    Anyone else experience Red LED flashes similar to low voltage warning when jamming the throttle when the battery is not yet completely used up? I experience this when I've had about 5 minutes flight time and then I make the phantom climb by jamming the throttle to max.

    Most like the battery load increase from the motors at full throttle drop the voltage to the warning threshold.

    Correct, a sudden and/or heavy drain on the batt can cause it to drop below warning levels for a moment, usually it will stabilize once you back off on the throttle. However, you should consider that as a pre-warning about your batt level if you do a lot of full-throttle flying.
