    They seem to be less common, but they do exist. http://www.amazon.com/Lipo-Alarm-Low.../dp/B004DEOW7G

    No idea how well buzzers work though, I'll always be using the standard lvc.

    You just connect it to the balance plug. The reason the other cut offs all connect to the ESC is so the cut off can stop the motor temporarily to alert you that the voltage is low. Any one that doesn't connect to the ESC is just an alarm. That one is supposed to light up and make noise, but like I said, I have no idea how effective it is.

    Often yes, they have high capacity. The lipo discharge curve is also more flat than NiMH, they deliver power more consistently throughout the entire run.

    Just get a voltage checker and check it at 2 minted 4 min 6 min 8 yada yada till you get down to 3.7 then run it a few minutes less then that and check it
    Then time your drive time

    I wouldn't count on 3 volt lvc as a battery protection at that low the battery is already being damaged

    When in doubt shut her down

    A good charger is a must and the first tool that's needed.
