I'm a little unsure of what problems you are solving on this one for the battery side that the old versions couldn't already do.
Are you doing anything that directly interfaces with the phase wires of the RC motor?
(it does not look like it)
With the brushed version (which I plan to make a Version 2.0 eventually that resolves the old problems) it's really simple and just uses a comparator and a sensor. This seems to add a lot of new "stuff".
What's all the new stuff for?
Basically the throttle pulldown part is a universal thing and should not require any of these other features. Or is the LVC cutoff addition a feature that just needed adding?
My latest design uses:
1 voltage regulator (to get a clean non-conflicting power supply)
1 current sensor (to measure the current)
1 comparator (to know when to pulldown the throttle)
...and then some connective stuff. I'm going to skip all the variable resistor stuff because the precision of the factory parts (like the sensor) is rated as something like 1% so if I use the correct parts it should not need adjustment.
