Fair weather flyer.
Should I try to discharge or just leave the battery alone?
Or if you've upgraded to the latest battery firmware, just store it and if it's above 65%, it'll safely self-discharge after 10 days untouched.
I did not know that about the new firmware. Good to know.
Where is the info on the auto-discharge?
CapnBob, DJI mentions it at the link below, but they don't discuss it in detail:

From my informal testing, it will auto-discharge a battery that is >65% full down to 65%, after 10 days of no activity. No activity means you never touch the button to turn it on, or even check the charge. It takes a little over a full day to discharge a full battery down to 100%.
If you are in the habit of storing your batteries full (not recommended, but I do it sometimes too) and don't want it to auto-discharge, just tap the power button every week or so to reset the 10-day timer.
