    Just got my multistar an had a few questions about it, first has anyone modified the warning voltages via Naza? After a few cycles I've gotten 9 min, 7.25 min, and 7.5 min until the first set of warning lights. Im using the metal CNC gimbal which I'm replacing in the next few days with the Walkera G2. Do any of you fly after the first set of warnings, also how can I fully discharge the batttery without just letting the phantom sit idle? (I'm hearing that full charge and discharge is recommended for at least the first 5-10 cycles)

    Do you know what a "full discharge" means.

    Many folks say do not go below 3.7 volts per cell. Some say 3.0, I think that's a bit low.

    Drain it too low and it's dead.

    EDIT: Yes you can change the numbers in the NAZA.

    I forget my exact settings but my 2nd level is right around 10v and I think the 1st was 10.2v or so. Forget what I put for loss tho. I am using the multistar 4000 and I get 15 min 1st warning and 18 or 19 min auto land. I rarely bring it all the way to autoland tho. Great battery. I also like the 2700 lectron pro I have that gets me 14 min to autoland
