    Quick question about my DJI P2 running 1.08 firmware. I flew a bit today. My 2 batteries were at 100% charged but, at about 65-60% the P2 started to descend slowly. I had to give it more power to stay in the air. I don't think it's the batteries should I update firmware to the newest 3.6 ? Thanks

    Try checking the voltage in the Assistant Software of each cell. I think the latest firmware would also be good for the batteries health with the auto discharge to safe storage levels after 10 days idle.

    Just start a fresh Assistant Software session with each battery in turn. The update screen will tell you what is happening. Version numbers are displayed there too.
