    You might want to consider changing the battery manager code from "disable the motors, and flash the LED" to using a latching relay. IE you mash a button to close the relay, and boot the system, but when the Arduino kicks on, it holds the relay enabled. https://i.stack.imgur.com/q3h8v.png This way, when the Arduino detects the low power situation, it drops the relay, and the battery stops having any real draw.
