    How often/at what discharge point are you guys charging your P3 controller. I've had several flights, and the charge level on the controller hasn't moved down much. I've got to do more research on Lipo best practices & maintenance, but wanted to throw it out and ask charging best practices on the controller specifically. Thanks!

    You "typically" need to charge every 7-10 flights.

    I've charged mine two times, including initial charge.
    I have roughly 5 hours of flight time.

    I wouldn't have had to charge it, still had two lights on status.

    Seems their [DJI] current draw spec. must be inaccurate
