Yea, I think the 3.0v/cell for the default settings is a bit low. Like Brian, I generally lean somewhere between 3.2 and 3.4 per cell to be safe and depending on the quality of the pack.

Last night I ran one last test with the existing brake servo. I disconnected the linkage and it still drew enough to shut down the BEC like I'd been describing.

So I went ahead and swapped it out...

I'll try to get a hold of a temporary replacement servo just to give it a test. I wonder if I could get away with a standard plastic gear servo from the LHS.
