    The last couple times I have been flying, I have briefly received an "invalid battery" message. Today when I was reviewing my flight tracker, I was able to identify when it happened. You can see in the pictures when the amperage drops to 0 and then the battery % jumps to 255. The warning appeared for a second and then went away. I am looking for any advice on what I should do.

    Hi,
    Make sure the small contacts in both the Phantom and the battery are clean. Those are where the data comes from. Use a pencil eraser to clean the battery contacts but make sure to remove all the rubber debris when you finish. Other than that I don't have any other ideas. I have had the same issue using a Flytrex Live 3G, others have too. Might just be a glitch according to Flytrex, they are working on a fix.
    You might contact your Flight tracker support and see if they have any ideas.

    Good luck

    Thanks for the ideas. I have tried cleaning the contacts with no luck. I use FPV Booster and I contacted them. They told me if it is showing up on their app, then that is the message being produced by the DJI SDK.
