I'm a new owner of a Phamtom 3 Standard and I have a question about the smart battery.  It is set to discharge after 10 days but is not discharging.  Does it have to be in the Drone to discharge?  Also, is 10 days a safe amount of days to stay charged?  My battery has been sitting on a shelf for 2 weeks and is still fully charged.  Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Why don't you just fly it for 20 minutes and don't charge again ?

That was the plan but inclement weather and work has prevented that.

It does? I did not know that, did I miss that in the manual?

A swell way to drain battery voltage, when you can't fly, is by utilizing  your handy onboard flight SIMulator. You can place the drone on an upturned fan, or near an air conditioner to help reduce the internal heat when not flying.  

The flight manual would need to be like a regular text book, if they were to print every innuendo and suggestion. Thankfully, the convenient forums are chock full of experienced RC drone pilots to help fill in the gaps and omissions. Ha

I leave a flight pack in the drone, but certainly have ample room in my Nanuk 945 drone case, for several more flight packs as well. ;-)
