Here's where we excel.. we build the very finest, most robust battery packs you can get anywhere, tailored for R/C flight operations.

All our packs are built from the finest NiMH and Nicad cells currently available. 

All of them can be fast charged at the field and are designed to perform with unsurpassed dependability in the most demanding R/C environments.

 

Exceptional Quality, No Compromises.

 

 Note: Sanyo has sold it's NiCad production facilities to Panasonic, it's NiMH production facilities to FDK/Twicell. Current production is of the same quality, most retained lines are still made in the same production facilities. Please bear with us as we continue to update the website to reflect the steadily diminishing availability of QUALITY NiMH & NiCad cells, our pack labeling and cart system with the new branding.

Using the Impedance Rating
to pick the right pack for the way you Fly. 

 

Most folks react to the 'capacity' rating alone as being the biggest part of their decision in selecting a pack for their big aggressive birds. This can lead to big trouble on board the aircraft. Just as cells are evaluated for capacity, in high load applications you need to take into consideration what the cells voltage performance will be when loads are applied. All battery technologies react to servo loads with a voltage drop while the load is applied. It's really very simple.. the higher the cells impedance rating, the greater the voltage drop will be while servo loads are applied. Rule of Thumb for cell selection: Impedance Ratings are like a Golf Score. The lower, the better. Aircraft in agressive aerobatic enviornments employing digital high torque servos should carry a cell impedance score of 10 mOhms or less.  As an example, one of the most popular lightweight packs used in IMAC aircraft is the Sanyo HR 2700AUX.. plenty of capacity, but the impedance rate on the cell is 20 mOhms. Pretty high.. but if it's used in parallel with another 2700 pack the impedance rate is cut in half to 10 mOhms (and the available capacity is doubled). This is why you usually see this pack employed in parallel in IMAC birds and used without issues as a single pack in a giant Cub.

NoBS  1200  A Series Nicad 4 & 5 Cell Rx & Ignition Packs

1200cell2.JPG
Cell Size: Full A
Type: High Rate Nicad
Dimensions: .67 x 1.99
Cell Weight: 1.1oz
Impedance: 10 mOhms
Here's a reduex of the venerable Cadnica A sized Nicad.. long the favorite of sport and giant scale fliers alike. Being an 'A' sized cell it's the same height as the oem AA's and slightly larger in diameter than AA. It is significantly smaller than the bigger Sub-C Nicad packs, yet it has enough grunt to handle any ignition load and moderate digital servo loading. It can also be reliably fast charged at the field. In higher drain aggressive applications or just for redundancy in medium sized Warbirds we routinely use it in parallel for a capacity and load carrying boost on board without excessive weight gain.

The N-1900SCR is the 'workhorse' Sub-C Nicad. Rugged and economical, this cell has set the standard for high load, high current dependability for decades. Long a favorite for Giant Scale modelers, this pack does yeoman duty with all types of giant scale servos including the modern digitals. It's also used extensively for on-board glow and ignition applications. Looking for a pack that will provide years of solid performance without the need for extended capability chargers? This is it!

  Now available as a 6 cell, 7.2v Turbine/ECU or Ignition Pack!
Built to take the massive current loading that 'Kero Start' Turbines can dish out, and configured in either 'Flat', '2x3 Stick' or '3x2 Brick' shapes. Connector and wiring options for most applications are available, including a second lead with a standard system connector for easy installation of a charge port for checking and charging ECU packs without the hassle of digging inside the plane.
We reccomend 18g cabling for all ignition applications and the 14g cabling for ECU or other high current loaded applications. For a second lead to handle charging on a pack with 14g cabling select 'add 18g  JR/Universal lead for charging'.

The HR-2700AU Series Rx & Ignition pack, run in Parallel, dominated Giant Scale projects with size and weight restrictions for decades prior to the arrival of Li-Ion. A solid and dependable performer, it remains a popular ignition system favorite in Giant Scale warbirds and as an Rx pack in mildly aerobatic applications with moderate servo loading. For aggressive flying & with digital servos they are at their best used in a Parallel Pack system with dual switches to cut voltage drop relative to impedance AND improve total flying capacity. Price includes 18g JR/Univ conn. Custom cabling and connectors available.

Cell Size: Full Sub-C
Type: High Rate NiMH
Dimensions: .9 x 1.69
Cell Weight: 1.9oz
Impedance: 8 mOhms
 
 
 
The NiMH 3000 Sub-C has been with us a long time... dependability and load carrying capability being paramount, this cell sits on top. It's the highest capacity NiMH we'll stock... the 4000 - 4500 ma 'paint ball' cells just can't compare when it comes to reliable service in rough conditions.  Always a favorite in big warbirds, tow planes and anyplace else where the work is serious and dependability under load counts.
