    Seems like mostly normal use*, and the battery, 5 minutes after landing was 120F. Is that normal? I just wanted to know if that's "par for the course" and nothing to worry about. I'm not going to charge it until it cools, which is only logical.

    * It's a hot day here today, 90 degrees F. I just flew around the back yard, landing 6 or 8 times for a minute or two, so not continuous flying. I didn't do any full power ascents, although I did put it in "A" mode and zoom around for a minute or two during one flight.

    I flew a couple days ago it was around 83 degrees out, i was flying over a lake with some speed for 19 minutes and landed with my battery at 47 degrees Celsius which is about 117 Fahrenheit.
    I don't think you should be too worried.

    You should be okay but I wouldn't recommend you letting that happen too often as eventually it could cause damage to the battery
