    Hi, I want to calculate the maximum temperature my drone reached during flight. From flight log I can get the information about the Battery Voltage during the flight over time and I know battery the specs (4480 mAh, 68 Wh, 15.2 V). Does anyone know how to calculate that? I'm stuck and would appreciate any help I can get! Thank you!

    Welcome
    I don't think the temperature of the battery can be calculated out of its spec. The measure value is stored in the flight log, then you would need to see the value. I can guess that the highest value will be at the end of the flight. So you need to make your flight log processed to retrieve the temperature over flight time. You can also just watch at the end the flight what is the current temperature, most probably it will be the maximum. You can also use web site like HealthyDrones.com - Innovative flight data analysis that matters to upload you flight log and see the graph of temperature over time.
