- At all time store batteries between 10ºC and 40ºC.
- Make sure the batteries are fully charged before each flight.
- Always check the battery and connector mechanical integrity before any operation. There should be no battery deformation or exposed conductive part as soldering or metal.
- Land immediately the aircraft when the battery critical warning cues in Flyability Cockpit.
- In addition to the battery percentage, pay attention at all time to the voltage displayed on Flyability Cockpit – land at 10.2V. At 10V, the aircraft should be on the ground, disarmed.
- Do not let the aircraft idle for too long before unplugging the battery.
- If the battery’s voltage drops at any time below 8V or if the battery’s state of charge reaches 0%, it might be damaged, do not try to charge or use the battery anymore and dispose of it as described in the Battery Disposal section below.
- In the case of unusual behavior, keep the battery in a battery safe bag, store the Log file for analysis, and contact Flyability.
Low Temperature Operation (0ºC and 10ºC)
- In addition to the battery percentage, pay attention to the voltage displayed on Flyability Cockpit – land at 20% or 10.2V, whichever comes first. At 10% or 10V, whichever comes first, the aircraft should be on the ground, disarmed. Do not wait before unplugging the battery.
- In general, fly carefully and shorten your flights.
- Charge batteries fully only if you plan to use them in the three followings days
- After a flight, let the batteries cool down to room temperature before charging them. It generally takes about 30min.
- Do not charge your batteries in temperatures below 15ºC or above 35ºC.
- Every 20 cycles, check the balancing of your battery. The battery should not be used if the voltage difference between the cells is greater than 0.03V after recharge.
- Always place your batteries in a battery safe bag and in a safe area while charging. Never leave them unattended.
- The charger stops charging when the battery is fully charged, but it is good practice to monitor the charging process and disconnect the battery when fully charged.
