FlyDiGi or sometimes more commonly known as Feizhu are a well known gaming controller manufacturer in China. Recently FlyDiGi have announced a new left-handed gamepad called the FlyDiGi Wasp.
With the recent release of PUBG and Fortnite on mobile it is not surprising that manufacturers have started to release one handed gamepads The recently released Xiaomi Black Shark Gaming Phone was one of the first to introduce a left-handed controller to the market.
Like other controllers on the market, the Flydigi Wasp features an easy pullback grip that securely locks the iPhone in place. As for the buttons, it features a thumb stick with grip, two LT buttons, A and B buttons and a button with the Flydigi logo. The exact function of the Flydigi button is not known.
The controller can be connected with a physical cable located on the rear and no Bluetooth connectivity is required. Flydigi are using their own proprietary tech called CapAir Mapping that maps the onscreen buttons to the physical buttons. It is not clear if this will be done via an app or with a combination of buttons on the controller.
One striking thing about the controller is the black and yellow color scheme that really makes it stand out. According to Feizhu the controller is made from Polycarbonate with heat resistant coating to keep it cool. The controller has a 300mAh inbuilt battery that provides up to 20 hours of play time.
The controller is available in two variants. The Wasp-X is designed for use with the iPhone X only. The Wasp-N is designed for the iPhone 6 all the way to the iPhone 8 Plus. Currently Android is not supported. Feizhu have said that an Android version is currently being researched.
Update: Banggood are currently listing the FlyDiGi Wasp for $69.99 US. No ETA on an exact release date yet. As originally reported the controller is NOT using Bluetooth for connectivity. An MFI lightning cable is being used for a physical connection.
Currently Feizhu are taking preorders in China for 239 CNY ($35.73 USD) with an RRP of 429 CNY ($64.14 USD). Hopefully it will be available on AliExpress after release.
