Can I use my Spacemouse to control a drone?

Is it possible to use my Spacemouse Pro to control a drone?
I have a Mavic Pro drone, that can be controlled from a smartphone or from it's Remote Controller that it can be connected to other devices.

It would be nice to use a single 5-axis joystick instead of two.

Drones move just like the 5DOF camera does in Google Earth. I've been using a GoPro drone and think it's rather silly to have one stick control horizontal movements, another stick control yaw and vertical movement, and yet another control for camera pitch control. Put all of that functionality on an intuitive 3DMouse, snap one of these on it on the controller and forget all of those other control sticks!

Every drone has its own functionality. I used one of the drones named Tactic Air drone.
