Why does DJI Go 4 need to access nearly my entire device?

I'm installing the DJI Go 4 app on my Nexus 9 (Android) tablet and am wondering why it needs to access so many things on the device? I can understand wifi and location, but why phone, photos/media/files, camera, microphone, device ID & call information, etc. I'm wondering is someone in China monitoring my audio and camera? :rolleyes:

I was also under the impression that Go suspended phone calls while flying. Does anyone know for sure if this is correct? I had always that that was the reason it needed access to your phone.

I think calls will still come through, but your caller won't take over the screen, so you can still safely fly.
