[EFLT] Was: Battery Cycle Life, Real Life Data?

This message from "Jim Keller" <jkeller1@peoplepc.com> brought to you by EFLIGHT!

At the risk of offending some, and certainly not to
criticize, but to educate, there is no such thing as
"BEC cutoff" per se (unless total loss of receiver
power is the definition).

What many call BEC is really the LVC, or "low voltage
cutoff", where the ESC interrupts motor power in order
to leave some of the battery capacity remaining to
power the BEC regulator. This is to avoid loss of
radio function.

I think thats what Don meant. The cut off is refering to the motor turning
off to use remaining power for the Rx. I take it that Don would like a bit
of juice left for a go around if needed. Cheers
