    flashing red light

    When the battery on my stampede was low (i don't know if this is the problem) the light on the transmitter flashed red about 5 or 6 times then went green, i would like to know if this means low battery or something else. Thanks

    If it ain't broke, upgrade it.

    Slow Blinking Red (with Low-Voltage Detection on): The VXL-3s has
    entered Low-Voltage Protection. When the battery voltage begins to reach the minimum recommended discharge voltage threshold for LiPo battery packs, the VXL-3s will limit the power output to 50% throttle. When the battery voltage attempts to fall below the minimum threshold, the VXL-3s will shut down all motor output. The LED on the speed control will slowly blink red, indicating a low-voltage shutdown. The VXL-3s will stay in this mode until a fully charged battery is connected.
