    From B&H Photo's website, it states the Phantom 4 Intelligent Flight Battery has been discontinued. What's the word?

    Someone probably pushed the wrong button, unavailable at this time? You ask via live chat? I am a fan of theirs for many years.

    I'll be calling in the morning to order a P4 and iPad Air. I'll ask then.

    There is still one listed saying discontinued. Do a search on a P4 case and you might find it

    I think that he possibly ment, are the old batteries great too or just the new ones. Cracking is used in some parts of England to replace "great" and "good".

    If that's not the case then this guy knows something I don't.

    No not cracking in a good way. There is a small spring that works with the release buttons - it's pushing outwards and cracking the face of the battery where the leds are.

    Link included for pics of cracks; firmware update didn't do it.

    Cracked battery mid-flight after updating firmware

    Cool, I know from my experience that these iPad Air 2 64gb Cellular are the bomb. While not literally but you know... ;-) blow everything else out of the water in Phantom performance.
