Re: Expensive brick

There has to be firmware for Li-ion batteries, as the charging needs to be controlled. Plus you need to have a battery meter - which are quite unreliable on consumer tech. In the case of a drone that presumably has to auto-land on low battery status - I guess you need a method to test the battery meter and re-calibrate it every so often.
