It is simple to implement that. I posted a couple of circuits that can do it for you, or for people with programmable transmitters- you can do it in code without much effort. But the point is to look at peak voltage as your resting voltage, and then also keep an alarm for peak dip, since there is a strong case for lipo cell damage from dips that exceed some minimum value (i.e. 2.8v or whatever, depending on chemistry).
