Question in title.

I have a drone I need to test which requires a 5GHz connection.

If it's possible to add 5GHz wifi capability through a dongle then I want to give it a go.

  • It's a Samsung A3 2016 (A310F). So it isn't possible to add 5GHz capability through an OTG device? – James P. Sep 19 '18 at 4:15

    The problem with OTG devices is Android doesn't have the drivers and they can't be installed by regular users like on Windows either. – Andy Yan Sep 19 '18 at 6:41

No. It's not possible

Your device doesn't support dual band (802.11 a or ac not supported) and adding OTG dongle that supports dual band isn't going to help. As an analogy, your service provider may provide WiFi but if your router ( like the older ones) doesn't support 5Ghz you can't use it in upper band
