Cobra,

Any chance of your organisation making 6v Nomadio React Battery Packs?

Outstanding radio, but disappointing in battery department even using Lipos. Any help would be greatly appreciated Cobra.

your talking about the tx battery right ??

well 6.4 volt will be good for it as the nomadio like other radios and recievers have a tolerence of .5 of a volt

servos are the biggest power guzzlers not radios .

Angelo,

Yes I am talking about the Transmitter battery for the React.

I'm not doubting you at all, however can you assure me 100% on the React having .5v tolerance?

As far as I am aware reading the Nomadio Forum's, the React can't even take a 6V 5 cell stick pack that have been used in receivers in the past like this http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...r-Pack-1400mAh, they have to be 4 cell AA battery packs like this http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Nomadio-React.

I don't have the extra $$$$ for a new radio. I need to assured.



Thanks for your help Angelo, kindly appreciate all your help.

Dear jesus

What people dont realise is that all low voltage electronics have tolences .Did you know that for example the IC we use in our servos is rated at 2v-9v its the motor in the servos that slowly burns out not the electronics if its above 6.6 volts etc the motors after time starts to fail not the electronics.

Alot of people think its the electronics that are in danger with servos etc it's not its the motor can't handle the high voltage thats why now some companies are trying to get these hv motors into servos with no success

I know the company which i wont mention who makes servo's for alot of high end companies and we chat everyday actually and all the hv motors are coming out of Japan but are still failing in hv applications .Alot of guys think that when there servo burns out its the electronic circuit board that has failed but its not 95% of the time its the motor.

Im sure the Nomadio can handle the 6.4 volts.I have a nomadio and i will test it in the next couple of days just to rest your mind .

take care jesus

talk soon

regards Angelo

Hi guys,

Mixed news for anyone wanting to use the "hump" pack battery in the rc8b forward battery box - it does sort of fit vertically, but its very very snug, to the point that the box doesnt fully seal. Trying to get one to fit horizontally isn't even close.

It's only a mm or two too tall and too long, but with the shape of the box thats all it takes to mess up the fit.

Thanks for your help Angelo, kindly appreciate all your help.

Even alkaline batteries are over 1.5v when fresh. more like 1.6v. NiMh AA's are over 1.54v when full charged.

All electronics have built in buffer.

If you don't believe use a DMM and check a fresh Alkaline AA yourself.

How is this possible? Was the lipo 2000mah being used with or without a regulator? Do you have a discharge graph showing time vs voltage for your packs? The reason i ask when using a lipo with regulator, you have consistant servo speed from start to finish.
