    All the documentation I've seen states only two cables are included, micro USB and a lightning cable. So I ordered a USB Type C cable for my phone, bit I just got this email from DJI:

    I ordered the C separate also and did not get that email. I placed my order Oct 8 so they might not have got to me yet.

    Even though I don't need it, seems good it's there as they are fast becoming the norm on Android.

    The Mavic FAQ shows the USB Type-C cable is included.

    Q: What Remote Controller Cables are included with the Mavic upon purchase?
    A: Three cables are included in the box: one with Lightning connector, one with a standard Micro-USB connector and the third one is the USB Type-C connector

    I got the same email. I also asked them specifically prior to ordering it that I needed to and they said yes. Looking for confirmation that they changed their minds about including it...great news if their email isn't a mistake but I don't trust their communication much...

    Also, the "in the box" PDF still doesn't show that it comes with the type c connector.

    Just got a confirmation email from support that they changed it to include all 3 now so they're cancelling that order for me. Interesting that they'd be so proactive... maybe I don't give them enough credit! Although they did actually cancel the order before I'd formally requested that they so so...

    That's great! I was waiting until my DJI store credit came through to order the cable but now won't have to.

    I just got the same as well. I'll probably just leave my order alone as I'm notorious for loosing cables.

    Yes, I was going off the PDF that said only two cables included. So happy it's included.

    So THAT'S why the shipments are delayed, they pulled them all back to add the cable!
