    My Phantom came packaged with a 6" long USB micro cable. There doesn't seem to be anywhere to plug this into, not that there's anything in any documentation that I can find anywhere that says what it might be for, anyway.

    What might it be for?

    If you have a newer Phantom, the transmitter has a micro-USB socket (either on the bottom, or more likely and unfathomably, directly on the circuit board requiring that you unscrew and take apart the shell) for its own upgrades.

    On my P3S , its used to , as said , to charge the controller or down load photo's from the Drone SD card or flight info . I just plug it into my Laptop to charge the controller . I pull the SD card & with its adapter , down load directly to the Laptop , its much faster.

    Depends on what version off Phantom you just bought. You don't mention this.
