    Heres a question wondering what everyone else does with their batteries, if I fly and run my battery say down to 30% and I dont plan on flying say in a week or so is better to top them up till they are say around 40-45%....this is what I have been doing the last while, sometimes when I land it might be at 25% so I hate to leave it at that if I aint gonna fly for a week or more so I just put it on the charger and charge it up till somewhere around 40-45% disconnect it and store it in my case, not sure iof this is right or not, whats everyone else do?

    In the DJI instructions or wherever I read it, they recommended having the batteries no more than 65% while stored away if not flying for several days so as not for them to swell. I usually fly til I'm about 30% or lower and leave them that way until the day before I plan to fly and then charge em all up.

    What your doing is exactly what I do. Usually after the battery cools I charge it until the third LED starts to blink. Then unhook it. And store it until I'm ready to fly again
