    Just wondering if anyone could help.

    I am trying to use my android tablet with my drone.
    However, when I plug the drone controller into the tablet it is not recognised by the tablet.

    I have noted that when I tried this on my friends tablet his tablet came up with the correct app to run and this does not happen on mine.

    The app appears to be working correctly on the tablet.

    Is there something in the settings I can change so the tablet recognises when a device is connected?

    The tablet has two USB sockets a standard and a mini. The tablets it has worked on in the past only have one.

    Thanks for your help.

    It may need an OTG adapter. And it may just not work in your tablet. Try an OTG adapter first. (If you don't mind the wait, you can get them from China on eBay for $1, shipping included. It's only a plug, a jack and a little piece of wire, so a cheap one can't be too much worse than a $35 one. [I've had authentic Samsung plugs fall apart in my hand, and I've never had a problem with Chinese plugs.])

    Thanks for that I will give it a go.

    As I did say when I put anything into either USB port the tablet doesn’t automatically pop up and ask what app to use with the device. Where as on the tablets that it seams to work on it does.

    Is there any settings within android I may need to change does anyone know?
