Why is there delay for Bluetooth wireless connection to computer with the controller?
1. If a Bluetooth adapter is used for connection between the computer and controller,please make sure there is no WIFI router or similar wireless devices close to the adapter to avoid signal intereferences.
2.Most Bluetooth adapters work as a simple wireless transmitter and receiver with Bluetooth driver installation requested on computer, and the driver calls the computer's CPU for computation. So delay may occur when CPU is occupied much,or there is issue with the adapter,driver itself or different driver versions.  A unique controller Bluetooth adapter will be built by us with built-in CPU computation capability. No driver is needed and such delay will be quite eliminated.
