I was flying my drone yesterday in about 25 degrees (fahrenheit) and the flight went great. I took the battery out of the Drone before I got in the car to drive home. When i got home, I let the battery warm up naturally once I got inside. Today I went to charge the battery and when I plug it in the light farthest from the home button starts blinking rapidly (about twice per second). Now I have not drained the battery this low before so does the light blink that rapidly when charging about 18%? I read in the manual that you should not put the battery in the Drone if the battery is giving you a warning signal, but this pattern does not show up in the manual.

Are you sure this is not the 2nd LED flashing and the color is not just bleeding over into the 1st one making it look like its the 1st one which would mean over current or short circuit.

I've had something like that before but it seemed to only do it if I try to charge it right after using it

It's the first one for sure.
Is this what a normal charge from low battery look like?

Oh do you mean the battery is completely dead? if so, Power on the battery by pressing then holding the button, then put the battery on charge. leave it for 20 mins or so and the 2nd/3rd led should also illuminate. There seems to be no error code for the 1st led so I presume it just means its dead.

Hello again, I have done some further research into this and I have found out that the 1st led flashing rapidly means critical low voltage. so all you need to do is put it on charge, it is perfectly normal for this to happen.
