What did you set it for? If around 20-30%, it's hardly noticeable IMO unless you are a hardcore racer.

As for the current limiter, I don't think the current hardware supports this type of measurement. So, that leaves having the ESC detect voltage dips past X amount and pull back on the power until it levels out again. I personally think this would be kinda cool because it would help prevent people with substandard batteries from puffing them, or damaging something else. However, if you have really good batteries that don't drop much voltage under heavy load, the current limiter would be useless.

Again, these ideas are for firmware updates that uses the existing hardware. While some of these ideas hold merit, they require additional circuitry.
