BatMon is a module that connects to you batteries to "smartify" them. BatMon reads the cell voltage, current and relays it to autopilot or the onboard computers. We made a quite a bit of improvements in the latest v3 devkit. The most important is…

"Batmons do not have an electronic safety cutoff. It relies on the autopilot to make the decision to land/cutoff power based on the state-of-charge data provided by Batmon"

"Hi Thomas,

We have the "smart battery monitor" developed already
Battery alarms aren't good enough enough for accurate battery estimate"

Over the past couple of months, we have been working on a "smartification kit" to obtain accurate state of charge for Lithium batteries. Currently most systems use voltage based capacity estimation which is inaccurate and make it hard for flyers…
