Do you know when your voltage goes low?


I can feel it right away when my battery voltage goes little bit below 10 volt for a 3 cell pack - it does not respond to my throttle stick as much as when the voltage is still high. I am wondering if that is just my set up?? So if I begin to feel it when it goes a little bit below 10 volt, would I ever hit the cut of at 3 or below per cell? Let' see at what voltage your heli begins to not response as it is with a full voltage and you begin to feel it.

I play it safe and fly for only 8:00 minutes. That uses about 1400MAH from my 2100 MAH cells.

I ordered Thanh's lights which also monitors the battery voltage. it is on the way but I'd like to know if anyone experiences heli flight is affected when the voltage goes below 10 volts. If that is normal then even with the Thanh's light or that light on batsapr, it probably will never get to the alarm point.

You should be stopping WAY before the pack starts to sag. Especially if you're only flying gently as it will be harder to tell......

About 8 mins of flight ... 10 mins is the maximum.

maybe I'm not that good yet, but really I don't feel any different when flying with the batt below 10 volts. I know when it's bellow 10 volts, the alarm kicks in a lot often than when it's above 10 volts.
