Measuring battery strength EC3 connector (Parkzone Radian)

I'm not quite sure where to start and I have searched, but this must be a common issue: What's best practice for keeping up with how much time is left on my 1300mAh three cell? I try to keep up with how much flight time, but that's not always a good indicator if I'm mostly soaring without the throttle engaged. I do have a standard Volt/Ohm multimeter unit, for example, though not sure what measure.

Thanks for any suggestions,

Chuck

Measuring voltage between flights with you meter will give a pretty good indication of charge remaining:

I have one of these and it works very well. I think this is the way to go. It's cheaper than the one below.
