    Is there a trick to these batteries. I have the fly more kit and if I charge overnight and place the battery right into the drone I get a full charge, but if I let them sit in the case for a few days the best I get out of any of the 3 is 3/4.

      DJI Mini batteries (and similar for larger drones) discharge INTENTIONALLY to 96% after idle one day and to approximately 60% within 9 days to protect the battery life, evidently holding a full charge for a length period of time can damage the batteries.

    Do you think it is worth going for this over the Mini 3 pro?
