I bought an holder for my phone for my Mavic Air. The company said I should use a 9" cable to connect the android phone to the remote. I don't know how to specify the cable I need. HELP? Also does anyone know of a source....Thanks
Other factors hide in there too.
What phone, what you may use to hold the phone to the controller.
Some just attach the phone to the controller and some use something like the mavmount.
I’ve been using a 12 inch length because I use an iPad mini with a holder.
If you’re using just the phone/controller, 9 inch works fine.
You need to specify a USB data (not charge only) cable with the correct connection for your phone. A right-angle phone connector also is preferred if your holder will allow clearance for it. For cable length you could route some string where the cable would go and measure it. In the mean time, just use the data cable that came with your phone and wrap the extra around the holder post if it has one. Remember to unplug the short cable from the side of the RC.
Why genuine issued so short length?
is length detrimental?
When drone is cabled into s8, shorter length 3" offloads the sixtyfour gb mp4's significantly quicker than genuine issued cable fitted with gender reduction into usbC (both ends)
