    I have two questions/comments on charging that I'd like to get your feedback on:

    1. A recently posted video to the Academy section of the Pilot App and titled "Setting it up" shows the guy connecting both the remote and the battery to the charger at the same time. Yet, the manual clearly warns against charging both simultaneously as the charger could overheat... kind of confusing, but I do wish we could charge both in one shot.
    2. What is the use for the second charger cable (I'm sure this will end up being a silly question)? One end has to go to the charging port on the remote and the other only seems to go to an intelligent battery. So, it is for charging a battery from the remote?! The other way around? Or neither? It would have been nice if the cable had been designed to power the Inspire without a battery, for when you're calibrating/tweaking it, or when downloading videos from the camera.

    Thanks.

    The second cable is for charging the controller from a battery if needed.
