Green indicates how much battery capacity for nominal flight before the time limit required to safely return and land 

    • decreases as battery capacity diminishes during flight
    • decreases you fly away from the return location, increasing the time to return
    • may increase as you fly toward the return location, decreasing the time to return

Yellow

Yellow indicates how much battery is required to safely return

    • increases as you fly away from the return location, increasing the time to return
    • decreases as you fly toward the return location, decreasing the time to return
    • increase or decrease with the time to safely return

White tick mark
