    Ever since the latest update I have noticed that my P2 shows the flashing red warning much earlier. On a recent flight over a lake my P2 seem to loose height as soon as the flashing reds came on. It was of major concern because I was over water at the time. If I hadn't seen the lights it would probably have resulted in my P2 landing in the drink. When the P2 landed, I noticed I still had two green battery lights! Anyone else encountered this problem and is there a work around?

    Check to see if your battery is swollen at all. I have two now that although they are only down to 50% or so, the battery warning on my IOSd blinks and then the P2 starts to autoland even before the lights on the P2 blink red.

    I think the update monitors voltage differently now.
