    I hooked up my Phantom 2 to Phantom Asst and began discharging the battery. It discharged fine all the way down to 8% and it continued discharging but it seemed to get stuck at 8% but was still discharging. I got nervous and unplugged it. The current voltage was down to 677mA when I unplugged it.

    I don't know but maybe it stays at 8% for quite awhile before going down to 7%...but I got nervous.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I discharge it in flight. When 15% is reached and it begins auto descent I just counteract by applying more throttle to keep hover until 6% is reached. Then land. I have iosd mini so I can see its current %. I guess with vision or vision + you can do in similar fashion. Plus doing it this way tx is getting cooling breeze. This is assuming you have tx for FPV.
