Joe, a voltage regulator would be very large, heavy and expensive, not to mention that it would eat up more power from the battery pack. Not at all practical for our application. Throttle-Tech does not regulate the LiPo pack voltage, it monitors it and compensates the throttle signal to the ESC as the battery discharges and drops in voltage. It's as if you, as the pilot had perfect knowledge at all times of what the LiPo state of discharge was, and were able to continuously compensate for it with small and subtle changes of the throttle stick to get the same response from the motor throughout the flight for whatever throttle setting you intended. Throttle-Tech reduces the pilot workload by assuring that full throttle is the same from start to end, just as 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 throttle and every point in between is the same response for the entire flight. It is a smoothly integrated response, giving the same feel and response for the entire flight throughout the full range of the throttle.
