Brilliant , Thank you !

Another Question, My Charge point for my tx at the moment is currently 7.0v , It now seems with the update we can use a Life Battery with an alarm sounding at 6.0-6.2v, Futaba a while ago said that no other battery could be used except for the NIMH supplied ?, and as I remember they also said that under no circumstances should a lipo be used ??, Now there is an Alarm parameter for a lipo batt??
Have they employed a JR programmer , just kidding :
I know more about the internal workings of a woman's brain ( and that aint much) than electronics :shock: :shock: , How safe would it be to run the tx batt (life) down to 6v in terms of signal output and strength?

With a LiFe? Not even a little bit. If a 2 cell LiFe reads 6V that means it's already dead.

The BEST 2 cell lipo you can put in this thing is the Outrage 2s 2500mAh Lipo.

It fits perfectly.

Thanks, yes a lipo works out well in terms ov simmerlar voltages to a 6 cell nimh pack
I how ever do not like the idea of a lipo in my tx , The thought of plugging in and out puts me off !

A life nominal voltage is 6.6v ?, Which is way below ( or about flat any way )a flat 6cell nimh pack , Question is , on 6.6v would I still have a strong signal being transmitted from my tx ?
