    I've been getting a message saying criticality low voltage- and my P3P goes into landing mode. Is this a motor issue?

    This message appears when battery voltage is below the set critical voltage

    Either battery is discharged to low level or you have not set critical voltage parameter correctly. Check setting in DJI Go App.

    The Phantom will also auto land if the battery is critically low -- despite the battery percentage set in DJI GO.

    Wow - didn't know that setting existed. Where is it? Issue happened to me once last year with P3P on a cold day. Haven't quite trusted that this issue wouldn't happen again. (BTW- now flying P4 - all good so far; but once you lose that trust . . .)

    You can find that setting in the "Aircraft Battery" section of the DJI GO settings.
