Other than discharging the batteries by activating the propellers, is there another way to properly discarge the batteries? Please advise.

Yes you can use a resistor bank. I run 3 batteries in parallel  with a 14 amp total current draw which is close to 1C for each battery.

Hi,
In the Go app under the battery tab is the ability to change when the batteries auto discharge to a safe storage voltage, ( 1 to 10 days) unless you have need to rapidly discharge this seems the best way for me and you don’t have to have a real grasp on electrical theory. Nil method is robust but needs some skill and knowledge  to setup which might not be everybody’s cup of tea. I have an adaptor that I made from a spare charger that uses a M600 battery to run an Osmo, that soon nocks the stuffing out of it, the osmo pro is a power hungry beast.

Cool set up. Thank you!

I will look into this. Thank you for the advise!

I agree with Ricci`s post about this.
I just set my number of days to drain the batteries and sit back.
I don`t worry about them and I let the intelligent batteries do their thing and automatically drain themselves.
If you fly often, than set them to drain at 1 day.
If not set them to drain at 7 or 10 days.
I personally don`t like to leave my batteries fully charged for more than a day or two.
