Ok I have a
Hobbico NexSTAR Brushless EP Trainer Select RTF 38
coming next week an the typical batter suggested is 2X 8-Cell 9.6V 3600 mAh NiMH... I read that Lipo will give you longer flight times an just a better flying experience.
problem here is cost So, i have been reading came across the post i have quoted that also mentions the lipo batteries. for some reason I cant find the page that explained in detail about how to set up the plane using lipo....
Does the batter Lipo or NiMH have to be exactly 3600mah ? can they be 3800-4000 mah? if the voltage is correct the mah is current an will only draw what the motor is asking for correct? am sure there has to be some resistor/capacitor in the power system to keep a steady current to the motor I would think.
So can i get a larger mah battery with the same voltage?
Whats the difference between racing battery an other batteries? couldn't u still use it in a plane?
Polyquest 3200mAh 2S RLP 18C Racing Lipo Pack
well i guess i cant post links so goto hobbyking check out produce 9157 an 7295
the other lipo battery with a higher mah i was looking at
Rhino 3700mAh 3S 11.1v 20C Lipoly Pack
if i could use these battier an to have any issues that would be great because the price is exactly what i would like to spend
That aircraft is setup for dual packs only in the stock setup
