RFX features questions

Have not as yet upgraded to the high HP PC RFX requires, so here are a few questions for those who are able to run the new version:

1. In the real world, pilots use a down counter. Does the stop watch now support both up and down counting?
2. Pilots do not fly the packs to zero volts, but to a settable safe Low Voltage Cutoff. Are there now ESC settings available such as LVC, action to take (stop, reduce throttle input, etc.)? Can better approximate flight times by making custom cells with adjusted capacities, but that should not be necessary.

3. In RF 7x hand launches seem to be set at about 25mph. In the real world, if a plane is launched with an upward toss (as I'll have to learn with the FBW), the launch speed is much lower, with flight speed being essentially being achieved by the prop only. RF 7x has no settings to change the hand launch speed (that I've found anyway). As the FBW has no airfoil, it will take some second or so to reach flying speed from such a slow launch, and was hoping to be able to duplicate it in RF.
4. Ditto on the discus launch-- no user settable launch speed found. Is there one in RFX?


Enjoy a great week and weekend!
