I encountered this companys NiCd batteris in an alectronics store and now im wondering wheter they are suitable in RC hobby.
Those are 1.v 750mAh cells and really cheap and come with soldering leads.
Can anyone tell me how to measure the amerage they give out (don't know all the words to explain it, but...)
Can anyon tell me how to measure wheter the battery is suitable more for digital cameras and long endurance, or for RC plane with high power and lesser duration.
The marking on the cell is N750AA1L. cant find info about it on manufacturers page.

Well the marking N750AA1L tells you it has 750mAh capacity and the size is AA. For AA 750mAh of capacity is not really exciting... You get batteries with 2300mAh of the same size!
You won't be able to squeez much current out of them. If you are lucky the cells will hold 3A.

this manufacturer makes rc accus aswell with higher current, but i was just wondering wheter those are any good.
I need to make a 7-8 element battery pack for some motor almost equivalent to speed400.

Speed 400 motors draw about 10 to 12 Amps. AA cells are only good for about 3-5 Amps because they're meant for low-draw, high-capacity applications like children's toys.

Unless you're willing to part with the money to experiment, I would pass on these.
