    Is there a good battery primer/reading for the smart batteries? I've read the DJI one a couple times but it's kinda slim on info. I'm almost positive I've read somewhere that you should only discharge new batteries to ~50% the first couple of times and I've been doing that but now I can't find the post that recommended that through searching. :/

    Also, I'm staying in the habit of uploading my data to healthy drones to be proactive on things and even though I've charged my batteries at least 2 times each, they both say 0 for their charge counter.

    This is an urban legend that someone started a few months after the Phantom 3 was released. It won't hurt anything if you do it, but there is no proof to show it aids in the longevity of the batteries.

    Well then, I've been screwing myself out of some flight time. This impending snow better not last long, I have making up to do.
