If you study the battery capacity (flying time) of the Mavic Pro (21min per battery), the Controller battery life (quotes a 5-6 flights - say 2 hrs max) and the life of the CrystalSky monitor 4-5 hrs plus the ability to easily change batteries in the Mavic Pro and the CrystalSky, then it is obvious that the controller is the weak link-
Never fear...

I have discovered that I can add an ADDITIONAL usb cable between the controller micro usb charging port and the USB 2 port on the side of the CrystalSky (Using the mavic supplied charging cable). Then the controller will show the charging logo and continue to charge whilst teh drone is controlled from the CrystalSky.

I can now have spare batteries charging for both the drone and the CrystalSky and not have to worry about running out of power from the controller.
