    I find that NOT being able to charge the remote control via the bottom USB is kinda stupid....... Here you have a open port that you can just plug in..... VS having to Un-Plug the side port that is used for your phone.

    I wonder what it is that makes the bottom USB port not accept incoming power?

    Isn't the bottom port a USB Type A (aka what computers have)? That would take a male to male USB Type A which I know I don't have. That would be a specialty cord where I'm willing to bet that 9/10 people have a USB Type A to Micro laying around somewhere.

    @Chase, yeah... that was my same thinking when trying to answer that question, I just couldn't think how to word it. lol. The port on the bottom is more of an output type port giving communication between the device and the RC. It doesn't seem like it would be too difficult to remove the one plug and insert the charging plug.

    An A-type USB port simply can't accept input power.
