This newly improved voltage checker is something I use all the time. The previous version used LED’s to show the condition of the battery, but only measured 4 and 5-cell NiCd/NiMH batteries, or 2-cell LiPo’s, with a maximum voltage of 15v.

It is a heavy hauler with a huge camera platform for either shooting below the fuselage or by mounting a pan/tilt on top. No prop to interfere with photography either. The design is excellent with regard to CG. In [...]
