    I sometimes get battery error messages during flight and would like to know if anyone else has these issues.
    Contacts on the batteries and the Phantom are cleaned often with a Q-tip and contact cleaner and the pins are in good working order. The messages only pop up for a short period of time then go away.
    The Phantom flies fine when these errors pop up. They seem to appear when applying a lot of power or when doing a fast yaw.
    Model is a P2V+ Ver.3

    I often get battery warnings at full vertical thrust. I just ease back a bit and they go away. I have 5 batteries of various ages, same for all of them.

    Ensure battery is firmly seated.

    I always confirm the battery is firmly seated. That is not the cause of the problem.
    Thanks anyway.

    This does not apply to my case, cannot see this info on the Phantom 2. I only fly down to 40 to 50%. I see these messages shortly after takeoff with a freshly charged battery. It does not always happen. Thanks for the effort though.
