Scary incident - At my first 20 battery charge, I stated to run the juice out at 15% after my last flight. DJI says to run it down to 8%. So I sat it down and left it running to run it down to 8%. However at 10% it stopped!!! Now if I was flying... what would have happened???? Would have it just died???

It would have automatically landed before then.

Thanks for your replay... Automatically landed where?? Home or where it ran down to 10%.

Are you say since it was home/on the ground it knew that and shut down at a 10% charge and if it were not it would have continued to fly home with the juice left???

I just want to make sure it does not drop out of the sky when I am flying home and it says that I have a 10% charge,

If i remember right my p2v did this too and i just restarted the props and let it run down to 8%....I'm pretty sure it stopped knowing it was not descending.
