    I got my first Drone a Phantom P4 at the end of July. Used it 3 times. On a full charge, no propellers sitting on the floor, doing nothing, just turned on it, takes about 5 minutes for the battery to go from 95% to 90%.

    Is this normal?

    thanks.

    If the AC is just sitting there on and with out air flow will activate the cooling fans within the AC. This is extra draw on the battery. To be sure, check your battery status and see if there is any deviance between cells and voltages.
