So I got the software update for the phoenix link and was wondering what the setting auto-lipoly meant? What kind of setting's are you guys using anyhow?

Auto Lipo, simply detecys the pack voltage when plugged in, and sets the cutoff accordingly.

It sees a 3 cell pack at 11 to 13 volts, and sets the cutoff to 9V.

If you always use a 3 cell, as most people in a shogun do, just set the lipo to 3 all the time. That way you can be sure you wont have problems.

The problem with auto, is that if you use a pack a little and unplug it, then plug it in again, it may get the wrong voltage reading, and possibly set it for a 2 Cell.

I setup my Cutoff for 4 volts. the shogun NEVER reaches that , in fact the Shogun is hard pressed to fly with anything less then 9 volts.

so I do not worry about cutoff, the chopper will land well before I reach 9 volts on 3s lipo,

I notice my Shogun get slugish with about 10 volts still on the lipos

I agree with Hoverdown3k, my zoom pretty much lands itself around 9.5 to 10volts. By the time I get in to the charger (astro 109) it is reading around 10.5-11volts.

I set my cutoff to 6.0volts, I'm running 3cell lipos.

Cheers,
Leslie
