I saw the link for cheapbatterypacks.com and have a question. I have a rx pack that is 4 years old and needs to be replaced (been sitting on a shelf in the garage for 3 years). It came with my JR 8103 and I believe it is an 1100mah pack. What would you guys recommend as far as replacing it? I see 2400mah, but what configuration? I don't know the terminology yet! Thanks!

What would you guys recommend as far as replacing it?
- Four 2400 Sanyo NiCad cells in flat configuration
- 22 AWG wire w/Hitec male connector

Price: $19.50

Thanks Paul!

That configuration would need the battery bars I believe it says. Also, those batteries are 1.2 volts each correct? I didn't see that specifically...

CBenslay,
need the battery bars?
Yes it will. After you go through the custom pack wizard; the quote should list the number of bars they use.
those batteries are 1.2 volts each correct?
The batteries are 1.2v (1.2 x 4 =4.8v) so you'd need four. Unless you're using 6.0v and then you'd need 5 cells.

Hope that helps ,

Paul

Yes, thanks for the help! If I go with 5 cells and 6 volts will I need some kind of regulator?

Thanks again,

Chuck

hey
could just go to radioshack and make your own batteries for about $30-40.....and it will end up being 4000mah that is NIMH that puts out 4.8v...no regulator needed...
can't post the information on here for it wasn't me that came up with the plans...haven't asked the guy yet.....

pm for details.....


Thanks

It depends on your system. I know most Futaba Receivers/Servos support 6v (except for the Gyros), you'd have to check manuals.

I personally would stick with 4.8v.
