    Bad battery?

    I have a battery that goes from 98% to < 10% in under 4 minutes. It also recharges to 100% in a very short time. Has anyone else had this experience? Any remedies?

    Solo battery suddenly showing 1% battery life on a freshly charged battery.

    Frequently when flying my solo I get a message saying battery at 1 % or sometimes 10%. This happens way too soon into a flight on a fresh battery. Is anyone else having this issue? Anyone know how to remedy this?
