Hi all, today I got 39 minutes of flight before my iPhone died on me. Anyone else notice that FreeFlight 6 appears to gobble up the power?FD63E9A6-6AC6-445D-BDE3-9036E2D177BF.png

All the drone apps are very heavy on resources, but this fast a drop suggests your phone's battery is well on the way out.

Apparently, only Android phones discharge very quickly as they charge the SC3 when plugded (unless you add a resistor on the USB link cable... some DIY).
I also use my iPhone 6 : it has benefited from a recent battery change (97% so far). Before this replacement, at 83%, he had a totally eratic behavior in normal conditions and was discharged in a very short time...
More likely an iPhone battery issue.

I also have a iphone 6 and the battery needed to be replaced (and the screen was stuffed) apple replaced the whole phone for about $200 AUD

Since the new battery FF6 works well with normal battery drain.
