Today I rused out to get some flying during the golden hour, took 3 batt., the spark, controller with the CS attached.
Arrived on the flying spot I found out that I forgot the battery of the CS.
  
But I am an old model flyer, so I could fly without the screen keeping the spark near to me, no fancy stuff.
When I switched on the controller to my suprice the CS also powered up!
I could just fly with the CS without a battery attached.
  
  
I must say it was already a low light environment, so the brightness of the screen was about 20%.
So the CS was powered by the controller (I did use a OTG on the controller with a USB C connector to the CS).
I do not know if this was mend to by working, but it did work for me.
When I did power down the controller, the CS also did power down. (Nice)
   
Careful: your battery of your controller will be faster empty and if you put the screen brightness to 100% you maybe fry your USB port.
   
So if you forget your CS battery, you could give it a go like I did. (Of course you should use your battery normally).

I wasnt able to power my CS via the USB C, I guess I wasnt using OTG or something. I had that issue when I initially bought the CS but my MP1 power brick cant power the charger. I never could power it up until I got an Inspire power brick and charging the battery. I will try to see this tho I also wouldnt recommend it. I use CS cause the controller is not charging it and battery will last longer. 3 batteries for MP and M2P is just enough for a safe battery level on the controller.
