    Hi Trev, I use the small battery alarms in all my models, (like the type rooky sailor mentioned.)
    They can be set to a minimum voltage with the button on the end. You can hear them in the planes about 100m away.

    Hi JB,
    Do you use a low voltage alarm on your boats when operating them?

    Try this one Dave, it's main purpose is to protect the lipo cell charge when in the boat, different to the one you use at home to check the balance and voltage.

    jbkiwi,
    That looks like a great meter.
    However quite a number of my boats are 2S.
    I'd need to add a second power source for the meeter ....

    So far my collection resembles "The Island of Misfit Toys". I've picked up several boats that are old builds and have been neglected. I'm giving them the TLC they need, hoping to bring them back to their former glory. Once I get enough practice/ experience I intend to take on a full build.

    Agreed, quite a good reliable monitor, but don't think it has an alarm, not one for putting in your boat when sailing to check for low voltage.

    If you want to check the load on your motors, as well as balancing, voltage checking (individual cells as well) these are a great tool if you can find one. I always use these after charging to double check cell balance. Also has a temp port.

    mtpurin,
    Thank You.
    That is the one I have been looking at.
    It is good to hear that several of you have experience with it, and like it!
