Default Li-saver works

Want a good new product to prevent lipo damage? Li-saver from Cermark really works. I have accidently ruined more than one expensive lipo pack by over discharging because of low bec cutoff from standard speed controls. I just bought 3 $94.00 Jeti's on sale from HL a few months ago for $50.00. Then went lipo. I don't want to spend another $100.00 plus for newer lipo safe controllers. I saw the Cermark add for the Li-saver and gave it a try. It works well. When pwer to the cells drops near 3 Volts per cell the controller starts to pulse the throttle at WOT. At a lower draw it cuts it all togather like a standard bec. Flight time is about a minute less than with a standard bec but lipo's were still above 3 V per cell.

Note that the Li-saver must be taken out of line with the bec and rx if you want to switch back to Nimh or Nicads.

At $25.00 I will order one for each of my big planes. And still save money over a new controller.
