    Battery level in top right corner (request for next update)

    So since the new E-Revo 2.0's VXL-6S and the latest firmware for the X-Maxx's VXL-8S provide built-in ESC telemetry for motor rpm, ESC temperature and battery voltage: please give us the option to point the right corner vehicle battery level indicator to the ESC's battery voltage, rather than the receiver temp/voltage sensor - that you also need to use because of it being combined with the motor temperature sensor.

    Would be great to have that option in the Traxxas Link app in the next version!
    Right now, you're looking at an always 'empty' (one red bar) battery status, while the voltage reading from the ESC on the dashboard is (of course) where it should be at.

    Be sure you went though model setup within the app and selected what cells your running on: 4s or 6s. If 6s is selected for your battery and your running 4s thatís why it thinks itís dead.

    That is all set ok.
    The top right battery indicator reads 'empty' because you need to plug the voltage tap that is combined with the motor temp sensor to a free receiver port in order for the motor temp sensor to work.
    When you use the voltage tap to hook it to the positive battery terminal, it will read out ok, but that would be redundant because of the VXL-6S/8S new built-in voltage telemetry. Cleaner setup this way also.

    So the top right battery indicator reads the 6V bec voltage, forcibly. Would be great if the Link app provided an option to point its source to the ESC voltage instead. Fingers crossed.
