    It can be perfectly safe if you mind your battery voltage. Many pilots pay no attention to the battery voltage, so it's just easier to tell them to only fly with a full battery.

    +1 on what Phantomhelp said.

    I would tend to be more likely to fly like you described after landing same day
    vs.
    putting it away for days and then taking it out at 60%.

    But myself 60% and I am on the ground, it is an automatic battery switch. no harm , no foal!

    Good luck and have fun flying!

    This subject is controversial, but personally I have never had a problem with landing and then taking off again within a few minutes. One of the main considerations is the battery temperature. If you've flown long/hard enough to raise the battery temp substantially, then I think it's safe to resume flying at 50-60% as long as the battery has not cooled too much. Obviously the air temp affects how long it takes the battery to warm up and how quickly it cools down.
