Are any of you using onboard battery pack monitors for your HV 7.4 volt helicopters?

Western Robotics has the Spectrum 7s lipo battery monitor and there is the Gem 2000 from Electrotek RC.

I will not be using the Align 2 in 1 on my 700N DFC with the HV system so there is really no way to be safe without some onboard monitor.

Fromeco makes the Cricket and the DC-UP.

BTW, IMHO Fromeco really knows what they're doing and they make good quality stuff. I've been using their regulators for years.

The Fromeco Sahara was the best regulator I could find. It is low drop out (LDO) which means that if your batter runs down to 5 volts you still get 4.95 volts out - a safety feature. Many regulators drop 1~2 volts up front. So if one cell in a 2S LiPo drops to zero, you can still land.
