    I am a newbie. I have some new Floureon 2200mah batteries. They work fine carrying the FC40 camera but I get a low voltage indicator (flashing red light on the Phantom) immediately after take-off with the FC40 carrying a Walkera 3axis gimbal and SJ4000 camera. The voltage read-out on my lipo charger is 4.2V per cell. Can the battery be overcharged and the NAZA system is giving the warning for MAXIMUM voltage level exceeded? I'm confused!

    What's the "C" rating on the battery, it should say something like "20C discharge" somewhere on the label.

    Any other mods to your bird? Any other info to offer?

    I think your voltage is fine.

    Cell chemistry produces a nominal voltage of 3.7 Volts per cell and operating voltages between
    3.3 and 4.2 V.
