    Has anyone found a source for a USB C cable? It looks like I'll have my Mavic before I can find the cable which will probably leave my with limited capabilities until I can get one. The cable looks pretty proprietary so a temporary work around might be tough.

    You should be able to use any A-C cable.

    From what's been posted the supplied short cables have the "cleanliness" advantage, but you can still use a standard generic cable.

    You very badly failed to understand the point of the disucssion, which is that the short cables supplied with the Mavic are non-standard.

    While DJI's C-to-µ cable may not be available for launch, you can use a C-to-A cable (maybe your phone came with one?) to plug into the USB-A port located on the bottom of the controller.

    Awesome, I had no idea there was an A on the remote. That will work for the time being. Thanks!

    Hopefully this cable will come with the controller. From DJI's web page: "Supported USB port types: Lightning, Micro USB(Type-B),USB(Type-C)™"

    I've also found it on B&H site - $8, not available yet:
    DJI RC Cable for Mavic Controller (USB Type-C)
    B&H # DJMP5RCC MFR # CP.PT.000561
