Default Tell us more about this new LED

I checked the site and the manual but did not see any details.

What modes does it indicate?
Does it come with wiring?
Can you show us the circuit?
Any photos you can share?

I was confused by your statement here. I assume you meant to say that 98% of the total capacity has been drained, not that capacity has been drained to 98%... I was thinking that, in order to save the battery, that the switch tripped when the capacity had only fallen by 2%...

Sorry for the confusion, you are correct in saying 98% of the total capacity has been drained. Based on your responses, the switch isn't just to save the battery.......if you are at this point of the discharge curve, there is nothing left inside it anyway. The switch is more designed to protect the battery when the master switch has been left on etc.

Dear Bill,

I do apologize for the delay in this information and you are correct, it is not there yet! I am at the mercy of our engineering department to finalize the updates to the manual and it is expected to be up and the site by tomorrow. Please check back.

Default What can i expect

I just have one question. Considering the option of earthx because it would improve my cg.
What can i expect if the overvcharge protection kick in during a flight. ( does it put the battery offline) What would be my electrical system behavior with "no battery ".

This is a great question and we have updated our manual on the website to reflect the new models and what they bring in addition to the current models which details this question specifically. Please take a look at it under the documentation tab for the manual at www.earthxmotorsports.com. If you have further questions after reading it, please contact me again.
