    Took out my brand new P3A for its first flight this morning and it flew fine for the first 5 minutes then it said warning motor obstructed and critically low battery. Before take off both the RC and AC batteries were 100% and was only down to 62% 3.9v when it said low battery? Any ideas?

    At the time DJI GO showed the "Motor Obstructed" warning, there was a bunch of bogus data in your flight log. I'm assuming both messages displayed due to some kind of glitch since it did not affect the Phantom's flight performance (or so you did not indicate it did).

    If you're not running the latest firmware, it might be a good idea to install it. That way you'll at least be running with the most up-to-date software. DJI does not provide a comprehensive list of all fixes made in each firmware release, so there's really no telling how many uncommonly reported issues were fixed.
