asme issue on my mini roller. Battery has life, phone says it died right upon take off so it lands. Definitely an error in the app on the phone, or the communication between the drone and phone cause the battery is full as the battery gets.

Hi im having the same issue with my bebop 2 battery this seems to have happened after i updated the drone to the latest firmware and freeflight pro, I never had any issuies before this.
Basically i connect the battery onto the quad it shows full 100% but before i even arm the drone you can see the battery percentage dropping, when i hit take off the drone flys for about a minute and its down to 20%, the battery is not warm, i then remove the battery and place it on charge, the red light comes on solid then within 1 minute the green light is back on telling me the battery is fully charged, i have also checked the voltage with a meter and i have a reading of 12.60 v, there must be either a software issue or firmware ?
Also i tryed a battery from my friends bebop this acts just the same, and my battery works fine in is bebop
Please help i cannot fly my bebop 2 like this
Apple os ipad air
very latest firmware and software

LiPo Batteries have to be stored with 50 to 60% charge in order to prevent discharge during a long time without use. If the charger blinks red while charging, then a defect is detected and the battery needs to be replaced. Please, contact your retailer or Parrot Customer Service to know more about batteries warranty.

Hi, just reading through some old posts on here and was interested in your battery percentage (drop) issue?
Did you ever have any luck finding a solution?

I am having the same issue as you stated above. Did you ever get a solution? Did buying a new battery fix your issue?

No, I meant 30 second warning and it forces landing is completely normal. Just like everyone else's drone does. It is a default behaviour. If you like to change that. You can purchase a third party drone app which called DroneControl from iTunes App Store. It can allow you to set the capacity warning thread hold manually. Which means you can even set the warning to be triggered when the capacity remains 50%, 60%..etc. But as a good practice of flying. You should always keep watching on the percentage indicator of the power battery.

Although I don't understand what you are referring to. But shaking a Li Po battery won't help of extending battery life or last longer during a flight.
