Default Parkzone Radian battery question..

Simple question here... how do I know when its going to run out (the lipo in the plane), I am pretty nervous of losing power while in mid air? is there any indication or tell tail signs as to when the Bat is going to die?

Many thanks

I run mine about 6 minutes total. I timed a flight running the battery all the way to cutoff. 6 minutes leaves plenty left. I checked the pack voltage and it is about 11.3 which is not hurting it at all. I timed with a countdown timer on my tx set for 6 minutes of throttle and it beeps to let me know.

I use a Futaba 9C tx, not a DX one so you many not get a beep.
