On multiple occasions now I've seen "Battery Error" show up on screen prior to launch.  I've tried removing the battery and reinserting it with no difference.
It doens't happen every time and the flew just fine even with the error.

Anyone else have this?

No software inconsistencies?
Can you swap your battery with other one(maybe lend one from other user) to see if this message maybe comes due to a bad contact of Mavic connector?

No software inconsistencies were observed.

I'll try swapping batteries with my friend. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi Axiom, could you please provide a screenshot of the error message?
Also please enter the battery settings to check if there's anything abnormal.

Screenshot attached in first post. DJI support asked me to calibrate the battery and take it all the way to 0 then back to 100. I just did that and will do a test flight tomorrow again.
Checked battery settings. Nothing abnormal.

Below link shows a flight from last week which I just realized today was also giving battery error.

That is my test flight. That data came directly from my "DJI flight logs."

I don't have the combo and I did leave the batteries in the device when doing the firmware update.  How else are you supposed to turn on the craft to initial an update?

Sorry for misunderstanding.
I mean please follow our tech support's advice then do a test flight again.
And let me know if the error persists.

I'm over 5km from the airport and way under 90m. It's a caution zone, not a no fly.

Axiom, in the interest of avoiding you a nastygram from Transport Canada, their regulation on this is "Do not fly closer than nine km (five nm) from any aerodrome (i.e. airport, heliport, helipad or seaplane base, etc.)". With a major carrier operating out of there, I would worry. But that's just me.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. This pretty much means I can't fly anywhere near Toronto.

I don't know how this turned into a "You're flying illegally" when my question was regarding disconnects and battery errors.  I've done the latest firmware update and calibrated my battery so I'll test and report back.

Ask a question about your battery error, not here you won't!
Seriously, I have seen battery error multiple times as well.

Have you figured out what it means? Some other forums are saying it could be pin connector related.
