I have read reports that storing the LiPo battery on a full charge is a bad idea, and might lead to problems. Can anyone point out an official set of recommendations from DJI about this? How much juice should be showing on the battery when it goes back in the kit for an extended period of time? And, similarly, how long of a period is considered "safe" to store a battery on full charge?
 
With the Phantom 2 batteries on newer firmware they self discharge at ten days so that's a start point.
Ideally less than a week though.
Longer than that they want to be on about 50%.
Leaving them low is probably just as bad as full.

in settings on your app when you go to battery status you can adjust your amount of the days before discharge, default is set to 10 day
