Default Losi Ten T, Spektrum DX3S help

Hey guys so when I fully charge my Lipo battery for the ROSS on my lipo charger, it says fully charged 8.4V. When I plug it into the car and turn the transmitter on, it says 6.2V. The alarm comes on at 5.9V from the factory. That lasts me about 5-10 starts and 20-40 minutes of driving time when the battery is fully charged. I know they arent supposed to get below 3V per cell, but why does my transmitter say its fully charged 6.2V? My friend has one too and his does the same exact thing...

i just got the dx3s last night and it says its charged at 6.2 or so but the low voltage is at 4 not 5.9. just try setting it lower. and make sure your fail safe is setup JUST IN CASE it loses it at 4 volts. it shouldnt my friends run theirs till the alarm comes on.

the 4 volts is referring to the transmitters battery. Not the LiPo...
