    At what voltage level should you get a battery alert ?? Vibration in the controller.

    Just charge everything before you go out and fly. Don't get lazy about charging the ST10 or the ST16.

    And at what voltage do you actually NEED to land? 14,6 indeed gives the alert but you can keep on flying for quite a while after that...

    You can, especially if you have lots of money for batteries. Typical low point for a cell runs between 3.4 and 3.7v/cell. Those that go for the lower values replace batteries a lot more often than those than stay to the higher side. Your battery has 4 cells, do the math and make your choice. Personally, mine's on the ground by 14.8v, with a rare exception down to 14.7v. I never receive a battery warning. Getting one means I flew the battery down too far for my safety limits.
