A lil' history ...
    This project involved the building of "VOLT-MON", an R/C Battery Voltage Monitor using a PIC microcontroller.  This gadget also is capable of recording 240 voltage samples, from rates ranging from two sample per second (2 minutes total), to two samples per minute (120 minutes total). After collecting its required samples, the use can hook up "Mini-Volt" to its programming/download cable and read the samples, whereas you can then plot the recorded voltage data.  An integrated Low-Voltage Alarm (LVA) is also included in the design and notifies the user when approaching low voltage levels by flashing a bright LED and/or by stuttering the ESC.
