Hi,
I have connected my iPhone to the controller of the Mavic Air via the Main Video link port on the left side.
The Lightning Cable is connected and and I can controll my Air via the App Features and also see the Video.

But the Controller is not charging my iPhone in parallel.
Is that normal or should it do that?

Thanks

The controller does not charge the iPhone. It’s working correctly.

You don't want it to. Your controller battery will last longer. Just make sure your phone and controller are fully charged before use. That way you will get the most flying time ;-)

the worst complaint! While Android users complain that the RC charge the smartphone battery and drains it .... IOS do not receive a charge from the RC. I'm glad that RC loads smartphones. Both must work at the same time with enough energy! in the fly RC = Smartfone!!( control flight+video stream)

First post I've seen of the RC not charging the phone. It's always the other way around.

My Phone is my daily working machine. And if I come home after work and can fly... it is normally at 30% or even below while having some calls in the car or running the speed camera warning app, that consume a lot of battery, that even the car charger have issue to refill and just can hold the level.

The RC is full at that moment.
