    Morning All. Quick questions. Due to work constraints, I've been unable to fly for the past couple months.The bird hasn't moved and the last time I flew, I drained both batteries. So my questions: Will my batteries still charge to capacity after sitting for so long? Any precautions I should take? I'm just not sure and I don't want to have power problems. Thanks in advance!

    If you stored them below 30% for a long period of time, they could be damaged. Charge them and see what happens.

    Batteries should be stored around 50-60% (if memory serves correctly. So you could charge them a little and then let them sit. You can also charge them above this amount and they will automatically discharge (if not touched) to the correct level.

    Per DJI, anywhere between 30%-65% is safe.

    Once you charge them back, use DJI Go app to see the capacity shown compared to the rated value displayed on the batteries.
