it's inaccuracy, you can offset the value(telem page, FAS Offset). I compared to my watt meter, no blades on spooled up. watt meter 1.8A, telem 1.0A

using a current shunt is not the best way, but it does work. A hall effect sensor is much better, but much larger.

I agree with not caring about the number not being accurate, just find a good number to fly to.

i flew 3 packs today and only got to charge one back up.

telem for flight was 733mah
charger mah put back in 800mah.

pretty happy with the result.
