Anyway quick question guys, need to change battery in my x12, the 2000 NiMH ain't cutting it, I've noticed that rlink is 7-12v, will a 2S still work fine once it gets down to 6.4-6.6v?
Decided to test that for you. I took a 2S "transmitter" lipo and discharged it down to around 3.2V/cell. I also reset my Rlink TX to sound the voltage alarm at 6.1V.

Plugged everything in, and it powered up like normal.



I left it set at "low" power (~600mw!) and took a walk around the building with a powered and bound receiver in hand. It never failsafed.

Came back after three minutes, and heard the voltage alarm going off...





Disconnected and got the battery back on charge right away.

It is worth noting that the Rlink was still transmitting even though the input voltage was well below the stated minimum of 7V.

On 2 cells at 6.5V my Rlink TX puts out 610mw on low power and 720mw on high. With a fully-charged 2S battery the power output levels remain the same on low power but goes to 840mw on high.
