I have two machines running Align regulators hooked to 2S Lipo and/or LiIon. The others are running 4 cell NiCD's.

I think an interesting combo would be 2S A123's hooked directly to the RX with servos capable of 7V and a regulator for the tail/throttle. Like the crack pack but not 8V. I think some of the Hitec servos are rated for 7V. This would allow you to pound a charge into the flight pack, remove the big regulator and get great performance with a slightly cheaper setup.

started with nicads, moved to nimh then two years ago I switched to li-ons (fromeco). I finally decided to move to lipos 3 months ago. I've never looked back and I'm happy with all the choices I made

Going to lipo on everything. About 75% switched over at this point.

Li-po in 5 helis, NiMH in 1. NiMH in 2 planks, 3 with Li-po. That's 8 lithium versus 3 nickel. The aircraft with NiMH powered receivers/servos are all older models. See the trend! Lithium rules! I think Kurt Cobain would have agreed - but then, Nevermind.

Mostly NiCD and MiMH with one LiPo . . . don't really see any need for the complexities of LiXX cells on most my stuff . . .
