Hello,

Is there any way to charge the drone while it's powered ON and on the ground?  Or is there any way to remotely power ON/OFF the drone?

I am asking this because I think this is done by almost all Charging Pads (wether it's Skycharge/Skysense or Heisha DPad, or any other)

Those charging pads always require a (one or more) little connector(s) on the feet of the drone. So when it lands it makes contact to the charging pad.  However, the drone is still powered ON at that time and as far as I know (and tested) it's not possible to charge the Mavic 3 using the USB-C port while powered on.
So my question is: How is that done?
I can imagine 3 possible answers:
- It just need a manual intervention each time after the drone has landed; To turn it off. When you want to fly away then again it needs manual intervention: Turning it on.
- There is a firmware or secret setting 'hack' so it can be charged while powered on or it will enter a semi-standby mode.
- There is a way to remotely turn on/off the drone. Maybe via a firmware hack?

I heard that the Mavic 2 Pro and Enterprise have no problem with this. They can charge while the drone is powered on and can take off while there is a cable in the USB port. Can someone confirm this?
