Default Battery settings and alarms

I recently bought a VControl and I'm trying to set it up correctly concerning battery and voltage alarms so I won't have to just work with a timer.

Setup is a Logo 550SE with a Scorpion Tribunus ESC.
My flying style is very gentle (not into 3D yet)

Can someone point me to the right direction for the alarm values?
I currently have it set up as in the attached pictures

I'm new to Tribunus, so won't try to help with the ESC settings, but i can tell you that I'm still using the VC for battery management. The tribunus telemetry cable gives Neo/VC the same capability as the MUI.

The battery settings in the Tribunus are not really required, those will lead to ESC slow down when the set values are reached. Only need to set the battery specs in the VBC/t. Your settings look good except change battery ageing to normal or less as you said you are not using them hard.

Also change the used capacity to 80% remembering that the VBC will show and speak the used capacity as 100 to 0% which will still leave you with 20% left in the packs.

Thanks,

Seems like I was flying with a bad battery pack that dipped below even 3.4V after just 2 minutes of mild flying which made me question my settings.

All is ok on a good pack.

On a side note, my charger shows the internal resistance of the batteries while/after charging.
What is the range for good batteries?
My good 6S pack has 13 mOhm, the bad one has 50 mOhm.

My Blade 230S is flying 3S, and those packs go even higher than 50 mOhm (no telemetry to check the voltage there though, the Logo is my first one with telemetry)

Internal resistance will vary greatly with size of pack, bigger capacity less resistance. It will also change between empty or full charge as well as with temperature changes.

5000mAh cells will normally show 2mOhm or less per cell at storage and 1 or less when charged.
