My v1 craft shows the same thing with the X5.
50% battery after 3.5 minutes of flight? Something not right there?
Full IMU calibration can take 10-12 mins but I would expect the battery to still be sitting at somewhere above 95% at that point.
You absolutely sure that's a good pack?
have you done a full cycle? bringdown to bellow 5% and recharge?
I have the same issue with a 148 in a Inspire1 with a X3 that's crashed twice plus a take off on its own and rapid discharge twice and DJI won't do a dam thing about the battery. I just use the battery inside use, no flying. DJI wanted me to ship it back to them, not to where I bought it for replacement.
I don't think changing the motors is going to make much of a difference unless they are somehow more efficient. Power is power. Motors that require more power are going to tax the battery even more.
Chnjab, which smart power charger do you use?
I don't know much. Does it matter if it's sitting in the red? I flew my inspire with the x5 for the first time this past weekend, and it was always low voltage. It was very cold -9.4 Fahrenheit - but I was watching the battery temp.
Nothing bad happened - but it was always in yellow if I was moving, green while hovering, and red when braking or doing extreme maneuvers.
Many of us own a SmartPowerCharger - inspire in my case.
Battery calibration , as opposed to just a cycle is what I believe he meant.
Tommybear- who has business interests in this company confirms that the SmartPowerCharger (Matrice as well as Inspire) will cycle your battery , NOT condition them.
You must condition them first and there are a few ways to do this. It amounts to doing first : 'full' charge with - preferably - a DJI charger ; not the SmartPowerCharger.
Secondly; you now must discharge your battery until the battery turns off by itself , perhaps in craft hovering slightly but search methods.
Thirdly; the discharge must be done in one session all at once. Otherwise , repeat entire process.
I'm sorry to say that my experience with this product has been less than average.
Designer said that it is FW upgrade ready.
1) DJI chargers completely charge batteries to 100% - check GoApp
2) SmartPowerCharger will not charge to 100 % - will shut off bats with more potential charge left.
DJI chargers will continue to charge same battery for another 10 or so minutes.
3) SPC will cycle , but will not condition batteries. This is misleading marketing.
