I think the guy at NOBS has succeeded in scaring the heck out of you. I sort of like the guy's attitude, but he might be over complicating things.

Simply from common sense, I will not use Eneloops for high drain, high power, digital servo power.

I will also be getting some experience with A123's, and very carefully. Its another learning curve. These batteries will come from the original mfg., and not some of the fraudulent copies, such as an A123 battery that actually is just a case, with a AA NIMH inside. Scammers are everywhere, so you need to be careful.

Life or lipo are so much better.
Lighter, more powerful, charge faster.

I have Nimh cells in 2 RC trucks for Rx. Between runs which can be weeks or months...I hook them to a wall wart trickle charger on a timer for 1 hour each day. It off sets their tendency to self discharge. These packs are going on 3 years old now.

I use Tenergy Low self discharge NIMH cells in all my Tx and glow heaters.

NiCd/ Nimh batteries
I still use them in gas/ glow planes and classic helis. Analog servos and just remember reboot time is much longer on 2.4ghz Rx than on 72Mhz units. I run 5 cell 6 volt packs

Causality is the Root of all Life!
