Using a Mirco USB cable,  you may need to read the manual first.

What will I found in a manual?
There is no regular way to connect remote controller to PC. Controller has USB micro-A socket, what is quite exotic. We need additional cable USB A male (PC side) to USB micro A male (controller side)
or (wchich is extreamly exotic):
adapter USB C famale to USB micro-A male - to regular PC USB C cable (in a set of Mavic 2 Kit)
It even complicated to explain.

I can the connect the controller to the laptop, and the Flight Simulator seems to "know" a controller is connected -- it asks me to use the controller joystick to select menu options with.  But when I move the joystick, the data signal doesn't go through -- the Flight Simulator is ignoring any joystick input.

I don't think it can, simulator software on win 10 is running fine but connecting my Mavic 2 Zoom controller by usb cable to it just says "charging" when off or "connecting" when on - I guess I have to buy some other software and compatible controller to learn how to fly my zoom without the risk!

The DJI Mavic Pro 2 will never connect to the simulator!!!!  I spoke to the "China " factory rep and he said NO plans to modify the app. Typical Chinese BS!!!!

I'm starting to suspect that the simulator needs its own, different remote controller. The one in the video advert is not the same as the one of the drone. And the controller that the simulator is showing, is similar (probably same) to the one on the advert.

It turns out that the simulator doesn't support Mavic 2 controller. You have to buy a Smart Controller to use the simulator!!

My Mavic 2 (Zoom) standard controller works perfectly with the DJI free flight simulator. The control sticks, the camera up/down and zoom wheels and the C2 button are supported and they work as intended. I dont't think that the Pro controller is any different from the Zoom version(?)

Again, you can use it. I do it every week, maybe it's just a problem with their unsigned drivers. I believe it's just not updated in their compatibility list. I'm using Windows 10, though.

I know this topic is a bit old, but i purchased my first Drone, Mavic 2 zoom here in Japan and would like to train a bit on the simulator, before i visit with the the drone field close our home. But i have the same issue with the standard mavic 2 zoom controller. Its just showing connecting ... and i can use the sticks in the menu but not any other button. So i have to start the simulation with enter, can fly around with the sticks, but cannot change anything on my remote.
Did you do anything special? I installed the usb driver file from the simulator folder but just my sticks are working.

And greetings to good old Germany I moved 3 years ago from Germany to Japan.

Hi Sadako,

I can't remember anymore exactly how I did that (Windows 10). My blurry recollection is that I had to install a driver package which came with the DJI flight simulator somewhere hidden in one of the (sub-)directores where the FS got installed. I remember that this was not really documented in any DJI manuals but after countless hours of research in forums I finally got the right hint.

I just know that I don't have any problems since then.

Sorry for not being more helpful!

Thank you for your reply. I installed the driver package that is also showed in many YouTube videos. But maybe there  is also another one. Im also using Windows 10.
I mean, the basics are working, and the simulated drone is always in sport modus, so maybe not the best way to train in a simulator, but especially the extra buttons would be interesting to use there.
I will have a look at the other folders inside the DJI simulator installation. Thank you

I don't think there is another driver package, there was only one. This I know for sure. So if the basic stuff works and the other buttons not then it seems to be another issue.

By the way, I always use the keyboard in the corresponding flight mode menu in the FS. It's very well possible that the mode switch on the remote controller doesn't work anyway for the FS. But at least the camera wheels and the C1/C2 buttons work.

Edit: There are two different controllers for the Mavic 2 on the market. RC1A and RC1B. Mine are RC1A and they work with the flight simulator.

I see, i checked my controller and its the RC1B so maybe this is why its not working. No button is working, but at the end, i just need the sticks, and changing the mode and the camera on my notebook keyboard should be no problem. So i think i will stick with it because i dont think my controller will get better support for now.

Thanks again

I can confirm that the remote controller model RC1B with firmware 01.00.0640 works with the flight simulator, but only for certain types of flights. A bit tricky to find out what keys to use on the keyboard. But I think it is mentioned in the manual what to do.

I would be great if you could supply the details of how you got it to work.  I also have the RC1B and, so far, have not been able to get the simulator to acknowledge it at all.  Thanks!

Hi, Thanks for asking. Will have a look at this tomorrow and gladly come back to you, as I have to go through what I did again, as it was some time ago now.

Hi, I am only able to fly the free flight called Free Flight-Farm. I use the "V" key to select so that it shows a "P" in the semi circle in the lower left hand corner. But still it is not easy to fly this way I think. You can not fly in any other mode unless program is payed, so is not to much use at all. Far better to go out on a field sett drone first to Beginner and practice.
Here are otherwise the steps I use:

1. Start DJI Flight Simulator.
2. Enter same details and you do to log in her.
3. Verify the code. Sometimes I have to verify the 2 to 3 times before it works.
4. Press Login.
5. DJI Main screen shows.
6. Press start.
7. Connect remote controller via the USB to the computer and USB mini to the left side of the RC
8. Turn on the RC.
9. Use the key W or S on the keyboard to select Free Flight.
10. Then press Enter on your keyboard to confirm this.
11. Mavic 2 pro then shows on my screen
12. Press S on your keyboard to selct for me Hasselblad 1inch Cmos sensor.
13. Then press enter again on the keyboard.
14. Free Flight-Farm is displayed.
15. Press Enter again on your keyboard.
16. Take off point 1 shows on screen.
17. Press Enter and program will load all drones and take a bit of time.
18. Then the drone shows sitting on the road on your screen ready to fly.
19. Before flying you can select which mode you want by pressing P on your keyboard. You will see in the bottom left corner a simi circle and in the lower pat of that just below a small square is a letter either A S or P. I selct P but that is personal.

Best is to download the manual and read a bit first. I agree that it is a bit dificult to understand every thing and took me quite a while until I came to the place I could fly.
Good luck.

Strange, I can fly the free flight farm, the inside hangar and the one with the mountains and the sea surrounded by roads (can't remember the name right now). I have the free version too.
