    Hi All

    I took my Phantom for a flight yesterday having charged all 3 batteries.

    Eventually after taking quite a while to get a Satellite locks I took off and after 10 seconds the battery failed and it came back down with a bump. Luckily it was only meter above ground when it just fell. All ok with it I hope.

    My question is, is there a way to check the status of the battery or life as in has the battery had it. It had a good charge with indicators rising whilst on charge and finished its charge cycle. Pressing the button on the battery to check the level before putting it into the Phantom showed all green lights. After is came down pressing the button showed 1 ight if that I think.

    Thanks
    Matt

    You can see your battery stats in the "Advanced" --> "Battery" section of the Phantom Assistant application. Also, while in there, it would be a good idea to check each battery to ensure you're running the latest firmware by checking for updates in the "Upgrade" section.
