    Ok, so it seems to me the RC was just built to take an iPad mini perfectly. All we need now is an RC cable that runs from the standard attachment point (right angle) down to where the iPad mini plug in place is (right angle) - basically the same cable tht the RC comes with, but longer. Has anyone found one yet?

    I'm sure someone will make a version soon, but for now you can use the other USB port at the bottom of the controller and a standard cable, just does not look that pretty.

    That's not bad - but we need a DJI cable from the left side of the controller, down the arm, into the tablet.

    Moving away from the iPad mini anyway - just picked up a Tab2 8inch. Now I have a bag, tablet, cables, filters. All I need is a drone!

    Only problem is you can't put a sunshade on them, and where I fly you really need one. So I am waiting on a mount I ordered to be able to use a sunshade with either a iPad Mini or a Air2.

    Have you found a sunshade that would work with an IPad Mini or a Tab2? Care to Share?

    I linked the Monoprice cable from the screenshot above. Also, check out the 8" Kanex cable.

    I connected USB (middle of the controller port) to ipad and it does not sense it at all. I reckon I need the cable that goes in the left side controller port, not USB?

    The bottom USB port will only work after you remove the cable from the left side. If it's still not working after doing that, then try restarting the remote controller.
