    What do you mean "it alarmed low battery" - define "it" and be specific

    After about 10 seconds of it flying I get all red lights on the drone blinking and my iPhone flashes the battery warning icon and the actual battery icon flashes red even though it's sayin 78% I've had 3/4 new battery's in it and it's just the same. is my pv2+ totally broke??

    That's an indication that your battery has a bad cell and it's junk no matter what the assistant says the percentage of life is. And if you just bought some new batteries and they're doing the same thing send them back.A lot of P2 batteries that are sitting new on the shelf have been sitting there fully charged for over a year now.
