When you fly an electric helicopter how can you tell that the battery has no more power left?

When the power starts to fade.. land... Time it, and then fly by the timer. After so many minutes you will know your getting close to the end of the flight by the timer. Stay close and low when the time is almost finished.

Would the power cut off quickly or gradually?

You can just tell when the battery is starting to go flat. It takes more throttle to stay in the same place or do the same thing. It will start to fade slow at first, then fast after. If I'm flying NiCd batteries, then I just fly them until they can't fly anymore. If it's a LiPo then I fly it on a timer from my transmitter and stop when my timer beeps.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Is this slow loss of power very noticable when you fly?
