    I ordered another dji battery to have as a second battery it came yesterday so today I changed it up 100%

    placed it in the drone and tried to have a fly

    the go app alerted me the battery was critically low but yet there was full green lights showing on the battery itself the p4 propellers wouldn't start then I got a message say "incontinent firmware"

    oh no what's happen to my p4 I thought.

    So I took the battery out and replaced it with the original dji battery that come with the drone and everything was fine done a test flight it was fine..

    so whats wrong with the second battery its still only new?????

    You need to upgrade the firmware on your new battery. Start at step #20 here.

    Do you still see the "inconsistent firmware" message in DJI GO when you go to the camera view?
