    I was just curious as to what I can expect for life in the Phantom 2 battery? How many cycles? I probably have about 70 cycles on my 5 month old Phantom/battery and have not had any issues or decrease in flight time. Thanks.

    The Phantom Assistant software shows you the current capacity of your battery. Good idea to look at it from time to time and see how your battery is coping.

    The only problem I see is that it is not that visible when it gets up there, otherwise it looks great.

    Fly FPV. That way your monitor/app will show you the current battery percentage charge.
