    In the manual it says it could overheat from drawing too much power. I try not to, but I did it once with no adverse effects. Probably not a good idea though.

    You can charge the radio at any time, and you can charge the aircraft battery at any time....what DJI are telling you, is not to connect them both to the charger at the same time.

    You can charge both at the same time despite what the manual says.
    It seems to make no difference except the aircraft battery will take a little longer if chargeing the controller at the same time.

    I didn't see a port for charging the RC on the aircraft's battery charger? Have I missed something? I was using a USB port on my laptop.

    The chargers for the Advanced and Pro have two outlets.
