    Is there anyway to "Stop" this from happening? I'd rather save the RC power I can easily charge my phone - thanks

    Interesting. Can't say that I ever even noticed.

    I agree. That is a total waste of TX power.

    Actually, that would be useful but, it does not charge from what I can see.

    I don't think my charges my iPad, but I assume you definitely see yours charging, right? That's strange.

    Mine is charging my Iphone 7 plus. First time out with the P4 and my phone was 77%, when I was done flying my phone was 100%. But it took the controller down to 80% (2 1/2 batteries). I did much better with PsP. It's cool just would like a choice to turn on and off in case your flying somewhere where you can't let the RC drain down so fast.

    I would love that! I love flying with my iPhone but it usually eats my battery Alive! So I use my iPad always

    There must be a setting in the go app that I'm not seeing. A buddy of mine went out flying our phantoms and when we were done my iPhone 6 Plus had a small percentage of battery left and my friends iPhone 6 was at 100% so obviously his was charging. It would be a nice feature in case your phone for whatever reason drops down too low. If anybody knows where that setting is or what the variable is on why one phone was charging one wasn't, please post.

    My Google Pixel XL also charges from the Phantom controller. It's slow, but it does charge.
