    Hi guys, now with the new feature of 3.06 firmware, what do you think is best and why,when you hit the lowest limits of battery warning? I'm having mine as autoland but I'm wondering if this is a wise move since all these battery failures

    I guess it depends where you fly.
    If you fly over water, autoland is a bad thing, but if your whole flight area is accessible, then maybe.

    I use RTH, but also head for home when the battery hits 30%. I then just womble around my landing site until the 2nd warning, then land.

    Hmmm I guess that's a reasonable answer and will do the same. Thanks!
