The m11 does drain AA batteries out really fast. I had AA rechargable in mine, and they would last one 5 minute race and I would have to recharge them.

I would recomend getting a LiPo pack or the pack that airtronics sells. The Lipo pack I have in mine now has lasted about 2 months before I needed to recharge it.

I'm using one from eflite. Its a 3 cell 2100 11.1V. I had to grind the ribs off the lid of my radio because it fit a little tight, but it fits and lasts a long time.
