    Haha! Ya seriously. I also prefer the motors to stay running until I say so.

    Yeah. Assuming the extra pennies become available, I will be picking up one or more "parts" Solos from eBay and see if I can't work out a level converter or a boost/clamp that'll work. Mind describing how to reliably trigger this phenomenon ?

    Any indication how much the UAVCAN pods will consume, penny-wise?

    There isn't something you can do that will reliably cause it to happen. Slamming the throttle to full power in stabilize would probably be the best way to do it. You'd need to be on master and do things to cause voltage fluctuations.

    I just spent my spare pennies on a spare solo and am pretty interested in testing a level converter for the escs as well! Don't think I will end up confident enough in it to use in non-test situations, but assuaging my curiosity is most of the fun!
