Controller disconnects while flying

Unfortunately this is just down to how the app is designed to interact with controllers.

The controller setup and axis load is done at the moment the app loads up. You’ll notice if you launch infinite flight and then connect your controller, it also will not work or be detected fully, hence why when it shuts off it’s no longer operational.

Both a Xbox one and PS4 controller have a standby timer built into them to stop them staying on for long periods of time. Though I haven’t tested it myself, you can change the amount of time a controller stays on in the console settings if you own one, or the alternative is to plug it in which on an iPad may be a challenge. I would only really recommend using a controller on a flight where you will be hand flying the entire time 🧐
