    I just got my Phantom 3 Standard in the mail yesterday and I read through everything, set it all up, and updated the firmware. I then proceeded to turn the phantom on and connect it to the DJI app and where it normally says "Safe to Fly", it said battery error. Does anyone know how to fix this or if you have experienced this before? Any help is appreciated. I just really want to fly my drone...:) I have attached some screenshots of the DJI app to show you what I am talking about. This is also the link for all the images: DJI Phantom 3 Standard Battery Damaged

    @Benjamin Garcia

    I have the exact same issue with mine...

    I ordered it from Amazon and the DJI app shows the same battery problem, the 3rd cell in the battery has lower voltage when compared to other cells. Tried a "full" discharge and then recharge, still same issue.

    If I do the "5 seconds" test on the battery, it shows the battery is at 90%~100%, all 4 solid green lights.

    I did however, contact the seller and he sent me a replacement but didn't provide a tracking number, so I guess I will have to take his/her/their word for it.
