    Sorry, I know this issue has been discussed multiple times here, so please indulge me this one last time. My updated phantom 2 vision's battery alarms are going off within minutes of take off with a fully charged battery. Phantom, battery and transmitter all check out fine on the computer. Battery has 73 cycles. Help!! Thank you. Tim

    Battery is toast.

    The data given when hooked up to the Assistant software is not while the battery is under load.

    Once under load the voltage sags and then the low batt. alarm(s) kick in.

    I've run into this same thing, and I'm still running 3.06 on my main controller and 3.2 Assistant. One of my batteries has gone bad, due to my ignorance in how to store them. I used to fully charge them, then store them. One battery down, one so-so. :(

    It's actually exceptional in my experience.

    I could never get more that 50-60 out of my 450 CP-heli batts.

    Even before 50 you could begin to tell the loss of capacity was growing.
