Saw on the FAQ page of Mavic Mini that its remote controller can only last 2 hours when using an Android device compared to 6 hours with an iOS device. I suspect this is because the RC will charge Android devices when using it.

In that case, the only iOS device I have is a 9.7-inch iPad. I'm wondering if the RC will work with my iPad using an OTG cable and will the DJI Fly app be available on the iPad?

Hello and good day. Thank you for reaching out and for the inquiry. The DJI Mavic MIni Remote Controller supports mobile phones that are 6.5-8.5 mm thick and no more than 160 mm long will fit in the remote controller clamps comfortably. We strongly recommend you to remove the protective cover before attaching your mobile phone. Devices beyond this measurement range are not supported. In addition you may connect an iPad Mini to the remote controller however, the included cable may not be long enough to connect. You can use a Micro USB OTG cable, which can be purchased at the DJI Online Store. For referenceI will be posting the list of recommended mobile devices for the DJI Mavic Mini. Thank you.

Thanks fork the response! I just needed to know if the RC will support OTG but unfortunately after downloading the app on my iPad, I found that it’s not supported natively for big screens.

It won't look as nice as native support. Top and bottom still have black empty areas while the app itself looks blurry and pixelated.

Hi, You're very much welcome. Again I am sorry for the trouble. But rest assured our DJI R&D team are testing multiple devices to be added on the recommended mobile device list for the DJI Mavic Mini in the near future. For the latest updates for the DJI Mavic Mini and for the DJI Fly application kindly please visit our official website at ( https://www.dji.com/ ) for further details. Thank you.

+1 for proper iPad support. Was expecting native iPad support like on the DJI GO apps, so a bit disappointing. Regardless I can live without it, but would be nice.

connect Mavic Mini with iPad Pro 12.9 3rd generation iPad. Cable included works with iPad but its not long enough to mount on remote.. USB-C. This Should be simple but I can not find a solution. DJI makes incredible drones but service leader should be fired quickly or retired.. Help ?

Hi, I tried this and it doesn't work.  The RC won't connect.  It appears that the iPad Pro just begins charging the RC.  

Does anyone know how to get this to work?

I found this out the hard way. I messed up the usb socket on my mini RC and carried it to a local cell phone repair and he said he could install a new socket. When I got it back, it  would charge but not communicate. Research show the usb sockets he installed was not otg. (missing D+ and D- wires. So  I researched some more and found I could purchase the complete usb boars for about $12.00. Got it, installed it and now no problems. So... the same things go for the cables also. Got to be otg.

OK, bout another cable...this time an OTG cable extension apparently for the MM as well as other DJI drones.  Still doesn't work.

Has anyone found an extension cable that actually works with an 11" iPad Pro?
