    [Aero RTF] Is there a way to monitor energy consumption of the battery?

    kaxiaaa

      Hi,

       

      I'm trying to monitor energy consumption during the flight and I found MAVLink messages 'BATTERY_STATUS.current_consumed' and 'BATTERY_STATUS.energy_consumed'.

       

      But I found that their values are some garbage numbers like 0 or -1. Does that mean I need some dedicated hardware to monitor energy consumption of the drone? Or is there any way around it?

       

      Any help would be welcome. Thank you.
