    Just an alert for all users have just upgraded to latest DJI Vision App for P2V my battery indicator on Ipone app showed 96% but when I landed it was actually 4%

    I was flying for about 20 minutes today and was wondering why I hadn't heard the familiar claxon horn alerting me battery was getting flat. The app showed me that I still had 96% battery left. Not trusting that the new app had improved energy efficiency that much I flew the P2V back to look how many lights were displaying on battery and to my shock saw only 1 light illuminated.

    I quickly landed and then after the P2V was shutdown the app then showed 4%. I had constant streaming for the full flight but it appears there was a glitch with battery data.

    This is the first time i have had this issue and with 20 odd flights with old app never had this. This flight was only the second with new app upgrade so I hope it isn't the flavour of things to come.

    That's weird. I had a similar problem yesterday. It was so bright out that I had a hard time seeing the screen on my Nexus 7. I thought I'd been up in the air a long time, so brought her down enough where I could see the battery lights. I was down to one full green and a flickering second. That's WAY past klaxon time, and no klaxon. I was up for over 26 minutes with a stock P2V and added Flytrex core... I'm going to test this again today and really keep an eye on what's going on...

    Other than that, it was a completely unremarkable flight. Nothing at all went wrong, other than that...

    2 people having this issue is 2 people too many.

    I have sent an email to DJI Support in the hope they can release a patch for the latest version of app as this never happened with old app.

    Will post here if they come back with anything
