All of our drone prototypes use LiPo batteries to provide power. These are a good choice in terms of current delivery, size, weight and capacity. However, you don’t want to over discharge them or you can impact battery life. To help prevent this we developed a library which can be used to regularly check the battery voltage, allowing us to take action if it gets too low.
