    That's pretty normal. Just make sure you deep discharge every 20 cycles as indicated in the app.

    I had a battery throw a ton of errors like that toward 20 cycles. Thought I'd have to return it. Did a deep discharge and the next flight had only two deviances a few seconds after launch on a 15 minute flight.

    I'm currently breaking the battery in (as advised elsewhere) so thought that might be something to do with it. Thanks for the answer.

    DJI batteries do not have a break-in period. It might be helpful for other types of batteries though.

    Correct. It's not necessary.

    Gosh, I love this forum but so much contradictory information makes your head spin knowing what's right and wrong!!

    Thanks for your reply.

    How low is a deep discharge?

    IIRC it's down to 8%. I bought a battery discharger on Amazon which will bring it down to proper level.
