    Hi guys.

    I wonder how the Auto Discharge is working, I have set in the app that the battery should discharge after 2 days, last Friday I charged my battery to 100% today I looked at it, if it had discharged but it was at 85%

    am I missing something?

    It should discharge to the point that 2 of the 4 lights are solid and the 3rd is flashing. If this is what you are seeing, then it is working as designed. I believe 65% is the "target" percentage.

    Yes that was also what I have been reading, but from friday until today it is 4 days, and it is on 85% ?
    DJI says that is should take about 2 days to disharge to 60-65% ?

    It'll take a bout 2 days to discharge from 100% down to 65%. Whenever you press the button on the battery, the discharge process stops and the battery will wait another 2 days (in your case) before it continues to discharge again.

    Let the bird idle to run down battery packs.
    Also, Use the flight SIM to drain them down further... ;-)
