    I've noticed this once before and wondered what it was about, brought it into land and didn't notice anything strange again. Today the same thing happened.

    Open fields, no probs getting satellites, happy flashing green lights then when I got the low battery warning I noticed the indicator lights were solid red. Seemed to be flying fine. Brought it into land no probs.

    What could this be? I'm on 3.06 and the last time it occurred I was on 3.04.

    They turn solid red as a low battery warning. Time to come home and land.

    So to clarify, when I take off, one pair of lights is solid red and the other pair are green flashing showing satellite lock. When it is low battery warning time, 1 pair is soild red and the other is flashing red? That seems to make sense.

    Also I believe that the slow red flashing is for 1st battery warning and the fast red flashing is 2nd low battery warning?
