I got a mini-tablet for my Mavic. It's an android device.

I've seen from videos that what I want is a short cable that will connect the USB port on the bottom of the controller to the micro USB port on the tablet. This is the best one that I see on Amazon.

1 foot angled USB cable

This cable is 1 foot long, but I've seen people on the forum say that 8 inches is plenty. Has anyone found a better cable?

HERE is the best cable for your needs.  It is 9" or 25cm.

It doesn't look like that has the angled head on the micro USB. Without that, it will stick out more than the one I linked to.

Perhaps this?

I ordered a couple of these angled cables from these guys for my IPad.  This one looks like it's for Android.

Seems like the one you found works best for your needs.

I got a 1.2m cable with an angled microusb side, could not find a shorter one flat enough . It works well and the angled part fits in the clamp opening. I use it with a Galaxy Note4.

The one you linked looks way too cheap to trust to a constant connection.  I think it'll wiggle in the port and won't insert all the way.

That's a lightning port connector. I need USB.
