    Got my new adapter from eBay so I could finally give the Google Pixel C a run with my P4...

    Planned my flight, got all my gear supposedly and rode my GS to the location all excited.

    Walk to the spot and get all setup excitedly only to realise....

    No USB C cable to connect to the controller! Der!

    Lucky I had my Note 5 as a backup but feeling pretty stupid nonetheless.

    Anyone else using a Pixel C on Android Nougat?

    Your not the first idiot!

    I remember being all excited about flying with the iPad Air only to end up with it in the bag while I flew on the note4.

    Been there done that... on a PAYING job... luckily I have since added a spare in my flight case and also another one in my car just in case. Not only for if I leave one at home but cables can and do go flaky and I want to have a replacement on hand just in case.

    I started keeping an extra USB cable in my backpack as a backup in case cable fails or I lose it/ misplace it. This is my 'must to have' spare. :)

    So true! The spare in my car just started playing up.
    And I'm lead to beleive that the genuine google USB C cable is better than the $2 shop variety.
