    Hi guys

    Well

    I was using my phantom many times. Dverything beautiful

    Today, after 3 weeks of not even turn the bird on, i launched it again..

    I receive many critical voltagge warnings!! Very scary!

    Im with the latest firware (1.4.10).

    The first time i turned on it said i was totaly ok, everything updated.. I tufned off and turned on again and received a message that my rc firware should update.. I did it via downloading at the app..

    Now i have
    Aircraft: 1.4.10
    Rc 1.4.30
    App 2.4.1


    But im still running ios 8.4..
    Should i update to 9??

    I used to see some complainings about it.. Is it now safe???


    Thanks so much galera!!!!

    Ahh

    I must say that im using a battery at 50% and it was unused for more than 3 weeks.. I just used the bird as it was the last time that i took it... Probably that was the fault, right?

    I have iPad mini 2 running on iOS 9.1 with latest app 2.4.1. I see no issues. I followed the following steps to be extra sure:

    Deleted DJI Go
    Rebooted iPad
    Updated iOS to 9.1
    Rebooted iPad
    Installed DJI Go 2.4.1
    Rebooted

    I see no issues

    Ive had the same, not used it for two weeks or so. Autodischarge brought it down to about 60% got critical low voltage error soon after takeoff. Lesson seems to be: charge fully especially if you havent used it for a while.

    I always turn on my Phantom and my RC every week to drain the battery help keeping the battery cell healthy.
    I do not trust Dji auto discharge feature at all.

    It happened to me 2 times i was on almost 100 meter altitude , but i flow down very fast and i turn the bird off then remove the battery, after i turnned on and fly like champ, its happened after long time rest, no worries but keep baying attention , To be honest it scary ,

    There have been tons of reports here, and lots of other P3 threads, on a partially charged battery issue. Several folks have dropped out of the sky after taking off with a partially charged battery

    NEVER take off without a fully charged battery.

    Incorrect! Never fly on a partially charged battery that has been partially charged more than a day.

    And this has nothing to do with the App version or firmware.

    My basic rule is ( and it hasn't let me down yet, although I've only had mine since the Summer, with c50 flights on the clock) I don't have any problem whatsoever flying with a battery at 50%, but only on the same day ie after a previous flight. I never fly with a depleted battery that has been left for longer than a day.

    Im pretty much in the same boat. 300+ flights. Sometimes as many as 15 or so on one charge. Never an issue. But all on the same day

    Yeah guys. Thats definitly a true!

    I just left the batery discharge until 5%, charged till 100%, and the bird (and the voltage) was totaly ok, beautiful as it always been!

    One more lesson learned: never leave battery unused too long and use it!

    Thank you all guys for the teaches!!

    Tamo junto!!
