    Hello People,
    I have had the FC40 since Christmas and I must say what great fun it is.

    Anyway I used to get a 1st low level battery warning which was a green light followed by a series of red. After a few minutes after that maybe 2 to 3 minutes later it went to continuous red where I either brought the bird home or it auto landed.

    However, recently I have stopped getting the 1st low level warning. It just goes to the series of red flashes and then auto lands after maybe 2 to 3 minutes later.

    I have not changed anything in the Naza software, I always charged the battery fully before each flight and the battery voltage is still 12.54V. I did a hover test yesterday and it was 12 minutes from take off to landing.

    Why has it stopped giving me the 1st level warning?
    Thanks
    Kofi

    All sorted. I adjusted the 1st and 2nd voltage warnings in the Naza-M software

    Glad I could help. :lol:

    What battery are you flying with? If you're at or near sea level you could probably increase your flight time with a larger battery like a Multistar 4000.

    I see you've been here for a while but this is the first post of your's I have seen. Welcome to the party. What part of the planet are you hanging around?

    Thanks for the reply IflyingWY.

    I have got the standard battery and an Overlander 2900mah LiPo battery. I get just over 13 minutes with the 2900mah.

    Do you need to modify the battery door with the 4000mah and what flight time do you get?

    I am based in the UK.

    Only mods I went for are the prop guards, additional battery and a jolly logic altimeter. I don't think I will be doing further updates as I think a Yuneec-Q500 might be my next purchase.

    Thanks
