Hi,
I am one of the numerous spark users with the issues of lost of signals with the RC.
We know that there is the possibility to have a OTG adapter / micro usb - micro usb cable to link the phone straight away with the RC without the wifi.

We hear a lot of dicussions about it but no real examples of what cables (micro ubs - micro usb as for the mavic) to take depending of apple or android.

I would like to know what is the best one for Android (Sony Xperia). Is the one from the Mavic could work?
I am sure other users from appele would like the same answer.

Thank you!

Works fine with android. They list the iphone version with lightening plug.

Also note that the rc uses a micro usb type a which is of rectangular design. Although the dji charger 'fits' it, it strictly speaking really the wrong plug.
The cable above is correctly manufactured and must be used the correct way round.

It is not recommended to use the OTG cable since it hasn't been fully tested. Besides, could you please provide more details about the signal issue of your drone?

Thank you fans9ea9c44f for your comments. I did not know that the the plug on the RC was a different design than a normal mini-USB.
I will think twice to check if I buy or not.

DJI Diana, I have lot of issues to fly at more than 60 - 100 m away. I lose the signal very easily and I would really try to find a solution at this issue.

Thank you for your help,

Florent

I would recommend you to change to another location without interference and adjust the antenna to see if it works.

You can get these cables through the online store. Look in the accessories section.
