    Just did a flight and got a battery warning. Text was in orange color so I dont think it was a critical warning. It said something like "Propulous battery....". Since I have enough to keep her in the air I was not able to make a screenshot of the message, but I think I read the word "Propulous". The message showed just 4-5 seconds.

    The message probably said something like 'propulsion limited'. This happens when the battery is starting to run low, it is cold and you are trying to fly at full speed.

    I concur with what Erroll says, it was probably the word 'propulsion'. There was a recent addition to the system that will warn you if power is low. ;)

    I have had that message a few times this winter. Even with battery at 95-100%. It only appears when I fly with the temp below about 40 degrees F.
