Lipo Tx battery
So I have to replace the battery in my spektrum, and was considering going to a Lipo pack. Anyone else out there running these? they are only about $10 more than a regular replacement pack and is 2600mah instead of the 1500mah of the stock one.

I was wondering if there was any other advantage other than the extended battery life? Also was wondering on the fit, I assume that they will fit in the stock location.. Any problems with these?

I have a lipo in my 9303 and it works great.

Been runnin it for over 2 years.

Make sure you get one made for TX's....... and dont use the wall charger anymore after you do. Could get nasty...

I put a HobbyCity (2650 mAH) lipo in my DX7 last month. On the first charge, I got 60 flights!!!! That's over 10 hours of transmitting time. Working on the second charge now. Probably should do the Dimension engineering voltage regulator mod, but I haven't gotten around to doing that yet.

Not all lipos will fit, purchase a lipo that states it is for a Tx or read the measurements on the battery to make sure it will fit. Most lipos for Tx's have a low C rating and are inexpensive.

Also, if you place two diodes in series, the output voltage will mimic the standard Tx battery.

An advantage not already mentioned is charge time. Try charginging your nicad in just one hour. But the extended flight time alone is worth it.

They work really good! You get a ton of flights before you have to recharge them. I recharge them when my voltmeter in the 9303 says 11v and I still probably have 50% charge left!Team Sanjel!
