    Thanks for all the help guys, seems I have one last question.
    Does anything need to be done in regards to the range extender?
    Why the micro cable insert on it? It does not need to be charged, does it?

    Yep, it needs to be charged, and your app will show you the amount of charge remaining once you start flying.

    Thank you Tom. The only way to charge it is to plug in the micro cable, correct?
    If so, I assume the power switch on the extender should be in the off position?

    Once you plug in the connector to the range extender the indicator light will change from yellow to green when the battery is charged. The power switch can be on or off - you can actually charge the range extender while using it from a portable charger source.
