tl;dr - Is there any way to tell on a brushless E-Revo if LVD is on?
I followed the instructions in the manual for enabling LVD, but as far as I can tell there is no way to actually confirm I did it correctly. Maybe I'm missing something.
The procedure required that I use the TQi transmitter to cycle through a series of programming options from the Mamba Monster ESC. Since there is no visual to show me what option I am on, the system beeps in specific patterns to indicate which option I am on. I navigated the beeps until the ESC beeped 7 times, paused and then beeped 2 more times. According to the manual, this signified I was at the low voltage detection option and to confirm that I wanted low voltage detection on, I was supposed to "hold the throttle to confirm" my selection.
I held the throttle, the system made two quick beeps, then it beeped 8 times, paused and beeped once more. I then shut the ESC off. Did I do it right? What is the deal with all the beeps at the end? Did I just enter into mode 8, option 1? Does that mean I messed up?
Is there any way I can verify that low voltage detection is now on?
I am trying to enable LVD because I am going to be using some lipos. If I switch back to Nimh, do I have to go through that all over again to shut LVD off? Seems like a lot of work for something simple. I noticed on some of the other car models, turning LVD on and off just requires you hold down a button.
