Like most of you, I have purchased extra batteries for my Phantom 2. On two separate occasions, I have experienced a very quick depletion of juice. I start out at 98% everything is fine. Once I hit about 60% I notice the percentage drops quickly. I usually fly to 32% then land. The other day things were fine and I noticed red flashing lights. The monitor showed about 18%. It went from 30+ percent to 18% in just a few seconds. So, I landed. I had a similar experience with another battery sometime ago. Otherwise, the other batteries perform fine and I get about 12 to 14 minutes of flight time.
Thanks in advance.
