Looking for a very reliable USB-C to USB-A Cable to connect my CrystalSky Monitor to my Mavic Air Controller.  The cable that comes with the Mavic Air is HUGE and looking for something shorter that is reliable.  I've tried many cables and it is hit or miss whether it will connect or not.

So far I am connecting my CrystalSky via USB C to Micro USB OTG cable to the RC and this works well. But like you I am still searching for a cable to connect to the RC USB A port.

This exactly looks like what I am looking for, thank you very much! Half the length would be even better...
Edit: Unfortunately they won't ship it to my country...

Well I finally grasped the reason why I was having a problem with my connections of my CrystalSky with my Mavic Air Controller.  If I keep to the following steps I never have problems with my connections:

1st flight of the day:

Step 1: Power up Crystal Sky (no cables connected)
Step 2: Power up Mavic Air Controller and Mavic Air (don't move on until you have established a connection between Mavic Air Controller and Mavic Air)
Step 3: Connect your cable to the Mavic Air Controller
Step 4: Connect the other end of your cable to your CrystalSky

Subsequent Flights (at the end of the first flight, do not totally power down CrystalSky and don't disconnect any cables):

Step 1: Wake up CrystalSky (no need to disconnect any cables prior to this step)
Step 2: Power up Mavic Air Controller and Mavic Air

I followed these procedures and 100% of the time I had a consistent connection.
