I was successful in connecting my phone to my controller via a OTG cable adapter and had the wifi off on my phone. Maybe better controller not having the phone wifi and controller wifi on at the same time? Need to test more

And this doesn't interfere with placing your phone in the slot. It looks like it's just below, Ami right?

Cool! I'm picking this up tomorrow and avoid all the drama some of you guys been posting about.
Smart idea...You see, there is a benefit to not having received your Spark yet. You'll be a Spark issue expert from all the free time you had reading this forum. :)

I ordered a micro-USB to female USB this morning on Amazon, just so I can use my 'short' USB - Lightning cables that I use on the Mavic. I like the idea of having a physical connection to the controller, wi-fi can be flaky for so many reasons. Fine for those 'quick' shots using just the phone but, if using a RC, I'll 'connect' through wire. Now I just need the Spark...
