    Sudden Battery Power Loss

    Today on a job I had something happen that has never happened before. First battery in, everything checks out, so I do my normal routing. Hover about 30 seconds at shoulder height, and wait to see if anything is wrong. No issues, so I head to 400ft AGL to get the initial shot which is a birds...

    Dropped Out of the Sky

    Well, my Evo 2 Pro v1 was heading across a snowy forest and suddenly dropped out of the sky. Probably a battery issue. It's in about ten feet of snow now so I'll go back in the spring. It was flying and then went into "Connecting" and never did. No visual of it tumbling down on the video...

    Have you retired any batteries?

    I have six Evo II batteries and four of them are starting to bulge ever so slightly. I feel a little resistance when I insert them into the drone. These batteries all have 60-80 cycles according to the app. Is it time to pull them from service? I was hoping the app would give me some...

    Battery Shows Charging... but Never Does?

    Hello! One of my Autel Evo II Pro batteries refuses to charge. It shows as charging (the lights cycle up as usual) but the moment it's off the charger it is completely dead. Tried the multi-charge Hub (both modes) and directly to the wall-plug charger. Thoughts?

    EVO 1 Old Age Problems?

    Purchased my Evo 1 back in late 2018. Never crashed it or had any real issues with the drone until just last week when I dusted her off and wanted to fly again. It's been almost 10 months since the last flight so obviously charged up the batteries and controller. Took off and almost immediately...

    Swollen battery identification method

    This may not help everyone but it's my new way of determining if my battery is going bad. We all know swollen batteries are a sign of bad or going bad. I had my second one go bad in flight and got the Damaged Battery notice before it tried to return home. Looking closely at all my batteries I...

    Battery or Bird failure

    HELP!?!? What happened?? I was flying a way point mission, pre-scouted area for any obstruction, nothing within 1/2 mile. Upon completion of the mission I had 57% battery life. Bird rose to 300 ft. which was the programmed altitude. Immediately upon reaching 300 feet the battery dropped from...

    Another battery question

    I have a question about a battery, that some one may have an idea of what's going on. I purchased a bundle, with several batteries included. One of the batteries, although it performs well, will allow me to get the low battery warning, but, it won't perform a return to home, automatically. The...

    X-Star Premium battery issue

    Hi! This summer I experienced a problem with one of the batteries on my X-Star Premium. I was flying the drone at about 90 feet pretty much straight above me with the flight time remaining of approximately 13 minutes. All of a sudden it dropped to zero and the drone came down. Fortunately I...
