Has any one serviced their drone ?
What type of service have you done on your drone,
Is this a visual service,
The reason I am asking is because on the Healthy drone app it says service is due on my Mavic, And service is due in 4 flights for my batteries.

As far as I know that's just a reminder that you should do a full discharge, full charge on your battery so you get more accurate readings on your flight time estimations. It seems that was an issue in the past, but I'm not really sure if it is still needed with the Mavic's "Inteligent" batteries.  I find a lot of advices here and there coming from people with a long career flying drones that simply don't apply anymore (I.e. the IMU, compass calibration every time, etc) which they'll keep doing because it worked in the past even when DJI disencourages such practices (i.e. calibrate only when prompted, etc...)

I'd however love to hear some words from any DJI representative on fully discharging/charging your batteries periodically.

On the drone service I'm not really sure what it means, but you still have the "Details" option to click on, so I'd suggest you do that. I'm guessing it relates to verifying propellers (or replacing them) and such things.

Interesting, following since it's my first drone.

On the battery section: http://www.dji.com/support/product/mavic it states manual full discharging/charging is not required on these batteries (FAQ number 8) ???

Interesting, and what I would expect from a battery called "Intelligent". Let's see what Natalia gets back from the engineers...  Information must be aligned from user manual/faqs/forums/whatever...

I've noticed that the healthy drones website does allow you to click further about what you're required to do with the 'service':

After looking this is the info Healthy drones gives out, Does DJI Technical agree with this.

Thank you

We confirmed the information, since it's a third party software, we're not able to evaluate it.
As mentioned above, there is no need to full discharge and charge the intelligent battery.
Please connect your remote to dji go app and check the battery info on the app.

So no need to do anything with the battery, And the service for a Drone is just visual checks.

Cool
Thank you Natalia
