Two OTG questions

Now that the OTG cable is actually supported I had two questions.

1. Does anyone have problems getting the OTG (or the charging) cable into the controller? It looks like on part of my port is slightly bowed. In the pic below it is hard to see, but with the naked eye it is more evident.

2. I notice that my Spark was drifting today which I remembered hearing from people who were using the OTG cable before. However it might have be a rotate drift as well as a left to right drift. Has anyone seen this?

Is OTG cable actually supported?

Given that they have an OTG cable on the Spark accessories page on the DJI site I would assume it is now. It no longer comes up with the error messages after the last app update.

The plug on the controller is a USB Micro-A jack. The plug on your OTG cable is Micro-B. The B jack is shaped to prevent inserting it backwards, which is why it is popular. Unfortunately, the A jack will let a B plug in upside down. BE CAREFUL, you can snap the pins. Be cautious, don't force. Perhaps mark which side is correct to prevent damage. If the correct way, they go in easy.
