    Re: Battery

    From the DJI manual:

    - Charge and discharge the battery completely once every 20 charge/discharge cycles.
    - Purchase a new battery after your current battery has been discharged over 300 times.
    - Purchase a new battery if your current battery swells up or is damaged in any way.

    Re: Battery

    Per the DJI manual:

    Slow Discharge Method:
    Place battery in Phantom and turn on. Leave on until there is less than 8% of power left or until the battery can no longer be turned on. See DJI VISION App for battery levels. Motors do not need to be turned on, reducing wear.

    Fast Discharge Method:
    Fly the Phantom outdoors until there is less than 8% of power left or until the battery can no longer be turned on.

    Read the manual, you do not discharge the battery completely, it says how, when and why to do it.
