Hey all! Just wondering what brand cable are you using to link your Phantom 4 remote to your device? I'm using an iPhone 7 Plus and want to get a 12" cable that won't fail mid flight or give me errors. It doesn't seem like Apple makes a 12" cable because I'm sure that would no doubt be the best way to go.

So what are you using?

Check out these ijoy lightning cables on Groupon, I just tested my cable and it tested very badly, so I can no longer recommend them, it's a shame they were the perfect size

I use an Anker 12" cable that I bought on Amazon and it has been working flawlessly on my iPad Mini 4

How do you test USB cables? Just the connectivity?

I use a much shorter one. 6 to 8 inch seems to work much better. No long wire hanging. I am using Generac Lightning cord and have no problems. I have a 12 in and 6 in. For sale 20.00 for both and 2.00 shipping

another vote for anker. They do lots of various cables and chargers. I have s bunch of them. Better than the apple ones. I picked up a couple of 12" white ones and they are perfect for the iPhone 7+

My favorite cable is this Cambond lightning cable. I've been using them on all of my DJI aircraft for a few years now. They are made well and are very durable.

I just tested the ijoy coiled cable and was shocked to see that it tested very badly, so I will use a different coiled cable I have that tested perfectly

So I now can't recommend the ijoy cable as it tested worst






This one tested perfect

What does the 12" Cambond test at? I just ordered one.

You can't always be sure even when you buy a "Apple certified" cable like this blue one I purchased, it tests as fair.

I have a 12 Inch braided Anchor lightening and micro USB cable, they are very sturdy and work great while staying out of the way

The new Anker kevlar cables are decent.
