    Hi all,

    I'm flying a P2V+ v3 and using a Nexus 7 (latest version). I usually pull the bird in around 35% battery and store them at this point but this time I wanted to drain each of my 3 batteries much lower since I keep reading to do this every 20 cycles or so. I didn't get any low battery audible alert from the tablet even at 15%. Sound is set full volume and the box is checked in app settings in the tablet for low battery alert. Are there settings in the assistant software that need to be changed?

    It may be that you flew and got the alarm at 35% and stopped then you are now below 35% flying with the same battery to take it even lower but the battery need to go above the 35 so when it hits that mark the alarm goes off. Just for fun drop it to 20% and dropping the battery level now see if it alarms again.
