    I saw its got a small micro USB port on the Mavic itself. I'm guessing it's not to charge, what is it used for? Read the user manual and didn't see anything. Is it just used to update firmware?

    ps. I got mine on Tuesday and have been flying it quite a bit. Flies like a dream and produces amazing photos & video. I've already sold (without even trying) a number of people on getting one. Simply by showing the Mavic, or showing the footage.

    thanks!

    It can be used to charge the remote controller. See this thread.

    The remote controller firmware is updated using DJI GO or the DJI Assistant 2 application.

    its for updates and crash avoidance camera calibration.. when required via the pc and DJI assistant 2
    a quick calibration can be done via the go app on the sensors
    page 23 of the manual

    If you plug the micro USB into a computer the Mavic Pro shows up like a camera. This way you can download the images and videos from it without having to have a micro SD card reader on your computer.

    My only annoyance about it is that you need to turn on the Mavic to see the media when the cord is connected. This means that you need to expand the arms and remove the gimble cover. This is a minor complaint considering how handy the ability to download the media via a cable is.
