    What methods can I use to preserve battery life. Mines is going down slowly. It's currently 78% and I've had it for 4-5 months now

    Do you drain and reset the battery per the manuals instructions?

    And I leave the batt under 50% when not in use for a couple of days. I've never really drained it completely

    In the manual it tells you to reset the battery after a certain time by draining it to 8% to prolong its life

    After 20 cycle to do a reset when you fly your drone drop it down to 50% if you want to go to sleep mode once you have completed 20 cycles drop your battery down to 30% land leave the battery on let it decrease to 8% then fully charge it also your battery has a warranty up to six months or 200 cycles so call dji and get a brand new battery
