Short flight times.

    An observation on short flight times when using an Inductrix control board or an early Inductrix FPV controller. While waiting for some new boards I cranked out a quick Inductrix based Tiny Whoop with a flying weight including battery of 25 grams. I was disappointed in the 2 minute flight times even on good batteries. I discovered however that the batteries were not fully discharged. My theory is that the voltage sensing circuits on these controllers is seeing a hefty voltage drop due to higher current loads and kicking in too early.
    That leads to a question. Are the new programmable boards like the Beecore capable of having the voltage cutoff point programmed?
