Default Battery Pack to last 1 hour final....?


I'm going to be racing soon and the final is going to be run over 1 hour???!

I have a hump back 5 cell AAA battery pack in at the moment 850 mAh.
Should that get me through the full hour?

If not.....what pack will.
I run an M11 with Hitec 925 servo's.

Thanks for your help.

Of course they do.........as long as you charged them nice and clean, and PRAY..........
The recent 1/8th WORLD over at Italy......the A main is 1 hour long, and I bet there are some racers are using AAA packs...........however, there are things that you have to watch....for example, chassis like Serpent's new 960 are using mulitpack system that you can use AAA or back to the 2/3A cells...and the reason is, for 1 hour, 2/3A cells probably would be a lot SAFER then AAA (safer about run time...)....you can get 2/3A like 1250mah or 1300mah....the highest AAA that I have seen are 900mah Sanyo....a lot of racer decide to give up a little bit of weigh instead of a DNF, even on a 30 minutes main......and thats why 960 is accepting 2/3A or AAA on its new design.

Also, Digital servos use more juice...........the endpoint setting of your servo does matter as well.

If your car can use 2/3A, I think that will be safer for 1 hour racing.
