    I was flying yesterday morning, and I noticed that the throttle started to become much weaker.

    I would push it all the way up, and the Phantom would only ascend about a foot or two. Once I noticed this, I assumed that it was just low on battery and immediatly landed and switched out the batteries.

    Looking back on it, I realized it might be an issue.

    Thoughts?

    That is one of the symptoms of a low batt.
    You should have also seen the red LEDs flashing.
    This is a visual indicator of low battery.

    The lights were flashing, but they were green.
