Hi all,

Before buying my Avata and the DJI remote Controller2, I wanted to be sure that I liked FPV flying in accro mode.

Thus I installed DJI VirtualFlight on my Pixel6 phone and launched successfully the App.
But no way to control the avata properly... Until I made a small adapter for my Turningy TH9x RC radio

And the result is really cool. You can fly with any radio which outputs PPM on the trainer port!

... but then later you have to use the original DJI controller for better or worse, right...?

Yep you will have to use it if you buy the avata !

But you can try the Sim with a real RC radio for free.

And if you have a radio which outputs 3.3V PPM signal, then it can be even simpler

Great job!
This concept needs to be productized further and hopefully as a consumer friendly plug-and-play feature. Here is another use case in addition to the originally mentioned use case. Customers that bought into DJI ecosystem but fly drones with DJI Air units like Vista or O3 from third party manufacturers like GepRC (not DJI drones like Avata) want to use third party radios like Crossfire and ELRS they already have instead of buying yet another radio from DJI. Today, these customers can use simulators like Liftoff with their radios but not with Goggles 2 that doesn't have HDMI port nor get the quality graphics of DJI Virtual Flight. Such Bluetooth to RC converter feature will enable customers to use DJI Virtual Flight mobile app and get the most from the DJI ecosystem.

Only if you fly DJI drones. For those that use DJI Air units in third party drones would be able to fly them without the DJI remote controller and practice this sim when using this project. See my previous post for more thoughts.

You got the idea
Your use case is a good one.

And it's easy to make one.
