Default rx battery runtime

How long of an average runtime can you get from a fully charged 1900 mah nimh receiver battery using high torque servos?

depends on the servos. some HV servo's draw more current than others. 30 minutes + should be a safe bet, but you should test it. Run it for 15 minutes non stop and then see how many MAH you used

My 1/8 onroad consumes about 600mAh in an half hour using Savox 1257 or ACE 1015 servo's, a runtime of 80 minutes is normal on my 1600mAh pack

I use Jr high voltage servos with an orion 1900mah nimh and I can do 45 mins of racing no problems. I haven't tried an hours racing but I think with the battery trickle charging until 5 mins before the main final I think you should make it.

I'm running a JR9100T and a Hitec 7950 HV servo. I just wanted to make sure I could run a 30-40 min main. I'm slooowly upgrading to run straight lipo, but not there yet!

Thanks!

I run both the 9100 S and T in my truck with a xpdr and have gotten numerous 45 minute mains on my 1600 Ofna packs. They are also 2 years old too. You should be good just peak them right before the main to be on the safe side
