Cheers

Well put together in a "non scary" mood, good point about how having critical battery might make you decide wrongly, freak out and ...

There's been a few but almost all due to unexpected wind strength, so hopefully these videos will help reduce the casualties

That may well be true. You would hope that they are at least waiting for the green GPS ready for take off message, and that also that the message doesn't appear before it's got enough satellites itself...
