    How often are you recharging the battery on your range extender? The quick start guide mentions that you should charge it after each use. I would think that would shorten the life of the battery. How much battery life would there be remaining if I waited for the low battery life indicator to come on? Also what kind of battery life are you getting on the transmitter batteries?

    I always recharge when finished for the day. I will also recharge if it has been more than a few days since it was last used. It seems this battery discharges quite a bit while not in use. I charged it after flying a couple of weeks ago and it went unused for about a week. It took a hour to top off the battery.

    I also did not fly for about 10 days and it took several hours to recharge so it drains a lot when not in use. So now I just plug it in after flying or the night before if I plan to fly the next day.

    Yeah... I'm seeing the same thing. It stays charged for quite a while, but it takes forever to top off...

    That is great to hear. I just ordered my 3rd battery, 40 mins of play time was just not enough.
