Voltage cutoff for 3 cell Lipo
I want to use a Castle Creations Pixie 20P with a 3 cell, 1250 mAh Lipo, 11.1V from Common Sense RC. The battery manufacturer recommends the voltage cutoff at 3.2 V per cell (9.6V total). However, the Pixie 20P program option for 3 cell Lipo is 8.4V. Has anyone else run into this problem? Can I use the 8.4V cutoff safely with the 3 cell Lipo?
What ESC can I use ?

I also set my LVC to 9.6 volts. The experts say it is important to not let any cell get below 3 volts. Since some cells discharge faster the others, I am just trying to make those expensive Lipos last as long as possible. I'm not cheap just frugal!

You must have one in an older package since this was addressed some time ago and the industry has since settled on a minimum of 3v/cell.
You can get a great lipo low voltage device from Diversity Model Aircraft called the Li-Saver.
