Learn from my experience. I pushed the battery too far and had to improvise a quick landing. I stayed calm and it all worked out in the end.

Good stuff.

I think #1 Stay Calm is definitely the most important... and hardest to do.

There’s a formula for figuring out how far you can fly with a given battery percentage, although I don’t know it off the top of my head, but it will avoid the need for an emergency landing due to low battery.

My tip, return at 50 percent battery.

The time to RTH depends on several factors including wind speed and direction, and how far away you’re from the RTH point, and I’ve had an auto landing short of the RTH point due to trying to RTH at just above 50%, and ended up having to hunt down the AC.

You know you can cancel the auto landing @ 10% battery & take manual control I had to do this today & just got away with it
