    Hold the power button down for 5 seconds and watch the lights. If all 4 light up, health is 90-100%, if the 4th light blinks it's 80-90%, etc

    Is the price competitive with the current DJI reduced sale price?

    Against last week's pre-sale price, it's very good.
    Current sale price is US$799 - with no case and only 1 battery.
    If it's a good bird that's not too bad.
