Why LVC kicking on my MCX

I haven't flown this little guy in at least 9 months. Last time I flew, it was fine. Now it doesn't matter what "good" battery I use, 20 to 30 seconds the low voltage cutoff kicks in and flight is over. The batteries are fine cause I'm getting 5 to 7 minutes with the same batteries in my MSR.
Seems to me I had this issue once before, but I can't remember how it was resolved? Damm it's tough getting to be in those senior years.
I have a great memory, it just doesn't last too long, lol...

Could also be a faulty motor (tail prolly) drawing out too much power and cutting you off in flight.

How does one check motors without buying new ones? By the way, there is no tail motor on an mcx.

Sorry, I read MCPX >_<
I don't know of any way to check a motor without replacing it (for helis with tail motor you can just unplug it and see if it works better with just the main) or without specific tools, but I'm far from a pro in this domain, maybe someone will come with a simple solution
Actually I think you can unplug one motor, give it a try, then the second one.
