im thinking a lipo cutoff would be ... bad

if it cuts off the battery when the voltage drops to a certain level, your car might run away

maybe you're talking about a lipo cutoff with a failsafe?
that would work but im not sure if its in production.

look into nomadio radios or spektrum telemetry. those can monitor your rx voltage and give you audible alerts and such

if you got the Protek regulator it has a low voltage detection feature, where the light will turn from green to red
