- If you are using a LiFePo4 battery, set the battery voltage alarm to 9.3 V or 9.4 V, otherwise the alarm will flash immediately, as the LiFePo battery has different voltage characteristics to that of a LiPo (3.3 V/cell vs 3.7 V/cell). See Which LiPo battery is suitable to Turnigy 9xr PRO? – post 4
