    When i check the battery usage on my phone, DJI go app is listed as the top one. I barely use that app as i fly my phantom like once every two weeks. Does the app do something by itself on the phone even when not being used. Obviously i've made sure the app is not running in the background.

    The Go app is a major battery hog on my Droid. It'll drop 10% in an hour when just sitting on my desk. It seems to totally solve the issue though if I just swipe away the app when not using it. It's never running unless I'm flying.

    I see the GO app running in the background and using data even when I've not been using the app. It even runs in the background after restarting the phone. Makes me wonder if China is spying on us...
