Hi Guys
Can anyone recomend a longer micro to micro usb cable so i can connect my tablet up to the rc as the one supplied is too short but fine for my mobile phone?
Thanks

When I was looking for a shorter 1 foot cable for my P3 I must have looked at about a bazillion different USB cables on Amazon!  They have right angle, left angle, electroluminescent as well as adapters of every configuration.

You can use any quality Micro-USB cable.  I usually purchase the Sabrent brand cables from Amazon.  They hold up well & come in multi-packs in black or white at a reasonable price.  They have 1', 3', & 6' lengths.  There are packs with all of a single length & packs that include a variety.

I got this one because I use a phone mount that holds the phone above the controller like a tablet.

Personally, I prefer the full sized USB port located just beneath the mobile device holder arms rather than the micro port on the left side of the remote.  Lots of folks have posted that it's a better and more secure way to connect mobile to remote.

In fact, I could be mis-remembering, but I think I've seen a DJI mod post somewhere on the forum that if you're connecting a TABLET (i.e., instead of a phone), you're actually SUPPOSED to use the full sized USB port instead of the proprietary (rectangular) "Micro USB" DJI connector on the side of the RC. I believe they also caution to make sure you disconnect the micro port / device _before_ connecting a device to the main USB port, and vice versa.

Wazch for the micro USB orientation on both ends fitting the way you want to have the angles!

only convenience would suggest using the bottom port.  they are both the same usb standard, just different connector and interlinked, thus the reason you can't use both at the same time.
