    I haven't seen any threads on here or anything online about how long the remote controller will last. When I had my P3 Pro I used to get like a dozen flights (running the drone battery right down each time) before it hit 1/4 capacity. Any ideas on how long the mavic controller will last in comparison?

    Thanks!

    I read somewhere that it's 6+ flights, but can't for the life of remember where, or the authenticity of the source..

    Thanks Alex, I'd have guessed it would be about 6 flights but I was hoping maybe a couple more. Anybody got any sources on here?

    I hope it can be charged via Micro USB during flight, just in case I forget to charge it. Then I can just pop a battery pack charger in the bag.

    Good question, I'd love to know if this would be possible too. Doesn't look like anybody has looked into the controller as much as the actual drone.

    @Blade Strike said it'll last for 6-7 battery packs.

    That's what I'm currently seeing.. these are 20+ min flights.

    Hi Ken,
    Have you tried charging the remote whilst flying g (with a power bank or similar?)
    I am going to guess this will not work due the the USB protocol and two devices connected simultaneously but worth a try.

    Yes you can.. but you have to use the upper usb power to charge and the lower usb for mobile device.

    Having flown a bit now, I'm getting roughly six ~20 minute flights with the RC battery.
