    That message was added in 1.6. It prevents the battery from reaching a point where it shuts off mid-flight. If you review your log, you'll probably see this is occurring during times when the battery voltage is low (close to 3.3V per cell).

    Is there someplace that all of the latest "features" are published? It seams that a lot of them are surprises.

    Thanks! Flying a P3P. I was looking for specifics on what issues were addressed, and what they did to fix them. I don't even like to upgrade my iPhone until after it has been out for awhile, and it is in my pocket most of the time, not 200ft in the air.

    That's where the not very detailed part comes in :)
