    I currently have my settings for the critically low battery set at 10%. Today when I was attempting to fly I received the error soon after takeoff when the battery went from 58 to 57. I tried another battery that was less and experienced the same thing. I powered the drone down for a little and then tried again with the lower battery and was able to fly fine until that got under 20. I put the 57% one back in and couldn’t fly. Does anyone have any guesses as to why this would be happening? I did receive the ESC error yesterday. Maybe they are related. Thanks!! The photos are posted below.

    This may or may not help your issue, but your 2 battery settings are extremely low. Bump your low battery up to around 30% and critical to 20% this could be related to the calculations in the AC for smart battery RTH. Just something to try.

    Did you take off with a fully charged battery. The top picture shows 57%.
