NiCad & NiMH Receiver Packs for Sport, Scale & 
Pattern/3-D Aircraft  to 15 lbs

Once the domain of casual trainers and sport flyers, the .25 to .90 sized R/C airplane of today is far more likely to be a retract equipped Scale Warbird or a U-Can-Do 3D type aerobat than a Sig Kaydett or Senorita. As the number of flyers operating faster, stronger more aggressive and complicated aircraft increased, radio system manufacturers followed suit by making available stronger, faster and higher torque servos. On today’s .60 size aircraft, retract systems, glow drivers and/or high output-high speed servo's are commonplace instead of extraordinary. I find it amazing that folks still try to fly these planes with a ‘factory’ provided pack, when they’d never for a second use the ‘factory’ provided servos for anything much more demanding than operating the throttle in the same plane. 

Today's new radio systems take good advantage of  computer technology and are designed to compliment and refine this new breed of R/C aircraft and style of flying. Yet, after nearly two decades of systems development, we're still seeing that same 600ma pack provided as OEM in the set and in the box. If you've got a high output servo system, handling a plane doing aerobatics Gramps and his Kaydett can't even name, it follows that you should consider upgrading to a pack a little more competent at delivering power in a high load environment than Gramps' battery pack.
 
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 shoot for a combined 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). Which is why you usually always see this pack employed in parallel in IMAC birds and used without issues as a single pack in a big scale Cub.

FDK Twicell /Eneloop NiMH Rx Packs

2000 Series AA FDK Twicell / Eneloop NiMH Rx Packs
-
 I've been having my arm jostled for years about adding the eneloops as Rx packs.. after 4 years of use of these in Tx applications they have proved themselves to be excellent performers. If you are a sport flyer with smaller aircraft that can only fit AA sized packs, fly occasionally or are just looking for a pack you can charge on Monday and use of Friday, then this may be your solution. We have made them available as 4 or 5 cell packs, flat or square and the price includes a standard 22g JR/Univ connector appropriate for all common radio system types.
-
The Sanyo Eneloops are unique NiMH cells and have proved themselves outstanding performers in low current static environments. The charge retention is outstanding and when properly cared for provide years of dependable service. It must be noted that using them on board the aircraft as Rx packs opens up a a big can of worms... these cells are fragile, can be easily damaged by aggressive charge routines and should not be used in high temp, high vibration environments as that use pattern can degrade the cell rapidly. It must also be noted that these cells have high internal impedance.. use of these packs in aggressive high drain applications and/or with high load digital servos is NOT recommended.
-
Eneloop Care and Feeding Notes: Eneloops arrive with aprrox 50-70% of charge in them.. the cells have been pre-formed and tested by Sanyo (this is the only cell they do this with) AND ARRIVE WITH A PARTIAL CHARGE IN THEM. DO NOT OVERCHARGE THESE PACKS!  Eneloops should be slow charged at approx 1/2 of the usual C-10 rates.. for the AA 2000 approx 100-120ma OR LESS. Peak (fast) charge, if necessary should be a bit less than 1/2 the normal C rate.. for the AA 2000 at 1 amp or less. USE TEMP CONTROL.. when the pack warms up (fast or slow charge) STOP THE CHARGE.  
-
 WARRANTY:  We offer a non-DOA warranty on Eneloop Rx packs.. there is no warranty for capacity, duty cycle lifetimes, etc.. again, I must emphasise, these cells are fragile, purchase and use is entirely at your own risk. 

   All Assembled FDK Twicell /Eneloop Sport Rx packs come with and the price includes a 22g HD JR/Univ system connector.

NoBS  1400  A Series Nicad 4 & 5 Cell Rx & Ignition Packs

NoBS1400.jpg
Cell Size: Full A
Type: High Rate Nicad
Dimensions: .67 x 1.99
Cell Weight: 1.1oz
Impedance: 12 mOhms
Here's a reduex of the venerable Cadnica 1400AE.. long the favorite of sport and giant scale fliers alike. It's an 'A' sized cell, same height as the oem AA's and slightly larger in diameter than AA, it is however significantly smaller and lighter 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.

2100 Series '4/5 A'  NiMH Rx / Ignition Pack

DSCN5734.jpg

2100 Series 'AA' Rx & Ignition Pack
-
The HR-2100AU Series Rx & Ignition pack is a popular favorite in larger sport scale models and it's also being used in place of the 1650 AA NiMH packs in pattern planes. For the big 3-D birds, it's best used in a Parallel Pack system with dual switches to cut voltage drop relative to impedance and improve total flying capacity. Small footprint & light weight. Ships with HD 22g leads and either Futaba or JR/Hitec/AirtZ connectors.

Cell Size: Full 'A'
Type: Medium Rate NiMH
Dimensions: .67 x 1.99
Cell Weight: 1.3oz
Impedance: 17 mOhms
 

The 2700AFH carries the same full-size 'A' footprint as the Sanyo Nicad 1600 at about the same impedance rate. This makes it a suitable candidate for 3D aerobatic birds when used in parallel with digital servos. With capacity higher than physically larger nicad Sub-C's and with significantly less weight this pack will fit where others won't with a capacity punch above it's weight class. 

For high drain applications (33% sized birds and larger) this pack should be run in parallel with dual switches to spread current loading across both packs. Run as a pair, these weigh only slightly more than a single 4000 Sub-C pack and yield better than 5,000ma of airborne capacity.
