    I am getting extremely short flight times with my Phantom 1 (FC40) I generally get 8-9 minutes with Mad Dog 2800 lipos (I have 2) and now I'm getting barely 5. I remember reading somewhere about a a way to resent the voltage or do something that would reset the batteries to make them operate more efficiently, but I can no longer find the post. Any help?

    as far as i know there is no way to reset any battery. Tho you can reset the voltage calibration in the naza assistant so that the phantom is reading the correct voltage.. Tho not taking extreme care of a lipo battery can way shorten its flight time as it losses capacity. For instance they do not like to ever be drained down to far or over changed. and also they dont like being stored drained or full for more then a few days. Which is why they should always be stored at as close to 50% charge as you can get them if you are ever going to go for more then a few days and not useing them. Other wise it will kill them pretty fast.
