    What percent do you let your remote battery get before you recharge it? I seem to be getting about 15+ flights out of a charge but am not sure how low I should let it get before charging it.

    I usually charge mine when only one light is illuminating. However, if I'm heading out for an all day event, then I always fully charge it.

    You can use your remote several times comparing it when charging your batteries. My experience is 1:10. Meaning 1 charge of the remote every 10 times the batteries. That does happen to another guy I know when charging the remote. Check it out

    You can use the remote more than once unlike the battery where you have to charge it after every flight I charge mine after 6-8 flights
