I have the Avata, the DJI Goggles 2 (not the FPV Goggles V2), and the FVP Controller 2.  I want to learn how to fly in manual mode.  It appears that DJI Virtual Flight does not work with the equipment I have.  If that is not true, please let me know what I might be doing wrong.  Otherwise, the reason for the post is to ask for suggestions of third party flight simulators.  I have tried "Liftoff" which is in the Steam ecosystem on my M1 Max Macbook Pro running Ventura and it does not find my controller (the controller was plugged into the Mac via a USB-C to USB-C cable).  I've also had suggestions to use VelociDrone but I've yet to see confirmation that it works with the equipment I have.

If I can't find a flight simulator, is there a best way to learn without one?  I've tried a couple of time to just slowly increase the throttle but so far, that isn't working.  I've also seen YouTube videos where experienced pilots when flying a new drone will first do test flights using line of sight rather than the goggles.

Another troubling thing is when I was testing it yesterday, the FPV Controller 2 didn't seem to have complete control.  Two pushes of the start button is suppose to start the propellors but rarely was that the case.  Perhaps 2% of the time was I able to start the propellors.  I have since re-linked the trio hoping that might help.  All the firmware is updated.

I also use my DJI remote control the Lift off simulater. You may have to change the port setting on your computer to accept the cable. But it works fine for me

There is an annoying issue where you can't use usb-c to usb-c.  You need to use a usb-a to usb-c cable.  Using an adapter to connect the usb-a end to the computer is fine.  The cable is the issue.

Someone else also suggested this and you are correct.  I am going to explore this more.  This may be why DJI Assistant 2 didn't work with this controller.

A usb-c to usb-c cable with and without an eMarker chip does not work.  The usb-c -> usb-a -> usb-c -> usb-c rig does work.  Sad...

Might be a dump question but did you power on the controller? 1x short klick then 1x long pressed on the Power button.

My controller is working perfectly fine in Velocidrone, uncrashed and liftoff. Got also Win11

Hi,

Thank you.  Not a dumb question but I did turn it on.  It is al little confusing because before it is turned on, the lights come on because it is charging.

There are two "problems" that I've found so far.

#1: Me... I did not notice in the DJI Virtual Flight process of getting started a place to touch to go to the instructions on how to set it up for DJI Goggles 2.  DJI Virtual Flight does work with them.  An option in the menu that the instructions show needs to be turned on.  So... 100% pilot error on that one.

#2: The DJI FPV Controller 2 is not real USB-C (according to what the USB-C guys tell me).  If you connect a USB-C to USB-A cable, then a USB-A to USB-C converter, then finally a USB-C to USB-C cable, the Mac will see the controller.  This is because (again... I've been told so I'm just repeating here) the DJI controller needs two resistors to comply with the USB-C spec.  When I mention that Windows does not have the problem, they are a little stumped.  So... I would say that we don't know 100% what is going on or what is wrong.  But the work around to getting the DJI FPV Controller 2 to work with a Mac is to put a USB-A section in the cable between the Mac and the controller.

On a side note, for me, Liftoff's simulation of the throttle is nothing like the real thing or what DJI Virtual Flight simulates.  And there are other oddities with Liftoff for me as well that I can't really articulate.

With all the weirdnesses and my lack of knowledge, I don't want to point any fingers.  I can only say that for me, right now, as I have it set up (or incorrectly set up perhaps), Liftoff does see the controller but does not do a very good job at the simulation.

Has anyone been able to get the motion controller 1 or 2 to work on liftoff on a pc? I have tried setting the controllers up manually in the liftoff settings but still has issues?

I have not tried.  But my experience with Liftoff with the FPC Controller 2 was not great.  I got things to work with DJI Virtual Flight.  While it is more limited, I believe it has a more realistic operation.  Of course, it may be that I don't have Liftoff set up correctly.
