Hi guys, I'm able to connect my ps4 controller to my phone. But when I try to connect it to tellofpv it wont show up in the drop down list.

Am I missing a step?

Assuming you're using an OTG cable? What phone is it and is the phone OTG capable? Not all phones/tablets are.

Actually, don't connect the PS4 to the phone via Bluetooth (disconnect/unpair). Just let TelloFPV detect it in the app; memory serves. I'm running a PS3 now via OTG but initially via Bluetooth.

Are you able to use the controller in a generic gamepad tester app?

I was connecting it through bluetooth but I think I'll get a otg cable to see if that helps and also prevent lag. I havnt tried the gamepad tester app. Good call. I'll give it a whirl and let u know

once it works in a gamepad tester app like the one below it will also work in TelloFpv. If not - then no play...

I got my otg cable and now my ps4 controller works and shows up in tellofpv. Better anyways then I dont have to deal with bluetooth interference. I got a phone clip that goes onto the ps4 controller. It's a pretty legit setup.

Only thing now is I have to figure out how to configure the controller as I can control the left stick but the right stick needs new configuration. Work in progress. Once I get everything set up the way I like it I'll post back with everything I have.

Ok so I got the ps4 controller up and running but the problem im facing is the right joystick doesnt work. The left one works perfectly fine but i cant seem to figure out how to get the right one to work. When I open it up in gamepad tester the right stick doesnt controll the right axis. Do i have to remap it somehow for my android device to recognize it as a joystick?

Don't believe remapping was necessary upon initial connection. That said, in TelloFPV, go to Controller, Mapping and select the PS4 from the drop-down box. Assuming left stick is yaw/throttle, navigate to the roll/pitch options and select the respective function and press the right stick accordingly to register that mapping.

Does the right stick work on the PS4 console?

Ya I also tried 4 different controllers. The issue isnt with the right stick but more of a software/mapping problem. It's not tellofpv either causing the issue. As in gamepad tester it shows up just not controlling the axis. I wonder if it's just my phone. I'll try a different phone and report back.
