Default Lipo cut-off in Mamba sidewinder?

Does the Mamba Sidewinder 5700 system have a built in Lipo cut-off like the Novaks?

yes, it is not turned on by default, you will need to use the castle link to turn it on.

You dont need to use the castle link, it is one of the radio programmable options(they all are really, just to finer extents on the link). Although it is much easier on the link

I set mine for 6.2volts to have just a little bit of a safety factor. You won't notice the difference.

I use the 2S-3S auto cutoff option. So far none of my batteries have ever gone below 3.2V
