better go with a bigger hyrdrimax sub c cell pack, thats what I use. I use the 4200mah sub C nimh pack, tad heavy but you probibly wont even notice it. Gives me about 15+ flights per charge

Lipo's you say?

I fly planes more than helis I have one of the little parkzone T-28's it uses 2100mah 3S lipo's. I bought a $20 Castle Creations BEC you can run a couple gallons of gas through My nitro sipping R30 before it needs charged. Its a little more complicated then you wanted but once installed its great. And there is nothing like being able to charge your RX pack on the flightline in just a few minutes.

No Really I am the club President!!!

I wouldnt be a big fan of NIMH batterys, i have sub c size 3200 mah Nicads in all my helis apart from the raptor titan which is a two cell 3ooo mah li-po. Each has its advantages i suppose.

If it doesnt move and its meant too... use WD 40. If it moves and its not meant too...use duct tape!

I use lipos now but have found that the nicads last longer than
the nimh batteries do with the same mah rating.

Well.
I forgot to turn it on once. Got a couple lap's around the patch, and well --- I thought it was a acting bit weird at idle - sitting their.

It was a divine moment - O.period - S. period

RAPTOR 4D, thats why i dont like the NIMH batterys as i have found the same as you, they dont last as long as nicads.

If it doesnt move and its meant too... use WD 40. If it moves and its not meant too...use duct tape!
