    Has anyone seen this alert? It appeared twice on my iPhone yesterday during a routine well within range flight... Also says "fly carefully" or something to that effect.. Crash avoided! Battery has been properly maintained per recommendations... Little gun shy however now.. Thanks for any feedback

    It flashed in the middle of the screen and stayed on just a couple of seconds.. Appeared similar to the phantom connection broken alert though smaller.. It did this twice within first five minutes of flight battery was 80 plus

    You should clean/check the battery connections. The voltage monitor pins can get fouled and give error warning. You might also hook the Phantom up to your computer and check the battery condition. Look for different cell values which can be an indication of imminent battery failure. Hope this helps. :D
