    Hi all.
    I've got a P2 that's developed an interesting problem.
    The P2 will take off and then hover just fine, but then during flight the green lights are turning red to indicate a low battery, and it starts to descend just like it should with a low battery. Seems like the extra load of lifting drops the battery voltage low enough to trigger the landing more.
    The trouble is that this is happening with two different batteries that are showing 3/4 charge. Batteries are still quite new with probably only 20 flights between them.
    Has anyone experienced this?

    There are a few people complaining of similar problems. I've just sent a battery back to DJI after it started reporting strange values, 255% one minute and 10% the next causing autoland to kick in.

    There is clearly an issue!
