    I had a small crash... Not cataestrophic... But the battery did fly out. Should I now no longer use that battery? How do I know if it's still good. It wasn't hot or puffy?

    Which Phantom were you flying? Any other information you have to offer would be really helpful. ;)

    Looks like a P2V+ based on previous posts. I'd say... check the contacts, scratches, dents, and connect it to the Phantom assistant software and look at the battery menu from there if anything looks odd.

    If it's the older battery it should be ok. Might wanna check the connections just in case, but mine flew out a couple times and it's still working just fine.
