I'm the proud new owner of a P3a. I've mentioned in another thread my wife has relented and let me buy one as it was a great price, however I'm not allowed to properly have it til Christmas.... Yay. Can't complain, the fact the Mrs let me have one is good enough for me. Anyway, my question was that I would like to test it to make sure everything works as it should, what is the best way to do that? What should I look for, how long should I fly it etc as a test only? Also in regards to the battery, how far shall I let it drop on the 1st flight? I've heard 50%. Will keeping it stored for 5 months with no activity damage the battery in any way? Thanks for your help, can't wait til Christmas...! 5 months is a long time.
