(2) When below 30%, the battery icon will turn red (e.g. P2v-battery percentage1.png) and the LED flight indicator will slowly blink red. This battery level is low for flight.It is recommended that you fly your PHANTOM 2 VISION home and land it as soon as possible.

(3) After available power drops below 20%(e.g. P2v-battery percentage2.png), there is no longer enough power for flight. The LED flight indicator will begin to flash red rapidly and the PHANTOM 2 VISION will begin an automatic descent and land.

Caution: The available power thresholds mentioned above can be adjusted in the PHANTOM 2 VISION assistant software.
