    Hey guy, the brown truck finally drop my phantom 2 at my door few minutes ago.. After oppening the box, i turn on the drone and the battery is around 25-50% my question is, do i need to charge it before using it or i can start with this charge in the battery... Thanks in advance.

    Charge it first. You should only fly with a fully charged battery.

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Phantom Pilots forum. I hope that you will take advantage of the benefits that come with membership and that you will be able to use the forum for the exchange of innovative ideas and as a resource for current developments in Phantom quadcopter’s.

    It is in your best interest to learn about LiPO batteries. They do require some additional care that traditional batteries you might use do not. I store mine in an old ammo can for safety.
