I was flying normally within 300m radius in normal mode
I landed  it was warm outside I'll say 29-32c
But am worried of it crashing due battery stopping due to heat

No need to be worried. As the Spark pulls current out of the battery, it heats itself up due to the internal resistance of the battery. The battery is hermetically sealed in a platic casde, so it can't cool itself very good.
If battery temp rises significantly higher than that, it would be an indication of a malfunction or battery dying soon.

Cheers,

Sorry to correct; not 'internal resistance' but chemical reactions. Cheers.

I agree with DJI Stephen.
While you could operate normally to the outside...inside the battery could be damaged.
Just like flying a battery that is too cold

Airport and Oil Fields are off limits
but u can fly as high as you want and far tho the spark is CE mode Default i switched it to FCC

if u buy the drone from DJi u need ur Civil ID tho buying it from 3rd party electronic shop will skip that

Rules are very Relaxed almost not existent lol

yea that is to be expected Heat is the worst enemy for Lipo Batterys
am not worried abut needing a new Battery more off a sudden drop in current from the internal head and resistance

good info
but whats weird is that it started to happen those few days
i dont mind buying batterys sooner but afraid of it cutting power due to heat and resistance
whats the max temp for lipo to keep constant power?

500m its breath taking to do so at sunrise u see it a few min on that height before on ground
tho i cant reach the clouds i need 800+ min
i will downgrade to .300 later on when i get a new drone so i can break the 500m limit damm that no glitch exists to break that limit

tho i rarely fly more then 150m lately ot much up there lol

here is Pic at 500m sunrise

Stephen..the temp you quote is the outside air temp limit...not the internal battery temp limit.  The internal battery temp will always be above 40C after flight from my experience.

Scandinavian pilot here.

According to Airdata, my highest batt temp has been 55°C/130°F.. when outside temp was close to 30°C/85°F.

No negative effects so far..

60 cent(140f) is max tolerable temp for battery itself. Repeated temps near this will degrade battery life significantly.
