When battery capacity is zero the indicator will change to an alert symbol and the drone will initiate a non-cancellable landing with the ability to nudge

Green

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

The white tick mark hits the yellow battery region when the user receives the already-implemented return user prompt when the vehicle has hit its maximum return limit to safely return.
