    Sorry, another quick question, when you are flying and the battery is nearly flat, can I just land and swap for another charged battery and carry on flying? Or do I need to re calibrate etc? Many thanks as always :)

    There is no need to calibrate the compass between batteries.

    You can stick the new battery in, get your sats and IOC set and go. No need to recalibrate.

    Not sure if required, but I like to let it all cool down abit for 10 mins or so between batteries.

    I have two batteries (the third one got the dreaded "swells"). I fly back to back batteries all the time. Nothing has yet to explode. A cool down would at the very least do no harm. And give the sweat a chance to dry!
