    Depends on how many batteries you have for your phantom. You use roughly 10 percent power per two batteries. The RC uses a lipo tho so regardless I probably wouldn't want to let it dio below 10 percent tho I'd suggest charging before it reaches 30 percent or even higher if you want.

    I think the magic number initially for conditioning your battery is 30%
