    Was flying my P3P catching an awesome sunset when all of a sudden, I get a 10% low battery warning. I instantly started to descend and thought my battery was going to die and I would watch my P3P plummet to it's demise! I kept descending and nothing happened. Got to within a few feet of the ground checking things out and then after putting the P3P away and putting my iPad away, realized that the warning was for the iPad battery! I'm wondering how many others who have had the same experience and thought it was the Phantom battery. I had terrifying thoughts of the battery "demons" taking over and destroying my P3P. Great relief, but felt kind of stupid at the time.

    I guess iPad battery level is another pre-flight check item now!
