HL does NOT have a built in cutoff, you have to install your own alarm/monitoring system like slowstartgjh's link.
Tamiya and ElMod both have low voltage cutoffs, 6v in Tamiya and ElMod has 6v and 9v depending on 2 or 3 cell Lipo.

Hi Check this out to this has more power than Li-po , without  all the problems Li-po brings  8)
5000mAh 9.6v Ni-MH  you can use standed charger to :o

You really need to use a BMS (Battery Management System)with Li-po batteries configured
in series' or trouble will result :'(
