    Is there anywhere to have the Phantom make an audible alarm when the battery gets low? It seems silly to have the insanely loud speaker onboard and have it's only use be to make a door chime sound on startup.

    Well, I suppose that'll have to do.

    Maybe I can hack the onboard one to play Flight of the Valkyries.

    Good luck, but NAZA is not the O.S.S.

    Since we're on the subject, what voltage setting do people set these at while flying? (I believe some only work in increments of .3?),so I'm guessing which is ideal to have it go off at? 3.3v or 3.6v?
    I'm guessing at 3.3v, you want to land asap, but wondering how much flight time it usually offers (on a heavy Phantom)
    tho I know battery failsafe usually kicks in before it reaches that level (unless it's altered in the NAZA)

    I have this one, as well as one that's dumber and ONLY goes off at 3.3 with basic LED's
