Better Battery Metering

Hi guys, feature / firmware request. The battery indicator is quite obsolete. I doesn't show battery life accurately. About an hour into use the meters can read anything from half to quarter way, and to test the actual battery life, I've left them running for 18 hours now, still plenty battery power left. So! 

In the meantime, how many hours should I expect from the V6II on freshly charged 2500mAh batteries? 8+ ? 16+ ? So far, they have never run flat, so I feel I spend time charging them for nothing.

  • Yup, you rarely notice a drop in battery level because they run extremely low power.

    Estimated in hours

    TX: 61 hours
    RX: 34 hours

    Information from page 7 of the user manual, attached screen capture for your easy reference.

    Cheers!
