    Hi - I have two new batteries that I always charge fully before flying but when I get to the field and power up
    they are almost always at 97% or 98% - rarely 100%. Does anyone know why this might be?

    I asked the same thing, and when I started the thread, I thought it was dropping overnight, but later noticed it fresh off a full charge saying 98%. I can't say that I've ever seen 100% in the Go app.

    If you haven't tried this, say your going to fly in an hour or so. Turn on the battery like you would normally, click, click hold either on the charger or before you hook up the charger, then when it quits charging see if that gets to 100%, been going to try it, read it some time ago.
