Sweet! Let's hope the Ice series gets this!

Though... what happens if you set the limit to, say, 70%. You power up at 65%. Fly around for a while, then something weird happens and you crash. You take it home and power it up, to pull the log and investigate. As you power it up, the ESC sees that the last flight took your stored-logs up to 75%-full. 75>70%, and so it clears the logs, before you can download them. Uh-oh

Granted, who knows how often that would happen. But it would sure be unfortunate to lose the actual one you need.

Hopefully it would at least avoid clearing data if it boots up and sees a Castle Link connected? You'd still have to avoid powering it up at the field after a crash, just to see what still functions, as that could conceivably clear your logs.
