    What is best method do storing Phantom and batteries? My daughter just got diagnosed with Leukemia and we will not be able to fly for quite a while. She has been my copilot. I want everything in great shape when we are able to fly.

    Store the Phantom in a case if you have one, the batteries should be stored at about 50% power and then discharged and recharged about every 90 days according to DJI. Store the batteries in a fireproof container in an area with 'normal' humidly and temp.

    ^ this.
    use the "storage" setting if you have a charger that supports that...and it'll do it all for you.

    I put mine in a Lipo bag and then put them in the refrigerator after i put them in storage mode
