FLying today, put in a bat a thought was charged fully, only registered 60%, decided to fly it anyway.  About a minute into the flight, the landing goes into landing mode and it does a critical emergency landing due to low bat.  The bat percentage still registering at aroung 50%.  Anybody have any clue WTF happened???  Thx Bolton

If the battery had not been charged recently, it would have gone into self-discharge mode, preparing itself for storage, int his state the battery will drain rapidly. Never take off without a freshly (fully) charged battery.

anything less than 70% creates a mess for me and I mean a mess, warning messages, motor overloads, battery discharges, whatever new warnings DJI incorporated into the last firmware.app updates I get, not to mention very frequent disconnects. Put in a 100% battery and all is pretty well, I'm not going to use the word perfect as that would be misleading at best. Charge 100% if your battery does not charge to 100% there is an issue you should look into, refresh it by discharging it to 5% or so an then charging it to 100%.

Read the instructions!!! If you don't fully charge your battery to 100% before ANY flight, you risk killing someone. Just don't be LAZY and say 60% I'll just fly anyway, real pilots MINIMIZE risk they don't embrace it. SAFETY FIRST!!! Ken.

I wish you would read my post thoroughly before making stupid ass comments!!  I've got way more flight time than you, so I don't need any newbie lessons.  Something happened that has never happened before.

YO Tri,

This is across multi platforms......Mavic/Phantom/Inspire/Air/Spark

Partially charged batteries do not read correctly in the GO/GO4 app.  You can "see" a 60% reading, however once in the air please check your CELL READINGS.

Anything less than 3.7vdc/cell CAN BE DANGEROUS.  Flying with 60% AND 3.65vdc/cell can cause you to crash/lose the AC.

The SYSTEM is designed to START with a fully charged battery.......anything less can get you in trouble quickly!!

Thanks!  Finally a decent intelligent response.  I didn't check cell voltage in flight/under load, just on the ground and everything was fine.  haven't had a chance to fly the Inspire again yet but will soon and check it out.  Thanks you your response!  Bolton
