    What is the approximate life of a Phantom 3 Intelligent flight battery?

    Not the percentage of flight time, that's around 20-25 minutes. But the amount of cycles until the battery is unsafe. I heard about Phantom 2 batteries being unsafe after around 100 full cycles.

    Is the issue still alive with the P3 batteries?

    DJI's warranty covers them for 200 cycles, so I'm assuming they will at least last that long.

    I only have 28 cycles on my battery, already down to 94% battery life and reduced total charge to about 4400 mah

    I have 34 cycles and it is at 92%. Sound about right?
