    So annoying, says weak cell, low voltage 3.75, but flies fine?

    Any clue what I should do? Return it to DJI or will it fix itself?

    I've flown it about 16 times.

    Make sure the battery is all the way in and locked. Try a different battery. Has nothing to do with the bird.

    More than likely a bad battery (weak cell) you could try discharging it low to about 10% let cool all the way down and recharge and see what happens. I would be very careful though if you run it down flying, stay low and close to you in an open space just in case. If that doesn't work? I would return it.

    You need to check all four cells while fully charged. If there's one that's massively different in voltage than the others you need to stop flying with that battery now and rma it. Continuing to fly it is risking the bird.

    I agree with this - I would get another battery and return this one if it doesn't come back up to the proper cell voltage. I certainly wouldn't put a 1200.00 investment at risk by flying a battery that's reporting problems.
