    Hey guys, where do you push on the battery to click it in? I found that you can't use I've finger for a smooth insert (for me anyway). Two fingers on each side provides the smoothest click.

    I still often get a click-click for the top and bottom hatches. It's not a single click. Is that your experience as well?

    Also, you can move the battery a millimeter or two up/down when it's inside the phantom. Is that your experience as well?

    I recall seeing at least one thread on here dealing with poor/inconsistent seating/fit of p4 batteries. Maybe you have one of the dodgy ones.

    I think they all move a bit in the drone.. Like a millimeter or two up/down. I've tested in another p4

    All my 4 batteries insert with 2 clicks and move about 1mm up and down but not out as they rest on the fuselage. I like hearing the small clicks because I know the retainers are doing their job. The batteries get pretty hot and they need room for thermal expansion without getting jammed in the bird.
