    Ok guys, I'm kinda new at this. Got a P3s and have a battery question for all the experts out there who know the do's and don'ts of the Intelligent battery. Do I store my batteries in my case (or backpack) with my quad, or leave them out until I need to transport them to fly or whatever. I have my discharge rate set at 10 days and have read they get a bit warm discharging. I am also trying not to store them at 100%. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    If you are worried about possible fire then store them in an ammo can or something similar. I store em on a tile countertop with backsplash that is also tile. When is the last time you saw tile catch fire? LOL

    I store mine in the backpack with the Phantom. But I fly mine at least every other week. I don't store them fully charged.. If I know its going to be more than a couple weeks, they'll go in an ammo can...
