Re: 7 volts vs. 8.5 volts?

I'm curious about where the 7 and 8.5 V figures came from. LiPo batteries all have the same nominal voltages (full = 8.4V, nominal operating = 7.4V, empty = 6.0V). Voltage under load can vary depending on the internal resistance of the battery and the load current, so that certainly can be a factor, but the charge state of the batter would have a much greater affect under all but the heaviest load conditions.
