What is your voltage cutoff set at before warning and mandatory landing?

Just curious guys... what is your voltage cutoff set at before warning and mandatory landing? I just maidened my F550 yesterday and was very conservative when I set it up to 11.7 and 11.5... I got only about 5 mins hovering before the red blinking light and slow decent. I have an aluminum gimbal and a GoPro Hero2 and also retracts on it with a 5000 30c 3S battery. I should also note that it was quite windy yesterday so I know it taxed the battery extra to maintain GPS hover.

What voltage limits do you guys recommend that have been flying a while? Of course I don't want to damage the battery or fly long enough to lose the hex but I naturally want to squeeze all I can out...... safely.... Any ideas?
