    Hello,
    I have a question, about P2V battery cycling!

    They say, after every 15-20 charge cycles, you are supposed to " Cycle "
    Or refresh your batteries. They say discharge to no less than 8% ( or until battery no longer turns on
    , then fully charge batteries!
    My question is:
    Is 8% through the app ( % ) or ACTUAL 8% on battery?

    I take it to 8% through app, but battery still turns on?

    Am I doing it right?

    Thanks for any assistance!

    Take care, fly safe!

    I think this is the key part. Or until the battery doesn't turn on. The 8% via the app would be sufficient.
    Depends on how **** you are:)

    ;) It pays to cycle through the forum list!! That was my question. Thanks for the information. I was satisfied with the 8% on the app. Soooo thanks :)
