Before it does shutdown, you should hear the motor pulsing. Sure enough, it will pulse for a little while with a new battery, but sadly, sometime with an old battery, the low battery warning doesn't last long.
I prefer to trust the good old timer. Going into pulsing is already going too low and may damage the battery. Another way to do it is to land when you feel that the power is not good enough anymore. If I want to test a battery, I simply go into a hover, which really tax it. If I can't pull out vertically anymore, it's time to land.

So you do get a pulsing when the battery gets low?

wow, I tried 2 new e-flite 1s 150 45c lipos today on my UMX Extra 300 and man more than just a solid hover, I was climbing like never before
I usually use 1s 180mah 25c Hyperions, but these new e-flite 1s 150 45c lipos breathe new life into my 2 year old Extra 300! you can hear the higher rpm, and 1/2 throttle hover, full throttle it's climbing to the ceiling of the Mall of America field HHH metrodome ceiling fast.
if you have a UMX Extra 300, try at least one of these e-flite 1s 150 45c lipos. at $4.99 they are amazing!
btw, I've noticed y 1.5 yera old 1s 180mah 25c Hyperions are a little goofy with the power depending on the connection. if I put a lipo on, sometimes it's weak, or peters out quickly. so then I set the throttle to 1/3 and gently giggle the wires/connector and after a bit I get a lot better power out of them.
