Back in the mid 1980's I had a number of electrified sailplanes. Receiver power was a Nicad pack. Those sailplanes generally do not get a lot of operation of their elevator/rudder commands, so the overall milliampere hours pulled out of the battery pack was pretty low.

I had a number of two hour plus flights on my 10 foot wingspan Craftaire Viking Sailplanes.

Retired and the days are just too short, busier than ever!
