Works without any drivers on any operating system that supports Steam.
Can be used just to send input from a controller to a PC. Go into Streaming options, hit Y and disable video and audio streaming.
Won't work great unless you connect it to LAN or a low latency Wi-Fi.

Support In Games[edit]

Support for some controller features may be only available on certain systems. Refer to game-specific articles for details.

Games with motion control support[edit]

For a list of games, see List of games that support tracked motion controllers in non-VR gameplay.

Motion control is only emulating mouse movement, what makes controller ready to use with majority of PC games.
Due to mouse movement restriction, unable to emulate real motion control of Steam, PlayStation or Nintendo controllers.

Games with LED lights support[edit]

Number of games which support LED lights is limited and LED lights support is still not a PC standard. There is no game which supports Flydigi Apex 2's LEDs natively.
Aurora, a third party, open source solution for handling RGB lighting is not supporting this controller.
Steam Input configuration is not allowing control of the LED lights on this controller.
reWASD application shows battery state and which config is applied by changing LED lights colors (5 presets). All the presets could be changed in Preferences in LED settings tab.

Games with XInput button prompts[edit]

Total number of games: 2,274.
The controller's button positions and colors, and the amount of buttons, differ considerably from those of other Xbox controllers. As such, the list below should be treated with some caution.
Please note, that this is only list for games that offer XInput button prompts.
Some may require use of Xbox 360 controller emulation. Refer to game-specific articles for details.


Issues fixed[edit]

How to maintain the wheel button?[edit]

Protect the wheel area from heaping the dust in daily usage. If it's jammed, use the thinner hairbrush to clean. If it's not used for a long time, install the wheel ring to protect.

The aiming point drifts automatically while using the somatosensory?[edit]

If the somatosensory of flying mouse is out of control, keep the controller staying still on table for 10 seconds.

It's unable to use the wireless receiver to connect to the device, the indicator keeps on flashing slowly?[edit]

Press the ᴘᴀɪʀɪɴɢ+𝐀 buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds to switch to the 2.4G wireless connection mode and press the ᴘᴀɪʀɪɴɢ button for 5 seconds'long to keep the controller in paired states, plug the wireless receiver in the device's USB port and keep the controller close to the receiver[1].
