iPad Mini 2, 3 or iPad mini 4?

Right Angled Lightning Cable
Using a regular cable with the iPad Mini in the controller will result in the cable sticking out and bothering your hand during flight. The way to fix that is using a right angled USB. The ideal cable length is between 6–8″, which turns out is hard to find.
Luckily, there is a cable on Amazon for $10 inside a little plastic keyholder — which you can break open and free up the perfect sized right angle cable.
