated the firmware and I can confirm that the OTG cable works on the Android DJI Go 4 ( Version 4.1.15), however at the first time I was unable to connect, the app was running oddly. At first the icon 'RC Connected' confirms that is plugged ok, but when I push the 'Fly' button, the next HUD display said it was Disconnected. After stopping the app a few times, it worked ok.

iPhone 6 via OTG, new firmware, old App – works great. Best picture transfer I've ever had. Wi-Fi is also good, but by far not as over OTG. However, only in my office. Lot of Wi-Fi and BT mice here...

Thanks for reporting back.  Guess we roll up to 0800 FW then.  

Im really hoping when .22 of the app drops they have given us back otg telemetry for android.

Did a flight test this week, v4.1.18 all wifi - only got 400m before low signal warnings popped up, then full disconnect and rth at 800m out.   Went to otg and v4.1.15 I got out to 2500m.  This is a CE region FYI.  

I wish the fanboys would stop telling us that we dont need OTG ... GRRRRR
