    As a newbie, what's the thinking about discharging batteries? Necessary? When? Why?

    Try Googling LiPo battery care or similar.

    Best to store at 50% charge or about 11.4v or so for a 3S.
    Try to not store fully charged or discharged.

    "Store" refers to a few days to one week max time-frame.

    DJI has supposedly take most of the worry out of P2 LiPo use for you. :lol:
