    I have the new Remote Controller (with the stupid digital gimbal control)

    I have the latest firmware, but have noticed that although the unit now appears to be fully charged, the LED stays red.

    I thought (and I have only charged it once before) that Green is On, Red is under charge, and if still connected and there is no LED showing then it is fully charged.

    Have I lost the plot ?

    OK. I have cleared this up.

    The LED does not switch off when charged, it goes green.

    Even though I could see that I had 4/4 small greens, this does not mean it was fully charged. I left it for another hour or so and the main LED went green.

    Really suprised that it took so long to top up from 3/4 to 4/4 (over 3 hours)

    I did consider it, but it was a bit early for me :)
