Hi All,

I'm in the process of finishing up a long dormant Trex 700 Nitro build, and I'm looking for battery recommendations. First off, I'm more of a 'scale' flyer with occasional 'light' aerobatics, such as loops and rolls, so I won't be throwing this heli around at all. In fact, once it's wrung out, I'll probably mount a scale fuselage on it! Second, I'm a NiCad and NiMH guy, and although I've used LiPo's, I'm much more familiar and comfortable with more "traditional" battery technologies.

I'm using a BLS251 rudder servo on this heli, which is limited to 4.8V, so my thinking is to power this helicopter with a largish (3000 mAH) 4.8V NiCad/NiMH pack, or a similarly sized 6.0V NiCad/NiMH pack with a regulator on the rudder servo.

Thoughts?

Thanks All!

John

How about a 2 cell LiFe pack with a step down lead to the tail?

You can use them very much like a NiMH pack but they don't self discharge, you get more capacity per gram, they charge faster and they are safer than Li-po's! Its win win win!

60% of the time, it works every time!
