Hi:  I received my new Mavic Air today.  The cables supplied seem to be for phones.  They are short.  How do I connect an iPad mini 4?

Does the MA remote have normal USB connector underneath? If it does you can connect from  that to the iPad mini or you can buy a longer right angle micro usb to lightning cable...

I am just using the charging cable comes with the ipad mini 4. Connect it to the bottom of the remote controller.

P.S. Sorry! I misread you are talking about mavic air. I am not sure if the controller has a usb port on the underneath. You can check it though.

I'll try that, there is a USB on the controller. Thanks.

Thanks, yes, I may have to buy a longer right angle cable.

I received my mavic air today and the ipad mini doesn't look like its software is capable. I've used my mini 4 with mavic pro with no problem, but in list of aircraft, it does not list the mavic air

Make sure you have the correct app installed. DJI 4 Go for aircraft P4 and later and not P4 and before. That's the only time I've seen it where it does not list the appropriate aircraft.

Hi Dennis, you can use your original lightning cable for the connection. Plug the cord in the bottom USB port, please note to remove the left cable first when connecting. Hope it helps.

OK, I will do that.  I will look for a shorter cable later, but for now that will work.  Thanks!

Today I used the USB out of the controller to my iPad mini 4 and it worked great.  I wonder if you should uninstall the DJI app and try again.

You need to update the DJI Go 4 App. The Mavic Air part of the App needs to be on you Ipad. The Mavic Pro Part of the App will not run the Mavic Air

Connect your Ipad to the Internet, Go to Apps Store, Tap on Updates, Scroll down to DJI Go 4 and update the App. When you launch the App you will now see a new front splash screen and the Mavic Air Portion of the App will be installed.

Once all is plugged in and connected to your Mavic Air and powered up you might need to pull out and then plug in the Cable connecting the controller to you Ipad.

Also you will need a recent version of IOS on your Ipad.

I am using an Ipad Min 3 and it works fine so a mini 4 will be even better (You need later than IOS 9 however which you will have on a mini 4)

This should get you up and running
