    I have an old Motorola G2 which I've started using purely with my P3A.
    I downloaded the app on it maybe 3 weeks ago, then disabled or uninstalled all the no longer required apps and put it in aeroplane mode.
    It works fine with the app.
    I'd noticed my phone lost battery charge over a couple of days so turned it off when not needed.
    Went to turn it on today and it was dead, so I re charged it and once it started I went into the battery settings to discover that the dji go app was at 88% usage over the last 30 hours despite the phone being turned off!
    This is what is killing the battery. I've Googled the problem to find that historically many people have had similar problems. I'm not sure about force closing the app as I get a warning this may prevent the app functioning correctly.
    Are there any fixes available?

    I would just force close the app after use. Yes sure it will stop working if you are flying, but it will reboot OK when you need it. Some users have problems with certain android devices, which crash during flight, they restart App in flight, and all is OK.

    OK, I'll try that, thanks.
