I'm not that familiar with Mavlink and the mission planner, but can someone give me a head start on how to go about integrating the battery readings and viewing them in mission planner?
Im using a 5000maH battery. I'm putting 2 batteries in parallel to get more voltage because were using a hexacopter that needs to carry a payload of 1pound.

If you are running high voltage you may need to wire a custom voltage divider. Otherwise it should be fairly plug and play.
