    Low battery warning set at 30 and critical at 10. RTH comes on around 15 percent..just wondering if its a firmware issue. Any light on this please

    Susruth, the log you uploaded shows the low battery warning is set to 15% and the critical low battery warning is set to 10%.

    I suggest you try a little experiment. Head out for a new flight, verify the 30 and 10 settings, fly, come back, post your log here, and we'll see what it shows.
